There are countless plant-based meats available in stores and restaurants now. From classic meatless brands like Gardein, Quorn, and Morningstar Farms to newer meaty mainstream brands like Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods.Unlike meat, dairy, and eggs, plant-based foods are proven to be better for preventing diseases like type 2 diabetes, alleviating arthritis, healthier gut and digestion, better cholesterol levels, improved cognition, and more. Studies have proven that eating plant-based foods is much healthier than consuming animal products, but consumers still have an important concern: are plant-based meat alternatives really that much healthier, or healthy at all?

Well one startup company is aiming to relieve consumers of that worry. Daring Foods has created a plant-based chicken alternative that they claim is much healthier than meatandother meat replacements. It is made with five non-genetically modified ingredients water, soy, sunflower oil, salt and natural flavoring (a mix of paprika, pepper, ginger, nutmeg, mace, cardamom).

Daring Foods co-founder and CEO Ross Mackay told TechCrunch: Theres a big need for plant-based food thats actually healthy. The chicken is currently being sold in the United Kingdom as of this year, but after a $10 million investment from Rastelli Foods Group, a major U.S. food company, they plan to launch in the U.S. in February!

They will sell directly to consumers through their website, and to restaurants and retailers. Although the CEO Mackay is vegan, the consumers he hopes to reach are meat eaters who are looking to incorporate plant-based foods or transition to plant-based diets. He told Anthony Ha of TechCrunch that he is hoping to create what he calls a second generation of plant-based meat products healthier than the first, and therefore a bigger part of everyday diets.

Reducing your meat intake and eating more plant-based foods is known to help with chronic inflammation, heart health, mental wellbeing, fitness goals, nutritional needs, allergies, gut health and more! Dairy consumption also has been linked many health problems, including acne, hormonal imbalance, cancer, prostate cancer and has many side effects.
