Food Innovation: Fungi and Vegetables Potential as A Healthy and Sustainable Meat Substitute

One of the factor-driven global environmental concerns and health issues is excessive meat production and consumption. The popularity of meat substitutes for the benefit of sustainability and

Agri-Food Waste Streams Utilization for Development of More Sustainable Food Substitutes

Substitution of food out of alternative biomass sources is aimed to supply consumers with food products similar in nutrition and with lower environmental impact compared to conventional products. At

Meat alternatives: life cycle assessment of most known meat substitutes

PurposeFood production is among the highest human environmental impacting activities. Agriculture itself accounts for 70–85 % of the water footprint and 30 % of world greenhouse gas emissions (2.5

Life Cycle Assessment of Soy Protein Isolate

. Life cycle assessment (LCA) of food indicates that plant-based diets have lower impacts on the environment than those which include meat. However, such conclusions are based on a narrow

Dietary choices and greenhouse gas emissions – assessment of impact of vegetarian and organic options at national scale

TLDR
A strict vegan diet would nearly halve the agricultural GHG emissions, but reduction of the total emissions would be about 8%, which would require large-scale changes among the entire population.

Impact of consumers' diet choices on greenhouse gas emissions

This study explores the impacts on agricultural and total GHG emissions of Finnish consumption if the share of animal based food products was reduced and if the share of ecologically produced food

LCA of food products and production systems

This article is a summary of my dissertation in which LCA was applied to food products and production systems. The overall objectives were: (1) to learn more about the feasibility and limitations of

LCA of soybean meal

TLDR
The study clearly shows that consequential LCAs are quite easy to handle, even though it has been necessary to include production of palm oil, rapeseed and spring barley, as these production systems are affected by the soybean oil co-product.

Position of the American Dietetic Association: vegetarian diets.

Vegaphobia: derogatory discourses of veganism and the reproduction of speciesism in UK national newspapers.

TLDR
Dearth of derogatory discourses of veganism in UK national newspapers is interpreted as evidence of the cultural reproduction of speciesism, through which veganism is dissociated from its connection with debates concerning nonhuman animals' rights or liberation.

Food-miles and the relative climate impacts of food choices in the United States.

TLDR
It is suggested that dietary shift can be a more effective means of lowering an average household's food-related climate footprint than "buying local" and achieves more GHG reduction than buying all locally sourced food.
