Vegan Drinks Over Time
Drinking has always been essential for survival. But for centuries it has also played an extremely important role in the way people interact with each other. Drinking brings people together. It helps build friendships. It forms bonds. It unites us.
Alcohol has been an essential part of our social life, especially in the western world. Thousands of years ago, the ancient Greeks gathered at symposiums, where they drank wine for pleasure after a large banquet or meal. Just look at Dionysus, the God of wine - the Greeks worshiped him for a reason!
Pubs (short for pubs) were first invented in the 1st century. The Romans and Anglo-Saxons gathered in alehouses, where they would congregate and gather over a pint of beer. Today, pubs have evolved into bars and clubs, providing the perfect backdrop for social events and to have. a good chin wag - pint, cocktail or something stronger. Taking the party home is always a good idea too, but sometimes it can be tricky to know if your alcoholic drink is vegan. Check out our wide selection of vegan beer , vegan cider , and vegan vegan wine to get you started!
Tea is the second most consumed drink in the world after water. Drinking tea began as early as the 2nd century BC, and it is still consumed more than 2,000 years later. Though native to China and East Asia, the UK is now one of the largest consumers of tea, with 63% of the population drinking the hot drink on a daily basis. In the US, tea can be found in about 80% of all US households! Here at PlantX we sell a wide range of teas for all kinds of occasions. Whether you want to relax or entertain friends and family, we guarantee that you will find the perfect drink here.

Are Vegan Beverages Good For Kids?
There is no simple answer to this! It depends on the nutritional value of the vegan beverage. Some are healthy and some are less healthy. Look for organic drinks without added sugar or nasty preservatives. Always read the label to make sure you know what ingredients and nutritional value the drink has. Be sure to always check the sugar content, too, as kids can still get sugar rushes from fresh juices and naturally carbonated drinks!
Is Artificial Sweetener Vegan?
Yes, common artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose are vegan, BUT they are not necessarily the best ones for our bodies. They’re artificial and usually have a chemical aftertaste. It's also been suggested aspartame can have a negative effect on your health.
Instead, there are some fantastic plant-based natural sweeteners - many with a lower glycemic index than refined sugar. Have you heard of Monkfruit, Stevia, Coconut Sugar, Maple Syrup, Date Syrup and Agave Syrup? Try it the next time you need some plant-based sweetness in your life.
