Summary

Plant-based meat? Absolutely!

Beyond Meat has higher protein density, comparable caloric content, and a significantly reduced overall impact on the environment than that of traditional meat.

This combination of a unique cooking methodology with plant-based ingredients results in meat that can be used to cook in the same way that animal meat can, without using a single animal-based product.

Beyond Meat is a health-smart product and was also created for the unique purpose, to help consumers be part of the solution to the mistreatment of animals.

One notable ingredient that contributes to the uniqueness of Beyond Meat is the addition of natural flavorings. The inclusion of these plant-based flavorings gives Beyond Meat that distinct umami flavor, which imparts an additional level of savoriness.

Beyond Meat tastes just like animal-based meat; only it is better for you!

It is not just the ingredients and the cooking process that really sets Beyond Meat apart from the rest.

Interesting Information

I have many friends that eat non-meat products, however I hadn't heard of Beyond Meat before. The narration was very clear and I certainly learnt about the product and why the product was created in the first instance. This is an interesting audiobook to listen too, as Beyond Meat is starting to appear in supermarkets in the UK.

Healthy and animals friendly

I know factory farming contributes heavily to environmental problems all over the world. Only if we don't eat that many meats can we solve these problems! So this brand new idea from this audiobook is interesting to me! I hope it will become a trend in the future and people won't harm animals and the environment badly to feed themselves. Definitely recommend it!

Food For Thought

Can you imagine eating vegan meat that tastes just like meat and favouring the environment at the same time at well as transforming your own health?
It has become a very popular notion today and I think we will actually see more people making the jump to plant-based food.
Therefore this book has collated some of the most interesting information about this trailblazing social phenomenon.
Read it today!

A fantastic Insight

The fact is I would go veggie if I could but very often the choice is just not there. This book both supports and challenges this view and I loved every minute of it. I found myself nodding but also challenged as well. It is backed up by real facts and makes a refreshing change. Well worth a listen and great narration.

Vegetarian lifestyle made easy

Apart from the ethical and environmental benefits of cutting meat from your diet, a well-planned vegetarian diet may also reduce your risk of chronic disease, support weight loss and improve the quality of your diet. After hearing this proven from Cyrus Cairns’ book, I feel prepared to change my lifestyle. Highly recommended book if you want to understand how meat destroys you body and the environment.

Great listen

The author did an awesome job in putting the research into this audiobook. I wasn’t too familiar with beyond meat prior to listening to this audiobook. It really introduced me to what beyond meat was, how it is made and how it has been growing significantly over the last few years. Highly informative and definitely recommend!

Plant based food is the future.

The book is filled with valuable information. Plant based food has grown to be a social phenomenon. McDonald’s has Beyond Meat, and Burger King has Impossible Foods. Meat alternatives are now a common purchase for US consumers. This lifestyle is for sure a combination of seeking good health and appreciating the lives of other mammals. According to survey, It can help prevent chronic conditions, including cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. A whole new series of plant-based foods has captured the interest and tastebuds of consumers. The result of intensive food engineering and culinary expertise, these foods are making headlines. This book is highly recommended.

Informative and insightful

As someone who enjoys variety of food and is interested in healthy eating, this book hits a lot of check marks. I have heard of Beyond Meat several times and I have even considered buying its stock. Though I have not tried Beyond Meat, I have tried other type of imitation meat like the Impossible Burger. This book gives me a lot of insights into the world of meat alternatives with a focus on Beyond Meat. I'm exciting to see what would become of Beyond Meat in the next few years.

Really great information

Very interesting to learn about Beyond Meat. I am vegetarian and it used to be quite difficult to have your favourite foods but now there are so many substitutes that it is very easy to be a vegetarian. There is still good quality and poor quality vegetarian food, this book really digs into the Beyond Meat brand. I would have liked some more comparisons but overall I thought this was great. and I learned a lot about something I eat multiple times a month (and sometimes a week). Other than the flavour of Beyond Meat I really like that it BBQs like a regular burger so I can stand at the grill and not be embarrassed with some crappy little veggie patty. I highly recommend Beyond Meat and this book!

Interesting listen!

Author was very knowledgeable on the subject and you could tell they have both done their research and been practicing eating Beyond Meat for quite some time. A lot of helpful information and definitely some good ideas, tips to try and things to be on the look out for both at restaurants and the grocery store.

Everything I needed to know

Having been on the fence regarding Beyond Meat, I listened to this audiobook with great interest. What I enjoyed most is hearing the benefits not only for my health but agriculturally as well. The list of ingredients in Beyond Meat sound delicious. This book has urged me to give it a try. The book was the push I needed to add some of the products to my grocery list. A very comprehensive and well-written book.

Informative Resource on Beyond Meat

I came across this audiobook “The Next Generation of Meat: The Growing Popularity of Beyond Meat in North America and Other Parts of the World“, which is great because I was open to learning more about plant-based meat. I have started with plant-based meat and now having this resource was timely. The topic on the future of Beyond Meat is one that caught my interest in particular.

Excellent resource

This book intrigued me for several reasons, and as I get older, I'm finding that my body is starting to react differently to food I've eaten for years. For example, I may get stomach cramps or feel bloated if I eat burgers. I've tried gardenburgers and the impossible burger while eating out and was surprised by how good it was. This audiobook is like that. It not only educates, but you feel good after applying the lessons. Excellent book and is highly recommended.

Fascinating!

With all the hype around this, I needed to know more. Is this something I should switch to, and why? The answers are in this book. What a great listen. I would recommend this to anyone like me that is thinking of making the switch or anyone that already has! Thank you for curing my curiosity!
