Plant-based foods are often considered more sustainable than those derived from animals. This is because their production generally generates lower greenhouse gas emissions than meat equivalents, and they generally require less land and other natural resources. To be considered a successful way to improve the sustainability of the food system, these plant-based foods need to be culturally acceptable and tasty.
