today we see up to 60% of Europeans are following a flexitarian diet and in the u.s. it's around 50% today when you go out to eat there's so many places you can go there's such a great selection of foods from all around the world from different countries and different cultures but when you're a flexitarian can be more challenging it's challenging to find new inspiration for your foods enough talk let's go make this meat free in order to make a good meat alternative product basically you need three different protein times in this example for hamburgers you need a structured protein when you're tearing apart you get this nice fibrils and you need some granular pieces that provides the particulates bite of the burger and texture that you also expect from a meat product and then finally you need some binders to bind it all together the DuPont we have some unique possibilities because we have a fairly broad portfolio of ingredients that we can bring together and combined to obtain almost the same texture and almost the same taste like a regular meat product so if you want to optimize the bite or the firmness we can compare the tests we are running by using a texture analyzer well our plant-based solutions for meat alternatives are very planet friendly they are also good from animal welfare perspective and then they're healthy we have completed a lifecycle assessment from the seat is put in the ground until you have the final soy and the studies show that the carbon footprint measured in co2 equivalents per kilo protein is as low as two point four so two point four kilograms due to the king protein where beef is hundred to two hundred kilogram of co2 so a huge difference in a global level dish solution can make a huge contribution to sustainability let's take a US as an example if you switch out one of every seven burger sold in the US with our solution you can save 22 million tons of co2 annually in u.s. and that is equivalent of taking five million US cars off the road each year so it's really one of the solutions we have that can make the biggest difference to sustainability really filler can help spread the message around flexitarian ism and get more people to eat less meat and in that way make more sustainable food solutions for the future it's a solution I'm really proud of it must have a huge potential and it really speaks to the new generation of people who looks for solutions that are healthy and that are also good for the planet and I think we really nailed it in this case you
