Is prickly pear fruit vegan?

Prickly pear fruit, also known as Opuntia, is a vibrant and juicy fruit that comes from the prickly pear cactus. The fruit has a unique oval shape and a bright, cheerful color that ranges from yellow to pink to red. The thick, spiny skin protects the tender, succulent flesh inside, which is dotted with small, crunchy seeds. Prickly pear fruit has a refreshing, slightly sweet taste that is reminiscent of watermelon or kiwi, making it a delicious addition to salads, smoothies, and cocktails. It is also packed with nutrients, including vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants, and is known to have anti-inflammatory properties.

Prickly pear fruit is a vegan food ingredient.
