Properties of GastroNoMeat®
GastroNoMeat® is characterized by a number of properties which resonate with the motives of consumers to consciously opt for less meat in their daily diet.
GastroNoMeat® fully meets the growing awareness to eat less meat. That is in itself healthy, but the beauty of GastroNoMeat® is that almost none will miss the meat.
The raw materials we process are of superior quality.
As a result, every GastroNoMeat® product has a high nutritional value and is low in calories. For example, our vegan minced meat is enriched with B12 and iron. No empty calories, but more than enough macro and micronutrients.
Our products contain no added sugars, no synthetic fragrances, colours, flavours or preservatives that can damage or weaken your health.
When people eat GastroNoMeat® products, they know that no animals have been killed. Not even as a by-product of animal slaughter like animal rennet in cheese or gelatine. One can enjoy GastroNoMeat® with a clear conscience.
The soy of the meat substitutes used is also GMO-free. Moreover, our supplier of soy protein is a member of the Round Table on Responsible Soy. We believe that nature is perfect as it is and that GMOs only are meant to disproportionately increase production.
This makes farmers continuously dependent on large bio-industrial companies. We do not participate in that. That is why we consciously and rigorously choose not to use GMO crops in our products.
GastroNoMeat® meal components with meat alternatives have an ecological footprint that is many times lower than meat-based foods.
For example, according to Blonk Consultants' final report on the environmental effects of meat and meat alternatives (report 3-8-2017 Dutch), our vegan mince (GoodBite) has a CO2 emission that is 4.5 times lower than half-to-half meat minced meat. In terms of land and water consumption, our vegan minced meat scores 4 to 5 times better than half-to-half minced meat.
