EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Aug. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In an effort to make plant-based meat accessible to more consumers, Beyond Meat, Inc.

Beyond Meat products are made with simple, plant-based ingredients with no GMOs or artificially produced ingredients. Recently, the findings from a clinical study using Beyond Meat’s plant-based products were published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. In the study conducted at Stanford University, researchers evaluated the impact of replacing animal-based meat with plant-based meat over an 8-week period on cholesterol levels (including LDL), heart disease risk factors including TMAO levels, and body weight, and found improvement in key health metrics when participants replaced animal-based meat with plant-based meat. The results provide yet another data point in a growing field of research about how plant-based meat can help people live healthier lives, and Beyond Meat is committed to supporting further academic and scientific study into the impacts of plant-based meats on health.
Earlier this month Beyond Meat launched a new brand anthem, inviting consumers to join in the company’s mission by asking themselves: “What If We All Go Beyond?” The movement is built on the idea that collective actions – big and small – can affect extraordinary change on people’s health and the health of the planet. The launch of the company’s direct-to-consumer site is the latest effort in furthering the company’s goal to increase accessibility to plant-based meat and supporting consumers’ journeys in finding a better way to feed the future.
