In this memorandum i will be focusing on three main concerns about plant based meat. What are the disadvantages of eating plant based meat? What are the advantages of eating plant based meat? What would happen if everyone starts eating plant based meat?
Plant Based Meat is what it sounds like. It is made up of plants, soy, or wheat. It's not real meat. It's “meat” for the vegetarian. Plant based meat diets can also be vegan. Veganism is the same as being vegetarian. Vegans usually eat plant based meat. The “ Hot Dog” they are going to eat is not the same as our hot dog. The hot dog will be a veggie dog that would be genetically produced to imitate the real hot dog. It can be made up of beans, wheat, even plants. There are many different companies that are now starting to produce vegan or plant based meats. Some of the top companies right now are Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods. Other companies like Tyson Foods are starting to participate in this new demand and will be launching a company called “ Raised & Rooted.”
