There is a wide range of quality meat alternatives to traditional BBQ which have become extremely popular over recent years. In fact if you take a look around you will probably find that there are more options available than ever before, and many of them taste far better than the original product. However, there is one common problem that all vegan or vegetarian products have – texture. Most of the time the texture of standard meat is much tougher, making it hard for our taste buds to appreciate the difference when eating them.
Quality Meat Alternatives
For this reason it is very important that if you intend to buy quality meat alternatives you make sure that the product is made from completely natural products. Many of the plant based meats and pulses sold in supermarkets contain the protein commonly referred to as ‘meat protein’, but because of its complex nature it has a number of different nutritional requirements that must be fulfilled in order for it to be considered healthy. For example, unlike meat, plant-based protein must have a good amount of B2, which helps develop the essential organs and the muscles used in digestion. B12 is essential in this process as it helps regulate blood pressure, and since many vegetarians (and even vegans) do not eat enough red meat they also do not get sufficient amounts of vitamin B2 in their diet. Fortunately, there are plenty of vegan and vegetarian products on the market that are full of all of these nutrients and, as long as they are well-cooked, will provide you with excellent tasting food.
For example, there is a product called Jackfruit by Goldbar which is made from dehydrated jackfruit that has been frozen. When this product has been mixed with a variety of other spices and served in a pakoras it creates a unique take on a traditional Turkish delight. By taking the moisture out of the jackfruit and infusing it with a host of different tastes including cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and coconut oil (not to mention its excellent texture and incredible flavor), jackfruits become rich and creamy in texture and taste and will almost melt in your mouth. This makes them a wonderful meat substitute that can improve the texture of vegetarian cooking and give it a unique, rich flavor that you will truly appreciate.
