Meat substitutes


1.1 Definition and scope of the study

Meat substitutes or simulated meat products represent a food category of products whose taste or aesthetic characteristics mimic those of certain meats for human consumption and which are generally intended to replace the use of animal meat for consumption

But behind these names lies a multifaceted reality between substitutes of plant origin, synthetic substitutes derived from "bio-printing" processes or substitutes derived from various fungi or microalgae.

With increasingly strong vegan and organic trends, the desire to know what you have on your plate and to reduce meat consumption, meat substitutes are more popular than ever. Especially since their promise to reduce the carbon and environmental footprint of traditional animal production chains has never been so strong.

The sector is strongly marked by innovation and investment in R&D

Cleaner ingredients and high quality proteins are thus sought to satisfy an ever more demanding demand
