Going Meatless?

Meat isn’t automatically on the menu these days, according to the Lansing State Journal. A Michigan State University Food Literacy and Engagement poll found that approximately 41% of Americans say they’re likely to buy artificially produced forms of meat that look and taste the same. This is up from 33% in 2018.

The survey looked at people’s understanding of the relationship between food and climate change. One finding: Fewer than 50% of people surveyed realized that eating plant-based foods can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions 

Meatless meat was originally made from beans, soy, cauliflower, and the like. Newer versions feature plant-like “meat” designed to resemble traditional meat.

But Americans are becoming more open to eating meat-like products made from other sources, like insects. One 2019 poll found that 25% of Americans are willing to try that.

Meat grown from cells in labs are a potential future option, though none are commercially available in the U.S. right now. Still, 35% of Americans say they’re likely to buy some when it comes out.
