The new alternative to meat is now vegan meat which is being made through 3D imaging and has been done by Israeli startup Plantish.

This is a good alternative and answer to problems facing the world today. Be it concerns of overfishing, antibiotics, hormones, mercury and microplastics are driving a worldwide wave of interest in plant-based and cultured alternatives to conventional fish.

According to the cofounder and CEO Ofek Ron, the company’s purpose is “to save the oceans and eliminate the need to consume marine animals by providing more sustainable, more nutritious and more delicious fish options.” “Delicious” is the operative word.

“There are nearly endless opportunities to develop novel products that appeal to different markets around the world. But people will only buy them if they achieve taste and texture parity with conventional fish,” said Marika Azoff, corporate engagement specialist for the Good Food Institute (GFI), said in her recent state-of-the-industry report on alternative seafood.

For starters, the company’s Plantish Salmon will catch on with consumers only if it tastes authentic. And that’s not simple to accomplish when the main ingredients are legume proteins and algae extracts.
