The market for plant-based meat alternatives is booming as a result of their perceived, naturally healthy and sustainable appeal or just because we want to try something new. Consumers increasingly search for meat alternatives alongside traditional meat products.
Crafting a winning recipe for various plant-based meat products is complex when it comes to taste, texture, mouthfeel and nutritional value. Moreover, for health-conscious consumers who want to include plant-based meat alternatives as part of a healthy and nutritious diet, the fact that unfortified meat alternatives are typically lower in nutritional value and higher in sodium content than traditional meat could prove a stumbling block.
