Eating a plant-based diet is not just good for one’s health, but it is also good for the environment with the impact of livestock and fish production contributing to the world’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. At Redox, we have expanded our range to offer a sustainable and healthy alternative to meat-based proteins.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations, the livestock sector is ‘one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global’. They estimate that meat based protein production is responsible for 14.5% of the world’s GHG emissions. World scientists on the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) agree that we need to reduce the amount of GHG’s in the atmosphere by 80% by 2050 in order to avoid catastrophic climate change.
Plant protein production offers a lower environmental impact and a sustainable solution by reducing energy consumption, emissions, land usage and water consumption. Plant based protein diets have also become a solution to many health issues, showing beneficial at lowering the risk of heart disease, reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes and providing a better means of weight control, making them an ingredient of choice in many food and beverage products, both vegan and non-vegan.
At Redox, we have added more plant-based products to our portfolio in response to increased demand and market changes. It is a part of our continued efforts in bringing the next ‘big thing’ to customers, while also keeping with our sustainability goals. Our plant protein products include:
- Soy Protein
- Pea Protein
- Rice Protein
- Wheat Protein
