American actor, Laurence Fishburne, is praised for his diverse performances throughout the ages. While he is known for his acting and directing skills, the Hollywood star is bestowing his talents as host to the educational show “Behind the Scenes” with Laurence Fishburne. The program features numerous industry experts as they discuss countless issues affecting the world at large. A pending episode coming to the show will cover the innovations in the meat-alternative movement.
In recent years plant-based proteins are growing in high demand, which is partially a result of the current climate crisis. Livestock greenhouse gas emissions are around a whopping 15%. To reduce this number, many industry professionals are looking to plant-based meat alternatives as a solution.
While meat-less proteins may seem like a contemporary concept, they are not new to the public. Various veggie burgers have been around since the 1980s. Modern meat-less products differ from meat alternatives of the past. Today’s meat alternatives are formulated to taste like real meat to market towards meat-consuming customers. Some of the newer meat-less options on the market not only strongly resemble beef in flavor but also in appearance. These more unique varieties bleed while cooking due to a type of yeast. Some people have reported sensitivities to the antibiotics and growth hormones given to livestock. The plant-based meats do not have this problem. Plant-based meat also avoids the cancer risks associated with red meat and offers the same level of nutrition in terms of the calorie content and macronutrient profile. “Behind The Scenes” with Laurence Fishburne will further explore these advancements in the meat alternative industry and how they are impacting the world.
“Behind The Scenes” with Laurence Fishburne is a high-quality educational program that has received several awards for its endeavors.
