    What is the difference in a vegetarian, true vegan, pure, etc. is it what they will or won't eat?

    The difference in the terminology for vegetarians seems to be growing on a huge basis. A friend told me whose sister is a vegan and doesn't even eat cheese that it's according to how far they are committed to what they eat. Is that true and what are the differences or is it all the same and some just follower the term closer than others?

    The terms are not the same. A vegetarian, generally, will not eat animal products if the making of the product kills the animal. So, no dead animals, but they might eat dairy products and/or eggs because getting those doesn't kill the animal. A vegan eats no animal products of any kind, no animals, no products made from any animal parts.

    The definitions according to "Professional Cooking" by Wayne Gisslen, are:

    Vegetarian:  Referring to a diet consisting entirely, or mostly, of foods derived from plants.

    Lacto-vegetarian:  Referring to a vegetarian diet that includes milk and other dairy products

    Lacto-ovo-vegetarian:  Referring to a vegetarian diet that includes dairy products and eggs.

    Pesco-vegetarian:  referring to a vegetarian diet that includes fish. 

    Vegan:  Referring to a vegetarian diet that omits all animal products, including dairy products and eggs. 



    These are the terms being taught in culinary schools to describe the various diets chefs will addressing in whatever profession they go into.
