the vegetarian & vegan market 2019

The NVV (dutch institute for vegans) states there is a steady growth of 30% every year in number of Vegans and vegetarians in The Netherlands. Worldwide, the vegan/vegetarian market is also growing rapidly. China has projected a growth of 17,2% for the coming years, and in the US: total sales of vegan /vegetarian products are 2.22 billion US dollars(2018). 

What is a vegan? The definition is subject to opinions, critics and many definitions on te internet. This is why Solid Vegan made our own definition of a vegan: a lifestyle were people strive to avoid as many animal products possible.

The most important part of being a vegan & vegetarian is to avoid any meat products from animals. Most vegans also avoid any products that are produced by animals, for example dairy products or honey. Fact is that everyone who eats less or no meat at all, contributes to the Solid Vegan lifestyle.

Facts about a vegan diet

“protein is crucial in building and maintaining muscle mass. Contrary to popular belief that vegans ‘don’t get enough protein’, consuming enough (plant) protein to see results at the gym isn’t difficult as long as you eat the right foods.

“It’s a common misconception that you need to be eating animal products like meat and chicken to meet your protein requirements,” Gawthorne said. “Those who follow a vegan diet can definitely consume adequate amounts of protein and meet their protein requirements.”

Protein is found in a number of plant-based foods, including:

  • Lentils and beans (e.g. black beans, lima beans, kidney beans)
  • Tempeh, tofu, edamame and soy products (soy milk, soy yoghurt)
  • Seeds (chia seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds)
  • Whole grains (rice, oats, wholemeal bread, quinoa, barley)
  • Nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios, cashews)
