You Are Invited to a Webinar on Plant-Based Meat

Let’s Separate Fact from Fiction
It would appear we’re newly in love with plant-based “meat,” and though the new higher-tech vegan meat is, on its face, better for the environment — and obviously for animals — it is still yet another form of ultraprocessed food. (Making an Impossible Burger from scratch is akin to making a Cheeto.) If we’re going to embrace plant-based meat alternatives, we have to determine whether they’re actually “food.” No doubt you have something to say about this — and we’d like to hear it. Heated and True Health Initiative invite you to join us for a health-focused webinar about meatless meat on Monday, September 9, at 3 p.m.

Please join us with your questions and comments. The panel includes:
