A pro eater has been filmed feasting on vegan snacks after experts claimed the simple sound of eating them has therapeutic benefits.

The UK’s number one female competitive eater, Leah Shutkever, tested out the theory in a spine-tingling ASMR video as she chomps, crunches and chews her way through meat-free dishes.

Leah can be seen and heard tucking into a burger, chicken-style nuggets, tacos, crudites, a vegan hot dog and a meat-free Caesar salad with croutons.

Research of 2,000 adults found nearly half of Brits have specific sound triggers that relax them, and a third actively seek out pleasing sounds to unwind from stress.

Nicola Yates, spokeswoman for vegan food brands, The Fry Family Food Co., Oumph! and LikeMeat, said: “Our research shows that listening to ASMR is a great way to indulge your senses and unwind from the daily stresses of modern life.

“Plant-based eating isn’t just good for the taste buds – it’s good for the ears too!

"That’s why we’ve created a Veganuary ASMR experience to stimulate the senses, and highlight just how great meat-free meals can look, taste – and sound.

“January is often associated with restricting your diet after an indulgent festive season, but we want to prove that you can still spoil yourself with plants – with all the benefits that meat free eating brings, and still experience all of the pleasures of your favourite foods.

"Turn up the volume and tuck in – it’s a treat for all of the senses!”

Research also found the ocean to be the most soothing sound among Brits, being selected by 51%, followed by waterfalls with 38%, according to OnePoll figures.

In the kitchen, half of respondents say they find cooking ‘therapeutic’, and three in ten often make dishes purely so they can hear foodie sounds.

Food sizzling in a pan was selected by 12% as their favourite sound, with an apple crunching and wine cork popping also appearing in the top 40 list.
