Veganism In Bangladesh

It’s not easy to be vegan in Bangladesh. It is not by choice that Bangladeshi people eat the smallest quantities of meat in the world smallest quantities of meat in the world (4 kg per person per year), but because of its financial cost. A small number of people might define themselves as vegetarians (mostly Hindus and Buddhists) but most of the farming population in the countryside will be busy trying to put enough calories into their bodies from whichever source.

Though a lot of the local cuisine seems vegetarian and tastes like Indian food (see LOCAL FOOD page), meat and fish, which are costly, are actually used much
more in the composition of local dishes, often in tiny quantities but present, sometimes as a source of fat for frying or as crumbs of food left in the frying oil from a previous meat dish. There are a lot of dishes advertised as vegetarian, but make sure to ask if there is any animal product in them in any form.

English is widely spoken, especially in the cities, and people are very willing to accommodate your needs and requirements. Since there is no awareness of veganism, though, expect a few slips of understanding.
