Veganism ( /ˈviːgənɪzəm/ ) is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products , particularly in diet, as well as an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of sentient animals.

It's probably no coincidence that gelatin rhymes with skeleton—because that's exactly what it is—animal bones (along with animal skin, hooves, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage all boiled together into a goo that's added to all kinds of candy and baked goods). Luckily, there are plenty of easy gelatin alternatives available so that baking doesn't have to be bad to the bone.
