According to a new Wakefield Research study, a majority (55%) of those in the United States plan to eat more plant-based food this year.

Of the 55% of those who say they plan to eat more plant-based foods this year, 36% plan to eat “somewhat more”, with roughly 1 in 5 planning to eat “much more”. The study comes just days after the release of a report – conducted by Nielsen – which found that the sales of almond milk were up significant in 2015 compared to 2014, while the sales of dairy milk are down.

The study, commissioned by House Foods, also found that 35% of those in America like tofu, a number higher than most might expect given the negative stereotypes sometimes associated with it. 67% stated they like it primarily because of its health benefits.

The study was conducted in March and had 1,015 participants.
