#Spain (maybe @juliamunoz_dn and @manuel have opinions /more to say?) has introduced new dietary guidelines that recommend citizens eat between zero and three portions of meat per week.
Per the Plant-Based Food Alliance UK (commonly referred to as simply “Alliance”), the new recommendations were put together by the Scientific Committee of the Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition (ASEAN).
The committee maintains that reducing meat consumption is beneficial for both human health and the planet.
“The adoption by the Spanish population of a varied and balanced diet pattern characterised mainly by a greater predominance of foods of plant origin and a lower presence of foods of animal origin, in line with the Mediterranean diet pattern, can improve the state of health and well-being, while reducing the environmental impact of the food system,” a statement from ASEAN reads.
