Plant-based foods are appealing to not only vegans and vegetarians but to those who are on a high protein diet. Earth Nut burgers were created to give vegans another option to organic vegetable burgers. We saw the difficulty in trying to find an option that doesn’t have a lab-grown texture or color. Many vegetarians and vegans don’t want to eat anything that resembles meat. We also stand against genetically engineered products
Although lab-grown meat can be a good source of protein—Impossible has 19 grams of protein in 4 oz., and Beyond has 20 grams of protein in 4 oz.—they lack many of the other nutrients found in other veggie burgers, such as fiber and a host of vitamins and minerals. Earth Nut burgers which are made of simple clean organic ingredients, like peanuts, chickpeas, and spices have 23 grams of protein, 13 grams of fiber, and 30 percent of your daily iron intake.
Lab-grown meat substitution burgers don’t make sense from a climate, or health perspective. That’s why Earth Nut created their burger with peanuts. Peanuts play various roles in metabolism and health. They also provide unique bioactive components that act as antioxidants and have been shown to prevent disease. The protein in peanuts is plant-based, which has additional components promoting positive health benefits. Eating peanuts along with other legumes can have a big impact on your health, but also the health of the plant.
Peanuts are nature’s zero-waste plant and have the smallest carbon footprint of any nut. The Peanut Institute referenced, that half of Americans said it’s important that their food be produced sustainably. Growing peanuts have a less negative impact on the environment, as they replenish the soil with nitrogen – supplying up to 90% of their nitrogen.
According to a Nielsen report, plant-based diets are gaining prominence, but only those that don’t contain the traditional plant-based staples like tofu and brown rice. Food Dive posted that millennials are more than twice as likely to make choices based on products being eco-friendly, sustainable, and environmentally conscious. They are also using plant-based sources to meet their daily protein intake.
