There are thousands of plant proteins in the world, and many of them have yet to be explored for use in the production of meat alternatives. I’m hopeful that we can begin to meet the demand for a protein-rich diet in a new way. We’re just at the beginning of enormous innovation in this space.

[Moving toward a vegetarian diet is] important in light of the environmental impacts of large-scale meat and dairy production, with livestock estimated to produce nearly 51% of the world’s greenhouse gases
The global population is on track to reach nine billion by 2050. What are all those people going to eat? With billions of people adding more animal protein to their diets — meat consumption is expected to double by 2050 — it seems clear that arable land for raising livestock won’t be able to keep up.
Food scientists are now creating meat alternatives that truly taste like — and have the same “mouth feel” — as their nature-made counterparts. All this innovation could be great news for people concerned about health problems related to over-consumption of fat, salt and cholesterol.
