Though we live in a time when lots of alternative proteins are available to consumers, industrial animal agriculture continues to thrive and wreak havoc on the environment through deforestation, biodiversity loss, water pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. Fortunately, brilliant minds are working hard to find solutions to these pressing issues, and our guest today is one of them. David Welch, Ph.D., is a plant biologist, running coach, and the Chief Scientific Officer and Co-founder of Synthesis Capital – a global food technology and alternative protein investor aiming to transform our food system and remove animals from the equation.
Tune in to hear our illuminating discussion with Dr. Welch about his work with new food technologies and alternative proteins, and on a personal level, how fitness and a plant-based diet played a key role in his preparation and recovery from heart surgery.
“I really believe that most of the products on the
market today just don’t taste good enough to help most consumers
shift their dietary patterns, and I think as these new technologies
come out, that’s really going to change. Things are going to start
tasting more and more like the actual meat and dairy products that
most people like to eat.” – Dr. David
