"If you’re thinking about buying plant-based foods, a trip to the supermarket
can leave you bewildered.

There are plant-based burgers, sausages and mince. The fridges are loaded with
non-dairy milk, cheese and yoghurt. Then there are the tins of beans and
packets of tofu.

But how much is actually healthy?

Our nutritional audit of more than 700 plant-based foods for sale in Australian
supermarkets has just been published. We found some products are so high in
salt or saturated fat, we’d struggle to call them “healthy”."
