In a world where we are faced with an overabundance of information, of which some is accurate and some not, this show responds to the need for evidence-based, concise, and trusted information. Here you will find a moderated discussion between three experts addressing a relevant, trending, or controversial topic which stimulates critical thinking across the food and nutrition discourse. The Disruptive Science Show provides a space for engaging and challenging conversations among expert stakeholders who are encouraged to push the status quo.
What do we really know about alternative protein products’ nutritional value? At Sight and Life, we value the importance of going beyond the persuasive environmental and health claims currently associated with such products and strive to understand the science and nutritional benefits of this emerging field. This first episode of our series on “Plant-based meat” offers a deep dive into some of the most burning questions we have on the nutritional value, health impacts, and technology of these new products.
