Plant-based protein option
VEGETARIANISM is one of the fastestgrowing lifestyle choices concurrent with the growing population of vegetarian worldwide (2).
Some of the popular reasons for this diet choice are respect for the environment and higher awareness towards animal welfare.
Some individuals also choose to reduce meat intake simply to stay healthy.
> Eat more plant protein to live longer A group of Harvard scientists who examined the health effects of different protein sources found that replacing just a small amount of processed meat for plant protein reduces the risk of early death.
Moreover, a higher intake of meat (animal protein) is also associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular death (1).
> Sustainability is about health as well as environmental impact
Among all complete protein sources, plant proteins such as soybeans, peas, and some nuts and seeds, are packed with wideranging benefits.
Other than keeping us healthier for longer, plant proteins are far more environmentally sustainable as the entire production line uses less farmland, water and energy compared to the meat industry
Consumers can help conserve energy, land and water by consuming more plant-based protein through cutting down on meat and dairy intake.
