Plant-Based Bakes: A Conscious Choice Without Compromise
Veganism has been growing in popularity on our little Asian island. Recognized as the most vegan friendly city in Asia by PETA Asia, and 6th top vegan city in the world by Happy Cow, it is without any surprise that vegan baking has begun to take Singapore by storm.
Though not necessarily healthier, they generally do contain less saturated fats. Vegan bakes are, however, more environmentally friendly. Without the usage of dairy and eggs, individuals who are wary of unethical farming practices may also turn to vegan desserts as a more sustainable alternative.
The dollar cost of vegan baking, however, is relatively higher as compared to traditional baking. Moving forward, however, we are convinced that plant-based baking (and food in general) is the socially responsible way forward!
