Vegans, I hate to break it to you, but it might be time to wave goodbye to your avo toast… apparently.
According to the BBC Comedy Quiz Show QI, avocados aren’t vegan.
Confused? Me too.
Basically, it turns out that these plant-based, #insta sensations are pretty hard to cultivate naturally and therefore they rely on migratory beekeeping.
And what is migratory beekeeping?
It is basically when bees are placed on trucks and taken long distances in order to cultivate the land so avocados can grow.
So, in theory, avocados aren’t vegan for the same reason as honey – they both require the use of bees in a somewhat ‘unnatural way’.
