‘Meat-free’ health warn­ing

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

MAR­KET­ING of meat al­ter­na­tives as ‘clean’ or ‘green’ may cause con­sumers to over­look the po­ten­tial health risks they pose, a re­port sug­gests.

Some meat-free burg­ers and sausages can be highly pro­cessed and con­tain sim­i­lar amounts of calo­ries and sat­u­rated fat as their meat equiv­a­lents, said the Nuffield Coun­cil on Bioethics. The in­de­pen­dent body is call­ing for more re­search into the long-term im­pli­ca­tions of plant-based meat al­ter­na­tives.
