Advances in the Development of Meat Analogues and its Role in Prevention of Nutritional Deficiency in Vegetarians - A Review
Shiyas Kaliyadan | Supriya Singh Gaur
Abstract: Meat is regarded as the best quality protein source not only because of its nutritional qualities but also because of its valued flavor. Meat is also important in terms of sustainability since it is one of the most energy-intensive and environmentally damaging food. As part of their eating habits, the worldwide population is on the lookout for nutritional and environmentally beneficial supplies. While animal products are high in protein, the appropriateness of vegetarian protein intake has long been a point of contention. While the lower protein intake and quality of protein in a vegetarian diet are commonly thought to be a concern, there is growing evidence that eating protein from plants rather than animals may be one of the reasons why vegetarians have a lower risk of being overweight, obese, or suffering from chronic disease. Plant-based meat substitutes that closely resemble the structure and feel of meat are gaining popularity. Meat analogues or plant-based products that mimic the characteristics of typical meat products have established a place in the protein food discourse. Veganismpopularity, along with growing concerns about animal welfare, detrimental effects on human health and the environment has fueled demand for meat replacements, mostly plant-based meat analogues.
