GRS Ultra

Not surprisingly, many of the vegan GRS Ultra Review or vegetarian chicken substitutes feature soy as a prime ingredient. No doubt this is one reason why the Soyfoods Association of North America reported that annual soy product sales totaled $4.1 billion in 2008, up from $300 million in 1992. Despite this remarkable growth (which would be the envy of many other industries) the market for soy-based meat substitutes (chicken included) is still only a fraction of the half trillion dollars that Americans annual spend on meat. The potential has not been lost on researchers and investors, who continue to make considerable progress in developing tasty chicken alternatives that will fool the taste buds of the most discerning diner-in addition to making the manufacturer rather wealthy. The health-related properties of chicken substitutes are also a prime consideration. As a white meat, chicken has long been touted as a preferred dietary item for individuals desiring to cut down on red meat consumption. A truly desirable chicken substitute needs, then, to not only taste good, but provide some of the healthier features people have come to expect from the "real McCoy." Researchers have relied on a number of vegan foods as ingredients for such products. Tofu, tempeh (fermented soy), soy protein, and seitan (wheat gluten) have all played a role in some of the newest, most tasty "fake fowl." While purists may complain that such meat substitutes are highly processed and therefore not really that healthy, manufacturers of such substitutes are quick to counter that, for those with a taste for chicken, a bit of processing and the salt that goes with it may be preferable to the risk of salmonella. Some health proponents see in vitro meat, which is actual flesh from a petri dish rather than a live animal, as the ultimate solution. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has offered a $1 million prize to anyone who brings in vitro chicken meat to market by 2012. Proponents of soy chicken counter that such in vitro products are 5-10 years away. Meanwhile, viable substitutes are available now. In today's society much stress and attention is focused on dieting and eating right. This is no surprise considering we have reached record highs with obesity levels. But the real question is, why the sudden influx in obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and more?
