Redefining Protein: Adjusting Diets to Protect Public Health and Conserve Resources

The report Redefining Protein: Adjusting Diets to Protect Public Health and Conserve Resources distils current research looking at the social and environmental impacts of producing high-protein foods other than meat (legumes: pulses and soy, nuts and seeds, eggs and dairy). It aims to provide hospitals with key information to design healthier meals. 

The findings and associated Purchasing Considerations aim to guide the complex decision-making process encountered when applying an environmental nutrition approach to food purchases, specifically when reducing and replacing meat on the plate.

The report is written by Health Care Without Harm, an NGO seeking to transform the health sector worldwide.
