Is it possible to get all of the nutrients needed from a vegan diet?

A:

Yes, as stated in the government publication, the Australian Dietary Guidelines. You can find a short summary in our media release "Government recognises vegan diet as viable option for all Australians".

The only nutrient that must be obtained by supplementing is Vitamin B12. This can be obtained either using supplements or eating foods fortified with B12. For more information, see "What every vegan should know about B12".
