Recently, there have been some sensationalist headlines regarding vegan diets and choline. The Vegan Society has issued a statement which makes it clear that choline is not a particular concern for vegans:
"This nutrient is widely distributed in plant foods because it’s present in cell membranes. Soya products, quinoa and broccoli are some of the best plant-based sources.
These sensationalised articles are based on a study carried out by Dr Emma Derbyshire, a nutritionist who is a member of the Meat Advisory Panel.
