I recently teamed up with Shaun Ward of My Nutrition Science to write articles on various hot button nutrition topics, starting with whether or not plant-based meat alternatives are healthy. In this particular article, I cover the common concerns regarding plant-based meats and highlight the current state of the scientific evidence on these products.
Topics that are covered in this article include:
- The growing trend toward plant-based foods and dietary patterns.
- The processed nature of plant-based meat alternatives.
- How plant-based meats stack up to traditional meat with regard to overall nutrition content.
- How Beyond Meat products affect cardiovascular disease risk factors compared to organic meat products.
- And more!
I hope you enjoy the article and learn something from it!
