It is estimated by scientist that about 2-3 million years ago human beings mutated and separated from apes. And whether you believe in science or religion, there is one thing that is unique to humans and only a few other mammals on the planet. We do not have Neu5Gc or N-Glycolylneuraminic acid which is a molecule found in most non-human mammals. We have Neu5Ac which makes us different. We cannot synthesize the consumption of of mammals or animals that have Neu5Gc because the human gene was irreversibly mutated in our distant past.  

So what does that mean?  

It means our human bodies are negatively affected by eating animal products. In 2015 the World Health Organization published a report that said that the leading cause of cancer in humans was caused by the consumption of animal products including red meat, pork, and processed meats. Further studies since then have shown that 300+ types of other animals have the same thing... including fish!!  

We are the world's leading Vegan cooking academy and that means we do not use products with Neu5Gc. Scientifically it has been proven that humans should not eat food that contains Neu5Gc. 

But, those animal based products taste good and are hard to give up. Cheese is addictive, meat is tasty, and dairy and eggs help so much in making flavorful and memorable dishes.  

We teach to replace those products with plant based and vegan alternatives that are free from Neu5Gc.  So that means you can have a meat and cheese lasagne, or chicken nuggets, or a cheesecake or fancy egg-free souffle that are all made using non-animal products... vegan.
