"New" plant-based foods--a veggie burger that tastes like beef
I'd never heard of Impossible Burgers, even in my hip mountain town, but they're apparently becoming a huge player in the plant-based burger market.
Created of pea proteins, extruded to have meat-like fibers, flavored by sophisticated natural recreations of beef burger aroma and flavors, they're apparently fabulous as a plant-based burger that tastes like a beef burger. Who knew?
So I was interested to see two versions of similar products in one of the local grocery chains in my nearby city: Lightlife Plant-based Burger was the one I tried.
Here's an image from their website.
They're a plant-based protein company that was founded 40 (!) years ago in Massachusetts and seem to have robust offerings of traditional tempeh and other veggie-based products.
I've never been particularly keen on regular soy or wheat-based veggie foods, as they're often too salty and processed for me, aside from tofu, which seems like a normal fermented food, but these plant-based burgers are definitely tasty.
