Vegetarian Meat vs Plant-based Meat: Are They the Same?

Vegetarian soy meat

Vegetarian meats have been available for many years in Malaysia. You might be wondering how traditional vegetarian meats compare to the new plant-based meats that are already in supermarkets in the form of nuggets, burgers, and other foods.

 

In Malaysia, vegetarian meats have long existed and are typically produced from wheat gluten. These conventional vegetarian meats are available as minced meat, sausages, and nuggets.  

 

On the other hand, plant-based meats are contemporary meat-free foods created from peas, soy, mung beans, and rice proteins. They could also be made with proteins from whole foods like jackfruit and lion’s mane mushrooms.

 

Vegetarian meat and plant-based meats differ primarily in their ingredients, nutritional content, and flavour. Vegetarian meats are more processed than newer plant-based proteins, have lower nutritional content, and taste less like actual meat.

 

Malaysian plant-based meat is manufactured using components that have been extracted and taken from plants to produce a patty that resembles meat. The following are the characteristics of plant-based meat. 

 

  • Plant-based meats are produced using plants and are designed to look, feel, and taste like genuine meat.
  • Plant-based meats are lower in calories and saturated fat than vegetarian meat. Therefore, they are healthier than vegetarian meat.
  • Beet juice, vegetable protein extract, and coconut oil are components of plant-based meats.
 

 

A dietary comparison

Vegetarian meats, as aforementioned, are typically highly processed, have little nutritional value, and use a lot of salt and unhealthy additives. Even some have been discovered to contain substances sourced from animals.

 

Researchers working on production technology, biochemistry, and nutritional profiles are continually refining the more recent plant-based proteins, which have been developed via considerable research. 

 

Since they don’t contain cholesterol, have more fibre and less saturated fat than meat, they typically have superior nutritional value.

Plant-based proteins are also frequently linked to high protein levels and supplemental intake of vital minerals like zinc and B12. 

 

Some plant-based meats use healthy ingredients like coconut oil and beet juice to make them look and taste like meat.

 

Therefore, plant-based meats tend to be healthier than actual meat.

 

 

Diets with plant protein offer many advantages

Protein is an essential macronutrient for humans. It is essential as a nutrient for strong muscles, healthy hair, nails, and skin, as well as other biochemical activities. Your body is made up of about 20% protein. 

 

For every kilogram of body weight, you require roughly 0.8 grams of protein every day. 

 

When it comes to giving the body enough proteins, there is no distinction between proteins derived from animals and plants. The 22 amino acids are identical in both forms, although they are distributed differently. 

 

The nine essential amino acids that your body can’t synthesize on its own are also found in vegan-friendly foods like pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, quino, buckwheat, and soy.

 

You can get all the important amino acids from plant-based proteins without the meat’s high calorie, cholesterol, and saturated fat content. In light of this, plant-based meat may aid in weight loss. 

 

In fact, plant-based diets have been associated with lower levels of body weight, cholesterol, heart disease, and blood pressure. In comparison to non-vegetarians, vegetarians had a lower risk of death from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and stroke.

 

Takeaways

Traditional meats are more expensive because they are produced in large quantities in animal agriculture as opposed to plant-based meats, which are produced on a much smaller scale. 

 

Finally, vegetarian meat and plant-based meats are almost the same yet different in terms of nutritional value. Consuming plant-based meat tends to be healthier than consuming actual meat.
