Another objective of this study is the identification of protein sources and nutritional value of meat analogues because this issue led to the new research agendas and industrial challenges. The review of the most relevant studies on how to obtain meat analogues, such as for example extrusion for plant-based meat analogue, open research horizons in improving the sensory and textural properties of plant-based meat analogues. Consumer behaviour of replacing animal meat with meat analogues and cultured meats is not an easy task, requiring in-depth studies and research, and the risk and benefits analysis of plant-based meat analogues. As in any new product development process, this study has also revealed the results related to consumer attitude research regarding meat analogues.
