【Is vegetarian meat really healthier?】

Nowadays, more and more people pay attention to their health and replace animal meat with vegetarian meat. Vegetarian meat is mainly processed and seasoned from soybean protein, brown rice protein, potato starch, etc. Some vegetarian meats have beet juice or heme from legumes added to make them look more like real meat, and oils like sunflower and coconut oil to make them taste more authentic. Some brands of vegetarian meat are even higher in minerals such as iron, zinc, and calcium than real meat after adding additives and nutrients.

In the diagram above, we can see that the calories and protein of the vegetarian patties are similar to that of beef burger patties. But when compared to beef burgers, vegetarian burgers contain less fat with no cholesterol at all, but dietary fibre, which is not found in beef burgers, making them more healthy. However, vegetarian meats are generally added with sodium for seasoning, so it is easy to over-absorb sodium if you eat a lot.

Whether vegetarian meat is healthier than real meat depends on many factors, such as cooking method and serving size. We suggest that after eating vegetarian meat, nutrients that are lacking or less in content in vegetarian meat can be supplemented, including vitamins C, D and iron. Under the premise of consuming an appropriate amount, vegetarian meat may become a healthy food to replace authentic meat.
