Why should vegans not eat figs or ketchup?

You probably shouldn’t serve figs to vegetarians, or people who aren’t into eating insects.

When a wasp pollinates a fig, she often gets stuck inside.

Edible figs always have at least one dead female wasp stuck inside. You won’t find a whole wasp though – when a female wasp dies inside a fig, an enzyme in the fruit breaks down her carcass into protein.

The fig basically eats the wasp, and makes it into part of the fruit.

Another disgusting fact which might stop you trusting food for life is that to qualify for safe consumption, ketchup is required to contain no more than 30 fruit flies per 100 grams

So, if you’ve eaten figs and ketchup, you have almost definitely eaten both wasps and fruit flies.
