What are Plant-Based products?

We hear more and more about “Plant-Based” products, but there is a lot of ignorance around this concept.

Plant-Based products are those made made only with raw materials of plant origin. Even so, it is common that, despite not including ingredients of animal origin in their composition, they are inspired by them. These foods are created, as is to be expected, with the purpose of encouraging health care and promoting a healthier diet. But are these the only benefits of Plant-Based products?

The success of Plant-Based foods

Today, Plant-Based nutrition is in full expansion. In fact, for several years now, it could be said that we have been in the midst of a Plant-Based revolution.

Usually, these foods are chosen because they are considered healthier, because of their taste or because they are perfect for vegan or vegetarian diets. In addition to these clear health benefits, Plant-Based products stand out for being more sustainable than animal-based products.

In environmental terms, this type of food helps reduce the carbon footprint by up to 73%. They also require less agricultural land and fewer natural resources than those of animal origin.

This Plant-Based boom lays the foundation for the momentous change that is taking place in the eating habits of society globally. Environmental and healthy eating awareness continues to grow and, consequently, so does the demand for plant-based and more sustainable alternatives to animal-based foods.

In Europe, the 4 largest markets for Plant-Based products are, respectively, Germany, which leads with a sales value of more than 1,911M euros, followed by the United Kingdom, Italy and Spain, where 31.2% of the population already consumes this type of food on a daily basis.

This is Greenster, our Plant-Based product.

The future will be Green or it won’t be. 

From Quescrem we present our almond spread fermented as cream cheese, Greenster under this slogan and with three principles in mind:
