Abstract :

Meat consumption is a custom that dates back thousands of years in human history. Plants and meat constitute a major portion of the diet and humans as omnivores require both for a healthy lifestyle. Recently, the trend of using plants as the only energy source has gained popularity causing people to replace meat in their diet. However, the absence of meat in the diet can lead to protein, zinc, iron, and B-vitamins deficiency consequently resulting in various health issues. Moreover, easy digestibility and high-quality meat protein play a significant role in human growth and development. Meat consumption is also considered a cultural identity for many nations. Therefore, its nutritional and cultural significance can’t be overlooked. Keywords: Meat consumption, omnivores, cultural identity, plant-based diet
