We are now living in an increasingly hectic technology-driven world which makes a huge impact on my lifestyle. At times, I don’t even have time for a proper meal thus I opted for fast food. I noticed my unhealthy food choices makes me prone to illness such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. Thus, I’m now trying to be more health conscious and attempts to eat healthier. One of the ideas I’m trying out is a plant-based diet.
What’s plant-based diet?
A plant-based diet consists of food and ingredients that come from plants instead of animals. Science and research has shown that a plant-based diet gives multiple health benefits for our body. A friend shared with me an article from Phuture Daging Malaysia, a pioneer of plant-based meat solution provider in Malaysia. In their article, they shared the various aspects and benefits of a plant-based diet.
If you’re unaware, a plant-based diet has been found to help lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels, sustain a healthier weight and produce less incidence of Type 2 diabetes. This leads to a reduced risk of illnesses like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, prevention of cancer and a better quality of life.
By switching to a plant-based diet will contribute towards your health goals and prevent the onset of life-threatening diseases in the long run. Are you a meat lover? If yes, you can customize your plant-based diet by replacing meats with ‘plant-based meat’ from Phuture Daging.
Phuture Daging’s plant-based meat product is entirely meat-free and is 100% plant-based. It contains 80 percent less total fat, 70 percent less saturated fat and 50 percent less calories compared to ground beef of the same weight. This will do wonders for our health!
Plant based meat as alternative protein source
Plant-based meat is made from plant proteins, carbohydrates, healthy fats, natural colouring and natural flavouring to mimic the texture, taste and smell of meat. Made with healthy ingredients from the plant kingdom, plant-based meat is high in protein and contains all the necessary nutrients for our diet with lower total fat and calories, and zero cholesterol.
In Malaysia, Phuture Daging is a pioneering plant based meat solution provider that will soon be launching plant-based meat solutions curated specifically for the food services industry, complete with the Halal certification. They are also helping the local SME’s company such as café and restaurant owner by providing Phuture Daging’s innovative alternative plant based protein solutions and supports them to develop their plant based menu. This sounds pretty exciting!
I can’t wait to try the amazing innovations from Phuture Daging. However, always remember the key to a healthier body is to achieve a balanced diet. If you’re trying out the plant-based diet like me, remember to eat more variety of foods to get the same nutrients found in animal products. Plant-based eaters have many choices of fortified foods to provide the nutrients that they need. Minerals such as calcium, usually found in dairy products, are added to soy milk and rice milk for instance. Rice, bread and pasta are also commonly fortified with vitamins and minerals to add more nutritional value. *wink*
I’m definitely looking forward to the day when plant-based eaters in Malaysia will be able to dine out and order creative plant-based meat dishes such as stir-fries, curries, baked meals and more that is catered to our local taste buds! With Phuture Daging supporting the local café and restaurant by incorporating plant based menu solutions in their menus as part of their initiative to support local SMEs, I’m sure it will be a hit!
