Haven't posted for a long while. I watched the Game Changers on Netflix recently and I must admit it did get me thinking. I know all these programs have an agenda, but the science presented in this program made sense to me.
So, my wife and I have decided that we are going to reduce red meat in our diets. We do however use minced beef to make things like Bolognese, Cottage Pie, Chilli and Burgers. We tried Quorn in a Cottage Pie recently, and while the taste was OK, the texture was slimy.
We've now begun investigating the alternative 'fake beef' mince, like what you see used in the Impossible range, etc. The first thing I did was compare the nutrients of 100g of 'fake beef mince' and 100g normal lean beef mince. To my surprise the 'fake beef' is higher in calories, higher in fat, higher in saturated fat, higher in sugar and higher in salt/sodium. In my opinion, not looking like a healthier alternative.
Does anyone have any recommendations of a good plant-based mince?
