About one in four Americans report having cut back on meat in their diet. What ramifications does this have for the U.S. agriculture industry? And are plant-based meats merely a fad, or are they here to stay? Julia Moskin, a veteran food reporter at The New York Times, and Laura Reiley, a reporter covering the business of food at The Washington Post, join the podcast to help us digest Gallup's latest findings.
Nearly one in four Americans (23%) report eating less meat in the past year than they have previously, with the highest rates of reported meat consumption reduction among women, nonwhites and Democrats.
Forty-one percent of Americans, including about half of adults younger than 50, say they have tried a plant-based meat product.
Many Americans may enjoy the vegetarian options now available in restaurants, grocery stores and on airplanes. But how many true vegetarians are there?
