There is an argument that by eating a plant-based diet, it could actually be better for the environment and more sustainable than eating meat. Of course, the reason behind why some people eat meat is for the taste and texture that would be hard, if not impossible, for plants to replicate.
However, companies like Impossible Foods have come pretty close and while there is still a bit of a difference, many reviews have found that it comes damn close to the real thing. However, the company is now looking to expand their offerings by turning their sights to milk, where they want to try and create plant-based milk that’s like the real deal.
Now, there are already several variations of milk that act as substitutes to animal milk, such as soy milk and almond milk. However, in terms of taste and texture, it’s not the same, but Impossible Foods believes that they are close to achieving that. During a press conference, the company showed off what they’ve developed so far which they claim is just as creamy as animal milk, but looks like it, and tastes the same.
They even say that it can be used for hot beverages like coffee or tea where it will not curdle unlike other plant-based milk. The company’s milk product is still in development and it is unclear when it will be available for the consumer market.
