With the launch of plant-based meat substitute products in Singapore like Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat, vegan restaurants and faux meat dishes are fast becoming a trend here. As Singaporeans become more health- and environmentally-conscious, it’s only natural that we start seeing more restaurants serving meat substitutes.
And we’re not talking about the starchy mock meats you get from vegetarian stalls. In fact, you probably won’t even be able to tell the difference between the foods in this list and genuine meat dishes, thanks to advancements in food science and genetic engineering.
In fact, meat alternatives on the market these days may even taste as good as the real deal!
Impossible Foods, which produces plant-based alternative meats and launched in Singapore earlier this year, claims to have engineered the “meaty” taste present in actual meat products, which actually comes from “heme”, a molecule found in all living organisms. This soy-based meat doesn’t contain gluten, animal hormones or antibiotics. It’s also said to have zero mg cholesterol, 14 grams of total fat and 240 calories in a quarter-pound patty. Impressive!
