Have you heard of meat that is not made of animal tissue? Yes, you heard it right! Meats that are made of plant-based ingredients are the new dietary trend. As technology is advancing, scientists have managed to recreate meat analogs with vegan ingredients. Not only that, they have cracked the flavor and texture too. For years, paneer, mushrooms, tofu, and soya were only the meat alternatives used by vegans. But now, new ‘vegan meats’ have been designed based on these plant proteins. Let’s see how?
We can’t deny the fact that meats are special and favorite food for many. It is difficult to exactly recreate the texture, flavor, and mouthwatering sensation meat gives. In recent times, many brands have come up with innovative ideas to produce meat analogs. The ingredients used here are mainly wheat gluten, soya chunks, legumes, peanut flour, yam flour, tempeh, tofu, and mushrooms. They are high in dietary protein and thus can be used as a major source of protein by vegans. These new veggie meats are made with a chunky texture to give the same sense of meat.
Moreover, vegan meats are favored by many non-vegetarians too. Most of them find it as their way through a sustainable diet. Also, it includes a variety of items like veg-chicken, veg-mutton, veg-prawns, and veg-fish. Thus, anyone who likes to experiment with foods and recipes can go for it.
