Max Armstrong shares study results with a closer look at plant-based meat alternatives

Max Armstrong takes on the plant-based meat alternatives including a look at a Harvard Department of Environmental Health study showing these meat substitutes may have nutrition issues. The study found that while the new “meats” are lower in total fat and saturated fat, they’re higher in sodium. The authors also noted its necessary to consider how these products are consumed – a fast food setting.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
