Highly nutritious meat substitutes on the market cannot be absorbed by the human body, study flags

https://m.nutritioninsight.com/news/highly-nutritious-meat-substitutes-on-the-market-cannot-be-absorbed-by-the-human-body-study-flags.html
>The study, published in Nutrients, analyzed 44 meat substitutes sold in Swedish supermarkets, mainly made of onions and pea proteins. It also included fermented onions products of tempeh and mycoproteins – fungi.

>“All products were high in iron and zinc content but low in bioavailability (except the tempeh and mycoprotein-based products). This means that the minerals pass through the gastrointestinal tract without being absorbed,”

>“Meat and fish also contain what is called ‘the meat factor’ – muscle tissues or amino acids – which stimulate the absorption of nonheme iron in the whole meal. Thus there are two reasons for animal protein being superior for iron absorption. Also, zinc absorption is stimulated by animal protein.”

      The amount of crops needed is miniscule compared to how much animal feed needs to be grown for a similar amount of meat so in that regard it doesn't come close to the impact of meat.

          That's very far from all meat. Most farmland is used to grow animal feed.

          literally has no nutritional value though? It does not even have a reason to exist. I'm sorry but so as long as humans need B12 and certain micros like amino acids and hemes, we will need to keep consuming actual real meat.
          It's just the way it is.

          And no you are pulling that shit out of your ass. Onions is literally one of the worst crops right now on Earth and literally sterilizes the soil it's grown on. It's on par with palm oil as to how fucking bad it is, environmental wise. The only reason it's so popular is because of how cheap it is to grow. Not how good it is.
          And the problem is entirely with intensive agro-industrial farming. If people were entitled to their own acreage, and had their own livestock, just cutting down the entire supply chain down will completely neutralize the livestock carbon footprint. And don't even get me started on how methane is not even the problem, but actually nitrogen and nitrous oxides derived from industrial processes and chemical plants, which has nothing to do with animals.

          It's simple, animals are a product of nature and will always be 100% more preferable to consume, provided they have not been ''genetically modified'' by synthetic means (other than breeding organically), than whatever chemical/synthetic lab-made Frankenstein shit these grifters will produce.

                All those countless factory farms filled with thousands of animals each require much more food than can be gotten from grazing.
                Currently, most farmland is growing the most productive crops to feed all that. An acre used as a pasture doesn't produce nearly as much calories for a cow as an acre of söybeans or corn does.

The plains support more rumanants than we need and they do so in a way that doesn't destroy the planet. In eurasia they have the steppes.

                Correct. And beautifully the cow shit attracts maggots which are free food for chickens that also aren't a poison. Completely unmanaged there were 30 million bison just wild. Bison weigh twice as much as cattle and we have 90 million currently. Meaning without even being touched they supported 2/3rds of the current meat available. Imagine how much it would support with stewardship. Bonus is the topsoil would actually heal, the natural biome would be restored, the meat would be healthier, and we wouldn't be spraying as much fucking pesticides everywhere. You are a fucking retard. Imagine taking the side of bayer-monsanto.

                This. The US is an especially bad offender at this with corn grown for ethanol. the whole thing is a tax scam.
                And lets not forget about soil depletion. Grazing animals can heal the soil.
                There's also a lot of land that is not fit for cultivation but that could sustain grazers.

                Yes I know that the trash from crops grown from humans is used for animal feed but that's not at all the vast majority of animal feed.

                That's only pigs and chickens since they cannot digest cellulose, but ruminants can.
                Cows spend most of their life outside grazing. and when they're inside they're eating ruffage. No cow is eating corn or barley or basedbean.
                So if it concerns you don't eat chicken or pigs. ruminants are superior anyway.

        I'm so tired of hearing this bullshit. Vegans keep citing land used for growing crops for human consumption as being solely for animal feed. The vast majority of "crops" fed to animals are in the form of ruffage. Ruffage are the parts of the plant inedible to humans which would only decompose in a landfill if not otherwise eaten by humans. All of the crops you eat generate ruffage and their decomposition generates "greenhouse gases" which are not counted by vegan and climate propogandists. Counting this as land used for animal feed drastically inflates the actual land necessary for animal rearing and is disingenuous in the extreme.

        Stop the bullshit.

          you're completely right in your point
          whenever we process grains there is chaff leftover that is no good for us but which can be freely fed to animals and if it wasn't would probably just become compost

          but the argument isn't even made in good faith - vegans are basically religious and no logical argument will snap them out of it
          you need to demonstrate to them that their religion is either less moral or of lower status than if they were just normal because basically they do it to say they're holier than thou

            We produce a surplus of ruffage anyway. Making juice creates ruffage. Making vegetable oil creates ruffage. Milling flour creates ruffage. It very much is the overwhelming majority of crops fed to cattle and the exceptions are premium cattle.
            Why? Because obviously as a grain farmer I can sell my grain to humans more than to cattle farmers who need to later make a profit on that input themselves.

            Yes it is.

            https://www.cgiar.org/news-events/news/fao-sets-the-record-straight-86-of-livestock-feed-is-inedible-by-humans
            "A new study by FAO and published in Global Food Security found that livestock rely primarily on forages, crop residues and by-products that are not edible to humans and that certain production systems contribute directly to global food security, as they produce more highly valuable nutrients for humans, such as proteins, than they consume."

            Animals are a necessary part of our food supply. Everyone should be doing their part to consume more animal products for their own health and for the betterment of the earth. The vast majority of current rangeland cannot be converted to crop use, nor should we want that anyway. The only way to grow enough crops for human consumption without animal manure is to continually mine the earth to create artificial fertilizer which further harms our soil.

            "Some previous studies, often cited, put the consumption of grain needed to raise 1 kg of beef between 6 kg and 20 kg.
            Contrary to these high estimates, this study found that an average of only 3 kg of cereals are needed to produce 1 kg of meat at global level.
            It also shows important differences between production systems and species.
            For example, because they rely on grazing and forages, cattle need only 0.6 kg of protein from edible feed to produce 1 kg of protein in milk and meat, which is of higher nutritional quality. Cattle thus contribute directly to global food security.
            The study also investigates the type of land used to produce livestock feed. Results show that out of the 2.5 billion ha needed, 77% are grasslands, with a large share of pastures that could not be converted to croplands and could therefore only be used for grazing animals."

            If you care in any way about the health of the earth or about humanities future, you must STOP being vegan and consume more animal products (especially from ruminants) now.

                >70% of land is used to grow edible crops to feed cattle worldwide
                No, it is not. As a simple example, a farmer plants a corn crop to feed people. After harvesting the edible corn from a field, there is still the stalks, husks and other inedible byproducts which make up the majority of the biomass of the corn production process. This byproduct is then fed to animals as feed and so vegans disingenuously consider the entire corn field as being part of the 70% of land used for animal feed figure. If not fed to animals the byproduct would be shuffled to a landfill to rot generating enormous amounts of greenhouse emissions. Vegans don't care about misrepresenting data though since their in a cult.

            Even if that's true it means literally nothing. you can't choose a random crop in a random region which some people grow for animals and then extrapolate that into animal agriculture as a whole. It's like saying that because there are sweatshops in Indonesia that produce clothes using child labor, we should stop wearing clothes. It's just ridiculous nonsense.
