Is This The End Of Fake Meat?

Plant-based foods like plant meats, cheeses and milks have long been referred to as ‘fake’ versions of the ‘real’ foods. ‘Fake meat’ has become the most common use of this word among the plant-based community and we want to put an end to it.

No, we’re not talking about putting an end to plant-based foods! We want the world to stop referring to plant-based products as ‘fake’ food. Using this terminology is misleading and fools us into thinking that these foods are not real food and not as good as the ‘real’ or ‘original’ versions. In reality, since plant-based food is healthier, cheaper and more sustainable, you could argue that it is actually more ‘real’ than animal-based foods. And, let’s be honest, some of the most recent plant-based products are actually even better than the ‘originals’!

Perhaps we need to come up with a new word? Maybe Eco Foods? Or “OMG have you tried that new Sustaina-Meat?” Or “I just bought that new Next-Gen cheese and it was amazing!”

Plant-based foods are our future. They are the answer to our food system stability, our global health and our environmental sustainability.

By shifting our terminology away from ‘fake’ food, we start to change the way the world thinks about plant-based food. Because plant-based foods aren’t second best to animal-based foods, and are, in many ways, superior.
