Is keluak vegan?

Keluak, also known as the Indonesian black nut or kepayang, is a rare and exotic ingredient commonly used in Southeast Asian cuisine, particularly in Indonesian and Malaysian dishes. This nut comes from the kepayang tree and has a hard, woody shell that contains a black, oily seed. The seed's flavor is earthy and nutty with a hint of bitterness, making it a prized ingredient in traditional stews, curries, and soups. Keluak is also believed to have medicinal properties, and its oil is used in some traditional remedies. However, due to its toxicity, keluak must be properly prepared before consumption.

Keluak is a vegan food ingredient.
