Market Share by Source

Plant based alternative proteins are an alternative for animal meat, but the colour, texture and flavours are given such that they appear to be animal meat. The sources of protein in these plant-based products vary from potatoes to soy to mung beans. Sometimes alternative proteins are fermented using microbes or are cultured straight from the animal cells in a process termed as fermentation. Cellular agriculture is similar to fermentation except that it produces animal products from cell cultures instead of animals directly. All these factors play a major role in the growth of the North America alternative proteins market.
