Americans Are Gobbling Up Fake Meat And Milk Faster Than Ever

WEB Notes: This is news? Americans have been “gobbling up” fake meat from low-quality fast food chains for years.

Americans can’t seem to get enough imitation meat and milk these days.

Sales of substitutes to replace all types of animal products are up, and now comprise a $3.7 billion dollar market, according to data from Nielsen released Wednesday. The research was commissioned by The Good Food Institute, which represents the plant-based foods industry.

For example, imitation meat made from plants increased 23 percent in the year through Aug. 11 to $684 million. Silicon Valley’s Beyond Meat leads the pack with sales up 70 percent. About an eighth of all milk bought in stores isn’t from a cow, but rather from plants. Non-dairy yogurts, cheeses and ice cream are soaring, rising 40 percent and more.

By comparison, retail food sales generally is growing at 2 percent.

To be sure, soaring alternative proteins are still dwarfed by the $49 billion red meat and poultry market, and are unlikely to have any effect on traditional animal protein demand through the next decade, according to CoBank.

  1. So I’m curious cause I’ve been told by many of our family members that Almond milk is better, and cows milk was not made for us. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

    • if you make your own (or find other), where the almonds are organic, non-radiated, non pesticided, and the milk produced is not pasteurized or mixed with anything else, then that milk is good in moderation. But 100% grassfed, non-polluted by ways (no hormones/no gmo grasses, etc) other than the natural way of God for the animal, then raw milk is good for you (along with raw cheeses). The land of MILK and honey…….Can be cow, goat or whatever other animal that has cloven hoof and chews it’s cud.
