Animal product alternatives (or alternative proteins) are meat, eggs, and dairy products not made from living animals. Two main types of animal product alternatives are cell-based ("clean meat") and plant-based ("plant meat").[1][2]

Creating more attractive alternatives to meat, dairy products and eggs may help to encourage more people to reduce consumption of these products, and so reduce the suffering caused by factory farming.[3][4]
