    1. Comment a-t-il réussi à créer un calisson vegan sans perdre sa saveur et sa consistance si particulières ? Les blancs d'oeufs ont été tout simplement remplacés par une décoction de pois chiche. "

      Aquafaba mon vieux.

    2. Sans colorant ni conservateur, le premier calisson vegan de l'histoire possède pour en différencier l'aspect une très légère poudre de romarin sauvage séché sur le nappage. "Le plus difficile, insiste Adrien Candas, ça a été de trouver la bonne température pour le cuire et surtout à quelle hauteur l'installer dans le four, cela avait une véritable incidence sur son aspect. Puis, il a fallu observer comment le calisson vegan évoluait dans le temps."

      La deuxième révolution française !

    1. Vegans had higher testosterone levels than vegetarians and meat-eaters, but this was offset by higher sex hormone binding globulin, and there were no differences between diet groups in free testosterone, androstanediol glucuronide or luteinizing hormone.

    1. Vegans had the highest intakes of fibre, vitamin B1, folate, vitamin C, vitamin E, magnesium and iron, and the lowest intakes of retinol, vitamin B12, vitamin D, calcium and zinc.

      Of note, vegans consume more iron. Since non-heme iron absorption is regulated (i.e. titrated in proportion to stores), this does not mean vegans absorb more iron. Importantly, however, it does translate into no greater risk of anemia for vegans as compared to meat eaters.
