  • Yes! We need to curb our reliance on meat and dairy
  • I’d like to try them, but I wouldn’t completely give up meat
  • No! They’re pricier & most lack the nutritional benefits of meat

      Plant-based meat alternatives have been growing steadily in popularity in the recent few years. Estimated at $5 billion, the market for plant-based meat is expected to increase by 19% annually until 2030. Although, this paints a very flattering picture for this industry, the major companies involved are suffering substantial annual losses. No one yet cracked the formula yet.

      Beyond meat is one of the brands which is selling these meat alternatives, and they’ve marketed their products as environment-friendly and sustainable. While some environment-conscious individuals agree, others are concerned about the heavy pricing of plant-based meat, and its nutritional inferiority when compared to animal meat. This might change in the future with the commercialisation of cellular plant-based meats, but currently these issues are limiting the popularity of plant-based meat alternatives.

      I have tried several different kinds of plant based meats but have yet to find one that I can stomach the texture. I did like the flavoring but the texture made me gag!!

      Hell no, there is no way in the world I would supplement real food for plant based food, We are not a third world country, although the Obiden administration wants us to be, They will still eat meat and vegetables, while the peons he to eat shit. No freaking way, who the fk does Bill Gates think he is anyway. I dont trust him or anyone in the government to dictate anything to me or anyone related to me. Screw him, and screw Obiden and his cronies. Karma is coming for them all.

      They are made with pea protein. Pea protein contains glutamates. Glutamates feed cancer cells. Another way they are trying to make us sick.

      Actually I choosed the first option, because there were no other options, as I am pure vegetarian by birth, so this question is not for me. And I am blesses enough to eat only veg options, I never had and will never eat meat.

      It’s better to use unprocessed plant material.
