The trend towards plant-based eating shows no sign of abating. In fact, a recent review of trends found that 56 per cent of us across the globe are trying to eat more plant-based foods.

In this episode, Flavia Fayet-Moore, from NRAUS, takes a deep dive into this research to explain the health benefits of plant-based protein, and uncovers some new insights into the unique contribution of nut protein to health.
