Have you listened to our two-part episode on alt proteins and everything in between?
In life, we always want to make the best choices, but when the best is not readily available, next thing that comes to mind is to look for ALTERNATIVES, and when we talk about alternatives, food is not an exemption so as we answer the question “How do we feed billions of people today and in the future?” we are also tasked to explore various alternatives in terms of our food production and food choices that will help us build a resilient and sustainable future.
In relation to that, this two-part episode brings you an insightful conversation with Stephen Co, regarding alternative sources of protein, which are often plant-based and are seen to be a good substitute for meat that can make one’s diet healthier and our planet more sustainable.
The first part talks about the background of our guest and his food entrepreneurship ventures particularly focused on alt protein and plant-based meats, eventually starting up his company – Worth The Health (WTH), and Umani Foods. He shares with us the usual plant sources and ingredients of their products, the market of these products in the Philippines and the most important things that consumers must know about alt proteins as well as common misconceptions that hinder acceptability of these types of foods.
