The next generation plant-based meat analogues The high consumption of meat has detrimental consequences for the life on Planet Earth. Meat production puts a burden on the environment since it is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, high land and water use and inefficiency in resource use. Additionally, the system of meat production is forced to increase its efficiency, providing challenges in animal wellbeing, nutrition and food safety. Reducing meat consumption provides an attractive alternative. A route to reduce meat consumption is the development of plant-based meat analogues. Plant-based meat analogues offer a more sustainable alternative.
