With Aussies eating more than double the red meat in 2019 than advised by dietary guidelines – and Kiwis eating over a third more – consumers seeking alternatives to meat are asking, can plant-based meats be a healthier choice?
In collaboration with co-author Teri Lichtenstein, Accredited Practising Dietitian, this first-of-its-kind report compares the nutrition of plant-based meats available in AU/NZ to similar conventional meats, from sausages and burgers to crumbed chicken and more. The report also explores processing, ingredients, food safety and more.
Teri Lichtenstein said:
“I am thrilled to announce the launch today of the first of it’s kind report looking in to plant-based alternatives to conventional meat.”
“I had the privilege of co-authoring this report together with the team at Food Frontier. The study is a deep dive looking at plant-based alternatives to processed meats such as sausages and burgers, and addresses the question as to whether or not these are healthier alternatives. The findings are very positive.”
