2021 Will Be The Year That Plant-Based Foods Will Finally Go Mainstream

  • According to a recent report by consultancy firm, AT Kearney, the global vegan food market was valued at $14.2 billion in 2018, and is expected to reach $31.4 billion by 2026.
  • And, as interest and sales grow, customers are becoming more discerning, health conscious, and are scrutinizing the calories and nutritional value of meat-free products as closely as they would when buying meat.

Veganuary 2021 comes at the end of a spectacular twelve months for veganism in the US.  Vegan food sections have become fixtures of every grocery store –  something that was unthinkable, even two years ago. Prior to the pandemic, the US was already one of the fastest growing vegan markets in the world: that trend has only accelerated since. 

A survey, conducted earlier this year by Gallup, found that 77% of Americans had reduced their meat consumption in the past twelve months. The subsequent outbreak and change wrought by Covid-19 has intensified interest still further – to the point that almost six in ten Americans now report that they are ‘transitioning to a more flexitarian, or semi-vegetarian, diet”. 

The theories on why Covid is accelerating demand for plant-based options are varied; we believe it’s because  lockdown has given us all time to reflect on our food choices and their socio environmental impact, has brought fitness and well-being into sharp focus, and has given more time for cooking at home – where we can more easily control what we eat.  The health and environmental implications of eating meat were already a concern for many.  The pandemic has reminded us that viruses can leap across species barriers – bringing home the long-term risks of meat.

For retailers and vegan food suppliers, it’s becoming a crowded but profitable market. According to a recent report by consultancy firm, AT Kearney, the global vegan food market was valued at $14.2 billion in 2018, and is expected to reach $31.4 billion by 2026. And, as interest and sales grow, customers are becoming more discerning, health conscious, and are scrutinizing the calories and nutritional value of meat-free products as closely as they would when buying meat. 

For plant-based meats, customers expect products to closely replicate the taste and texture of conventional meat (a common complaint amongst those who have tried to switch).  In 2021, Heura will be  introducing the first plant-based meat burger made with extra virgin olive oil which has the fatty texture of meat but 84% less saturated fat than the first generation of plant-based products, achieved by creating a ‘fat analogue’ which resembles and preserves the juiciness of meat while reducing the amount of fat from oils. 

There is a growing bounty of options for consumers on the shelves. As has happened with plant-based milk, we will also see more diversity on plant-based meat sources to replace those with animal protein.  Today, plant-based products are predominantly soy-based and pea-based, but the next generation could be made from lentils, chickpeas and sunflower seeds.

Where we buy this food will change, too.  In the same way that  Pret a Manger introduced veggie-only sandwich shops, I predict that the fast food giants will open dedicated ‘meat alternative’ restaurants.

Grocery stores will change, as well.  They won’t have a separate vegan aisle – they’ll put plant-based products alongside meat and perhaps start multi-buy offers (currently rarer on plant-based food), which will make them more of an attractive option for customers to try. 

So, as we move in a new, and hopefully less turbulent year, it’s clear that plant-based products are becoming mainstream. The recent announcement by McDonald’s, the world’s biggest burger chain, that it is to launch its first plant-based burger, exemplifies this. When we look back at 2020, it may seem like a crucial turning point:  the moment when plant-based products went from “alternative” to “successor” foods.

‘Ensure that your diet is 90% to 100% plant-based’: 9 food rules from the world’s longest-living people

By: Dan Buettner, Contributor

More than 15 years ago, I set out to reverse-engineer a formula for longevity. Working with renowned doctors and nutritionists, I identified several Blue Zones: Places around the world where people live the longest.

Along the way, I met experts who helped me understand why the foods people ate led to longer lives. We also distilled 150 dietary surveys of centenarians, or those who live to 100 or longer, to reveal the secrets of a strong longevity regimen.

These nine simple guidelines reflect what foods (and how of much of it) Blue Zone residents eat to stay healthy:

1. Ensure that your diet is 90% to 100% plant-based.

Centenarians eat an impressive variety of garden vegetables and leafy greens (especially spinach, kale, beet and turnip tops, chard and collards) when they are in season.

During the off-season, they pickle or dry the surplus. Beans, greens, sweet potatoes, whole grains, fruits, nuts and seeds dominate Blue Zone meals all year long.

Olive oil is also a staple. Evidence shows that olive oil consumption increases good cholesterol and lowers bad cholesterol. In the Greek island Ikaria, for example, we found that for middle-aged people, about six tablespoons of olive oil daily seemed to cut the risk of premature mortality by 50%.

2. Retreat from meat.

On average, Blue Zone residents eat about two ounces or less of meat about five times per month (usually as a celebratory food, a small side, or as a way to flavor dishes).

One 12-year study, which followed a community of 96,000 Americans in Loma Linda — a Blue Zone region in California — determined that people who lived the longest were vegans or pesco-vegetarians who ate a small amount of fish.

Vegetarians in Loma Linda, according to the researchers, were more likely to outlive their meat-eating counterparts by as many as eight years.

Okinawans in Japan probably offer the best meat substitute: Extra-firm tofu, which is high in protein and cancer-fighting phytoestrogens.

3. Go easy on fish.

In most Blue Zones, people ate small amounts of fish, fewer than three ounces up to three times weekly.

Usually, the fish being eaten are small, relatively inexpensive varieties like sardines, anchovies and cod —species in the middle of the food chain that are not exposed to the high levels of mercury or other chemicals that pollute our gourmet fish supply today.

Again, fish is not a necessary part of a longevity diet, but if you must eat it, elect varieties that are common and not threatened by overfishing.

4. Eat a daily dose of beans.

Beans reign supreme in Blue Zones and are the cornerstone of every longevity diet in the world: Black beans in Nicoya; lentils, garbanzo and white beans in the Mediterranean; and soybeans in Okinawa.

Most centenarians eat at least four times as many beans as Americans do on average — at least a half cup per day. And so should you. Why? Beans are packed with more nutrients per gram than any other food on Earth.

On average, they are made up of 21% protein, 77% complex carbohydrates, and only a few percent fat. Because they are fiber-rich and satisfying, they’ll likely help to push less healthy foods out of your diet.

5. Slash sugar.

Blue Zone communities eat sugar intentionally, not by habit or accident.

They consume about the same amount of naturally occurring sugars as North Americans do, but only about a fifth as much added sugar — no more than seven teaspoons a day.

Between 1970 and 2000, the amount of added sugar in the American food supply rose by 25% (about 22 teaspoons of added sugar per day) — generally, the result of the insidious, hidden sugars mixed into soda, yogurt and sauces.

If you must eat sweets, save cookies, candy and bakery items for special occasions (ideally as part of a meal). Limit sugar added to coffee, tea or other foods to no more than four teaspoons per day.

Skip any product that lists sugar among its first five ingredients.

6. Snack on nuts.

Eat two handfuls of nuts per day.

A handful weighs about two ounces, the average amount that Blue Zone centenarians consume: Almonds in Ikaria and Sardinia, pistachios in Nicoya, and all varieties of nuts with the Adventists in Loma Linda.

A study on food and longevity found that nut eaters outlive non-nut eaters by an average of two to three years. So try to snack on a couple handfuls of almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, walnuts, or peanuts every day.

7. Sour on bread.

If you can, strive to eat only sourdough or 100% whole wheat bread.

Most commercially available breads start with bleached white flour, which metabolizes quickly into sugar and spikes insulin levels.

But bread in Blue Zones is either whole grain or sourdough. In Ikaria and Sardinia, breads are made from a variety of whole grains such as wheat, rye or barley, each of which offers a wide spectrum of nutrients.

Whole grains have higher levels of fiber than most commonly used bleached flours. Some traditional Blue Zone breads are made with naturally occurring bacteria called lactobacilli, which “digest” the starches and glutens while making the bread rise.

The process also creates an acid — the “sour” in sourdough. The result is bread with less gluten than breads labeled “gluten-free,” with a longer shelf life and a pleasantly sour taste that most people like.

8. Drink mostly water.

If possible, strive to avoid soft drinks, including diet soda. With very few exceptions, people in Blue Zones drink only coffee, tea, water and wine.

(Soft drinks, which account for about half of Americans’ sugar intake, were unknown to most Blue Zone centenarians until recently.)

Here’s why:

  • Water: Adventists recommend seven glasses of water daily. They point to studies showing that being hydrated facilitates blood flow and lessens the chance of a blood clot.
  • Coffee: Sardinians, Ikarians, and Nicoyans all drink coffee. Research associates coffee with lower rates of dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
  • Tea: Okinawans prefer green varieties, which have been shown to lower the risk of heart disease and several cancers. Ikarians drink brews of rosemary, wild sage and dandelion — all herbs known to have anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Red Wine: People who drink — in moderation — tend to outlive those who don’t. (This doesn’t mean you should start drinking if you don’t drink now.) People in most Blue Zones drink one to three small glasses of red wine per day, often with a meal and with friends.

9. Go whole.

We found that most centenarians traditionally eat whole foods.

These are foods made from single ingredient — raw, cooked, ground or fermented — and are not highly processed. They eat raw fruits and vegetables; they grind whole grains themselves and then cook them slowly.

They also use fermentation — an ancient way to make nutrients bioavailable — in the tofu, sourdough bread, wine and pickled vegetables they eat.

And they rarely ingest artificial preservatives. Blue zones dishes typically contain a half dozen or so ingredients, simply blended together.

Burger King to launch 100% vegan burger for Veganuary in the UK

Burger King is launching a new vegan burger in the UK next week (11th January).

The new vegan burger comes a year after the chain released its plant-based Rebel Whopper, which was unsuitable for vegans because of it being cooked on the same grill as meat.

However, this time the US fast-food giant will sell a 100% vegan bean burger, which includes two signature veggie patties on a toasted sesame bun, topped with fresh-cut lettuce, juicy tomatoes, ketchup, and vegan mayo.

The burger is said to cost around £4.59 on its own, or £5.59 with a drink.

The Rebel Whopper

Last year, the chain launched a Rebel Whopper for Veganuary, angering many vegans because it was grilled on the same surface as the meat version.

It however said at the time that the burger was aimed at ‘flexitarians’.

Commenting on the plant-based Whopper, Toni Vernelli, international head of marketing at Veganuary, said: “For all of the important issues that Veganuary – and most vegans – are trying to address through their food choices it makes absolutely no difference whether the plant-based patty is cooked separately or on the same grill as the meat.

“What does make a big difference to animals and the planet is when non-vegans choose a plant-based menu option, enjoy it and then order it again.

“And that’s exactly who Burger King’s plant-based Whopper is aimed at, flexitarians who want to reduce their meat consumption for health or environmental reasons, or are considering going vegan.”

Veganuary launches

Burger King has joined a slew of retailers, restaurants, and fast-food chains that have launched new products for Veganaury this year.

Wagamama is moving ahead with a new vegan-themed menu for Veganuary amid its pledge to make 50% of its menu meat-free by the end of 2021.

The new menu offers plant-based versions of cult favourite dishes; Chilli Squid, sticky ribs, Firecracker Curry, and Grilled Duck Donburi, which the company hopes will entice even their ‘most set-in-their-ways meat-eating fans’.

Pret A Manger is adding nine new vegan items including breakfast items and wraps to its January menu, which will be launched at both Pret and Veggie Pret outlets nationwide.

Sandwich chain Subway has launched the vegan T.L.C. (Tastes Like Chicken) Sub and Vegan Double Choc Cookie, both of which are available to order in Subway stores just in time for Veganuary.
