Vegan takeaway orders have seen a 19 percent increase in popularity since 2015 across the States, according to a new report.

Conducted by leading takeout marketplace Grubhub, and initiated by Meatless Monday, the study - which gathered data from January 2015 to July 2017 - found that Americans are ordering more and more vegan dishes.

The report also shows that meat-substitutes are ordered five percent more on Mondays than the rest of the week since last year.

Another finding saw jackfruit has risen 33 percent in popularity for orders placed on Mondays since 2016.

Speaking about the report, Barbara Martin Coppola, CMO of Grubhub said: "With so many vegetarian dishes gaining popularity, it is easy to see that choosing meat-free meals is not just a trend.

"Grubhub provides an easy way for people to make the food choices that make them feel healthiest and happiest, at their convenience. For many, this includes ordering plant-based food!"

Dana Smith, campaign director of Meatless Monday, added: "It's exciting to see more people choosing meatless options on Mondays.

"By starting the week on a healthy note, we are forging a path that's good for our well-being."
