Liang Jiajun, a former pilot in Beijing, cringed at the idea of faux meat.

“The first thought that crossed my mind is that they are filled with additives, coloring and?亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊

flavoring,” she said. “Not even the benefit of reducing cholesterol levels appeals to me.”

Liu Xinyi, 27, said she ordered a veggie burger with a pl?亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊

ant-based pork patty once when traveling in Texas in the United States.

?亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊女神会所”I was drawn to this item on the menu due to its lower calories. It contained about 400 calories, compared with about 900 calori

es for a regular burger.” she said. “But I won’t try it again. I could tell it was fake meat.”?亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊

Even her friends with vegetarian dietary habits rarely buy fake meat products.

“It appears to me that they don’t bother to cheat their palates with thes

e meat alternatives. They just eat a ton of salad to keep up their energy,” Liu said.

Despite doubts and complaints, research efforts into better-tasting?亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊

meat alternatives are intensifying, and the sector has attracted major investments.

?亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊Zhou, the professor, said faux meat is now increasingly consid

ered a significant step toward helping feed a swelling population and curtailing climate change.?亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊女神会所

Vegetable-based meat is more expensive than real meat in some We

stern countries. But it is likely that the price gap will soon be closed, according to an exper?亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊

t in biodiversity protection and green development who declined to be named for this story.

In the Chinese market, fake meat products are expected to first emerge as high-en

?亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊d, healthy and fashionable alternatives to real meat, first targeting more affluent consumers.

“In the future, maybe more attention will be paid

to their positive effects on environment,” the biodiversity expert said.?亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊
