A lot of South Koreans are now switching to a vegan diet due to the rising awareness about the health benefits of eating plant-based foods. According to the Korean Vegetarian Union (KVU), there are around 500,000 strict vegans that currently live in South Korea. And approximately 1.5 million people eat a plant-based diet in their daily routine.
One of the major reasons responsible for the high popularity of a vegan diet among Koreans is the health benefits associated with this plant-based diet. In addition to this, the rising awareness about animal rights and the need to create a clean environment is also boosting the demand for a vegan diet.
Lee Won-bok, the head of the Korean Vegetarian Union (KVU) has added that a lot of Korean people are preferring a vegan diet over other diet options. The popularity of a vegan diet is increasing widely among athletes and youngsters who are focusing on achieving a healthy body.
Many vegan campaigns are now being run at a global level to spread awareness about the benefits of turning into a vegan. And their effect can be easily seen in South Korea where people are now preferring plant-based foods in their everyday routine.
It is observed that South Korean people are completely embracing a vegan lifestyle and they are also making the use of plant-based products to raise their voice against animal cruelty. Through their social media platforms, South Koreans are also sharing everything about the benefits of choosing a vegan lifestyle to live a healthy and prosperous life.
