Is Romesh Ranganathan vegan?

Yes, Romesh is a proud and outspoken vegan and has been since 2013 and was a vegetarian before this. 

According to Viva ‘while on a 2015 Jonathan Ross show he joked about silly questions people ask about his diet, such as “What do you have… water?” to which he replied, “I have compassion.”’ – always quick with a dry yet accurate response.
