Vegan (alt.food.vegan) This newsgroup exists to share ideas and issues of concern among vegans. We are always happy to share our recipes- perhaps especially with omnivores who are simply curious- or even better, accomodating a vegan guest for a meal!

Default Nutritional yeast and brewer yeast

In Britain people look strangely and say that they have just brewer
yeast. Is it the same thing as nutritional yeast?

Second question, where I can get it in Britain?

PS. I do not have a vegan cat yet. In fact, I was just researching
possibilities if it is possible for cat to be a vegan.

Thanks in advance,
Jupiter

Cats cannot survive on a meat free diet. They're obligate carnivores.

Thanks in advance,

As another poster has already replied, cats cannot be
strictly vegetarian. They are obligate carnivores,
meaning they *must* eat meat, or they will not get
essential nutrients (the essential nutrient is the
amino acid taurine).

But more to the point, why do you think it's right for
you to impose your pseudo-ethical beliefs on your cat?

"Jupiter" might not want to buy meat if [s]he's vegan, so the
decision whether or not to go ahead and buy an obligate
carnivore will probably depend on it.

No. They're very different, and not interchangeable.

Mail order or shop?

NO. I realize there are some people who think cats can be vegan, but I
find it morally reprehensible that such people arrogantly force their
alternative lifestyle values on a helpless creature nature has seen fit
to live by its own specific set of values. Cats do not eat rice and
beans. They eat fish, mice, meat, and offal. Please don't go so loopy
into veganism that you project your peculiar sensitivities onto other
helpless species.

If you love your cat you won't even think of putting him/her on a vegan
diet - they are naturally carnivorous!
