Meat from Fruit – level 2

26-10-2020 07:00

Every year, there is a nine day vegetarian festival in Thailand, when millions of people stop eating meat for nine days. More people give up meat for even longer, and they do it more often.

Food producers usually use pea or soy proteins to make meatless products, but there are other possibilities, too. Jackfruit has become a popular substitute for meat. Jackfruit is a big spiky fruit with yellow color inside. It is sweet, but when it is not ripe, it has no specific taste which makes it perfect for dishes based from plants.

The business with products based from plants is growing very fast, and producers expect it to grow even more in the future.

Difficult words: protein (a part of food that helps our muscles and bodies grow), meatless (without meat), substitute (when people use something instead of something else).
