Feeding the world's growing population presents plant-based agriculture with enormous challenges as it is estimated that current agricultural production must increase 60 to 100 percent all else being unchanged (food waste levels, current trends in population growth and food consumption). The quantities and qualities of necessary food components, e.g., proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and vitamins and minerals in plant products are highly relevant for human and animal consumption. These plant foods also contain a varied and limited range of bioactive compounds that have been associated with the prevention of chronic diseases including heart and circulation problems, cancer, diabetes, cataracts, and age-related functional decline.
