Rising food prices, disease-inflicted livestock and a shortage of imported chicken meat are emerging issues of concern in Singapore. The world affects what we eat, and what we eat impacts the world. Are alternative proteins a possible answer? Would you consider them? Our daily food choices have a huge impact on the environment. Production of meat has a much larger impact compared to the production of vegetable-based proteins. To create a food production and supply system that is more sustainable and environmentally friendly, food consumption behaviour needs to change. A reduction of meat intake is necessary. The introduction of alternative protein sources—for instance, those reliant on insects, cultured meat, or microalgae—could be a potential solution to replace meat. This presentation highlights the aspect of consumer acceptance and potential barriers for the creation of novel food products based on alternative proteins.
