Meat replacement, also referred to as meat analog, is a safe meat substitute that is similar in chemical and esthetic characteristics such as meat appearance, taste, flavor, and texture.

Meat alternatives are sometimes referred to as analog meat, mock meat, faux meat or imitation meat. Due to the growing prevalence of animal diseases, the global scarcity of animal proteins and the increasing demand for religious food, the use of vegetable proteins in food products has been increasing. Usually, meat substitutes mimic certain cosmetic features, such as chemical characteristics of particular meat types.

Vegetables that are rich in protein and also by adopting meat substitutes will fulfill the supplement of the protein in vegetarian diet by meat like substances.
