Not every animal product has a great plant based alternative (e.g. collagen).
However, most animal products that you cook with or wear have decent alternatives at the very least.
I’ve compiled a list of the most common and useful alternatives that you may need.
Common Substitutions a Vegan Might Need
The table below is sorted in alphabetical order. It has links to more detailed guides for each product so that you can see only the ones that are useful to you.
Most are for cooking ingredients naturally, but it’s nice to have an alternative for things like wool and beeswax as well.
If I’m missing alternatives for a product that you’re really struggling with, let me know and I’ll add it to the table.
If you have any questions, just let me know.
