EU Proposes To Ban ‘Meaty’ Names To Protect Consumers

In April, EU Parliament’s agriculture committee approved a ban which would prohibit meat-free foods being named after their traditional counterparts. Although some politicians believed that this is due to uproar from the meat industry, supporters of the legislation insist that it is solely to reduce confusion amongst consumers. Éric Andrieu, French socialist MEP comments: “The meat lobby is not involved in this.” He defends his stance by continuing: “We felt that steak should be kept for real steak with meat and come up with a new moniker for all these new products. There is a lot to be done in this front, a lot of creativity will be needed. People need to know what they are eating. So, people who want to eat less meat know what they are eating – people know what is on their plate.”

About PlantBased

I’m super excited to introduce you to my first issue of PlantBased magazine! To kick things off, I wanted to combine two of my favourite things: veganism and fitness. Exercise is somewhat like Marmite – you either love it, or hate it – but we’ve rounded up a variety of tips, tricks and activities that will get you excited about lacing up your trainers and venturing into the great outdoors. As a vegan, how many times have you been asked about your protein intake? It’s a common misconception that plant-based diets lack this vital nutrient, but we’ve debunked this myth, by filling this issue with a host of protein-packed recipes, perfect for post or pre-workout meals. Head to page 35 to find the Tofu Skewers with Mexican Rice and Roasted Sweet Potato – they’re my favourite! Here at PB HQ, we love a challenge. So, send us your favourite recipe that you can’t seem to veganise correctly and we’ll give it a plant-based twist. This month, we made a Mushroom Reuben (find it on page 15) which is a classic American sandwich, traditionally made with corned beef. We may be biased, but we think our recipe is 100 times better than the original. We also caught up with YouTube star Rachel Ama, who gave us an insight to why she became vegan and how it’s changed her life. She’s also shared three delicious recipes from her new cookbook Vegan Eats. To see what Rachel had to say, turn to page 50. Enjoy the issue.
