All About Meat Analogues
A food industry term for a meat-like substance made from vegetarian ingredients. More common terms are plant-based meat, vegan meat, meat substitute, meat alternative, imitation meat, or vegetarian meat.
Because of their similarity to meats, they are frequently used in dishes and food practices similar to meat. The target market for meat analogues includes vegetarians, vegans, non-vegetarians seeking to reduce their meat consumption, and people following religious dietary laws.
Why Asenzya® joined the party
Seeing an influx of flexitarians (In its simplest definition, the flexitarian diet is a combination of the words “flexible” and “vegetarian.” It’s a cross between full vegan and vegetarian with the ability to enjoy animal products every so often.) and the adapted vegetarian/vegan dietary accommodations by Fast-Casual restaurants, the crowd for such a protein has substantially grown within the last 5 years.
Because now more than ever, consumers are seeking an all-natural protein, meat replacement. Asenzya® designed its meat analogue P-Squared®(P2) with a pea or soy protein base. P2 is a great option with its ease of prep and product longevity. It’s as easy as open, rehydrate, mix and create. The customization is completely up to you!
