This is a list of meat substitutes. A meat analogue, also called a meat substitute, approximates certain aesthetic qualities (primarily texture, flavor and appearance) or chemical characteristics of specific types of meat. Many analogues are soy-based (see: tofu, tempeh) or gluten-based.

Meat substitutes: natural, traditional and commercially made[edit]

Tempeh is a traditional soy product originally from Indonesia that is prepared by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form.
