New Study Finds Health Benefits of Plant-Based Meats
August 11, 2020
The findings from a clinical study using Beyond Meat’s plant-based products were published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
In the study conducted at Stanford University, researchers evaluated the impact of replacing animal-based meat with plant-based meat over an 8-week period on cholesterol levels (including LDL), heart disease risk factors including TMAO levels, and body weight, and found improvement in key health metrics when participants replaced animal-based meat with plant-based meat.
The results provide yet another data point in a growing field of research about how plant-based meat can help people live healthier lives, and Beyond Meat is committed to supporting further academic and scientific study into the impacts of plant-based meats on health.
