Is shea nut vegan?

Shea nuts are the edible fruit of the shea tree, native to West Africa. These nutrient-packed nuts boast a high concentration of vitamins A and E, antioxidants, and healthy fats. They have a rich, creamy texture and a mild, nutty flavor that's reminiscent of almonds. Shea nuts are versatile ingredients used in both sweet and savory dishes, as well as in skincare products for their moisturizing and healing properties. Harvested by hand and processed traditionally, shea nuts are an important part of the local economy and culture in West African countries.

Shea nut is a vegan food ingredient.
