    Just what the American male needs, more engineered soy products.

    Here's the ingredient that makes Impossible burgers possible

    When you bite into a meatless burger, you may notice that it “bleeds.”

    That’s a feature companies like Impossible Foods have been working on for years. The distinct red color is part of the patty’s appeal, allowing it to look and taste like real meat.

    In a report with the Associated Press, biochemist Smita Shankar explained that the key ingredient used to give burgers that bleeding effect is actually engineered rather than extracted from a plant.

    To replicate the taste of meat, the company scanned plants for molecules that mimic a protein in meat that contains iron, which makes blood red.

    They finally settled on soy leghemoglobin, which is found in the root of soy plants.

    The company website touts its plant-based foods, but “no plant is actually touched” in the process of making its infamous "burger." Instead of using those plants directly, they insert synthetic versions of sections of soy DNA into yeast so it produces soy leghemoglobin during fermentation.

    The ingredient is meant to be less than 1% of the patty.

    Many ingredients don’t need approval from the Food and Drug Administration. Companies often hire scientific experts to declare ingredients to be “generally recognized as safe.” Impossible Foods says soy leghemoglobin met that requirement in 2014.

    It once again goes to show that the soft and weak soy swillers crave and want meat. They want it so bad that they will create and eat synthetic versions of it. That’s wierd.

    I don’t like or eat eggplant, but you don’t see me eating fake eggplant burgers. Logic escapes these people.

    My burger comes wrapped in butchers paper stamped "Not for resale", from a steer that I've watched grow.

    The vegetation that we eat in my house might be disguised but it's still obvious what it is such as broccoli and cheese sauce or Southern style green beans...

    The likelihood of anyone in my house wrapping their lips around this swill is zero.

    These vegan burgers are loaded with MSG. It's relabeled under various soy names such as soy protein isolate or disodium guanulate (sp?) but it's the same thing as MSG. Chemical that tricks the brain into thinking something tastes better than it actually does.

    My SO is a vegan of 10+ years and eats a lot of the Beyond burgers. I was tempted to try one just for giggles until I looked at the label and saw that it included MSG on the label TWICE under two different names, plus other ingredients I am sensitive to. So, no vegan burgers for me even if I wanted them. Which I don't.

    I'm vegan but hate when people use that term when speaking to others that express interest in moving away from a meat based diet. I would never touch this fake trash unless paid at least $100 per occurance, and even then would never do that on an ongoing basis. You can live on soda and chips and be considered vegan... Instead a whole food plant based diet is what advocates should be promoting, not this crap. The benefits of stopping and reversing things like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc. are not fully experienced until people stop with the artificial garbage.
