You may be asking yourself, “What does lactovegan mean?”. Well, lactovegans are individuals who limit their dietary intake to products that include anything considered vegan and dairy products.

Why invent a new term? In American society, the term vegan is very well understood. But, everybody has their own definition of vegetarianism. Depending upon indivdual interpretation, a vegetarian food may include dairy, eggs or fish. To overcome this vagueness in description of  individuals who do not consume meat, eggs, fish etc. but do consume veggies and dairy, we use the term lactovegan.
