Is common purslane vegan?

Common purslane, also known as Portulaca oleracea, is a herbaceous succulent plant that can be found in many countries around the world. With its fleshy, oval-shaped leaves and bright yellow flowers, purslane has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb and a culinary ingredient. Its slightly sour and salty taste makes it a popular addition to salads, stews, and soups. Purslane is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, C, and E, and minerals such as iron, calcium, and magnesium. Due to its hardy nature and low maintenance requirements, it is often grown in gardens and used as a natural ground cover.

Common purslane is a vegan food ingredient.
