Gallery-10 plant-based alternatives from around the globe

The explosion of plant-based alternatives is occurring on a worldwide scale. Here is just a small look at some of the most exciting options out there.

Such impressive numbers are only possible because of the explosion of delicious, high-quality and innovative plant products that have in the past few years appeared on store shelves.

From products that mimic chicken to plant-based steaks, fish, “mince” and mutton, here is just a small look at plant-based proteins from around the world.
