The burger is an American institution.
The sandwhich as synonymous with our country as the Statue of Liberty.
The burger, like any form of art has an array of different versions.
The Big Mac, the Whopper, the Double Stack from Wendys, even homeade burgers are flat out scrumptious.
The drawback of these tasty morsels is the unhealthy nature of the ingredients.
The burger itself is made from beef, red meat.
Red meat is packed with saturated fat, which raises cholesterol, and can lead to all sorts of long term problems.
None that we need to delve into now.
The point being, consuming the burger comes with risk.
On top of that, many people take issue with the method in which most red meat is produced.
Not only does it include the slaughter of animals, but the actual process thereafter is not not happiness and lights.
Then there is the segment of the population that consider themselves vegans, and vegetarians.
For those of us that typically don’t enjoy the awesome experience of a good burger for health related reasons, I am here to introduce the answer to your prayers.
The meatless burger.
A burger that taste amazing, not one of those digusting tofu burgers.
The sandwhich is made almost entirely plant matter.
“The Impossible Burger, which “looks, cooks, smells, sizzles and taste like conventional ground beef but is made entirely from plants.Because it’s made entirely from plants, Impossible Foods says that an Impossible Burger uses 95% less land and 74% less water, and it emits about 87% less greenhouse gases than a burger from cows.”
The plant-based burger has more protein, less total fat and fewer calories than a similar-sized hamburger patty made with beef. The Impossible Burger has no cholesterol, antibiotics or synthetic hormones
It’s a brilliant innovation, and it’s no surprise that the product is backed by Bill Gates.
Impossible Food is the company behind the burger,
Started by a Bio-chemist from Stanford, the company was formed in 2011
According to Wikipedia, the company is “a company that develops plant-based meat and dairy products made without animals. Headquartered in Redwood City, California, the company aims to give people the taste and nutritional benefits of meat without the negative health and environmental impacts of livestock products. The company researches animal products at the molecular level, then selects specific proteins and nutrients from plants to recreate the experience of meats and dairy products from animals.
The company is tremendous, not only do they produce mouth watering food, but the organization is rooted in science, and health awareness.
The burger is only served in select locations according to sources.
Here are the locations, go give the product whirl if you get the chance!
The restaurant Momofuku Nishi in New York, owned by David Chang, began serving the Impossible Burger in July 2016.
In October, the Impossible Burger became a standing menu item on three additional restaurants in California: Jardinière and Cockscomb in San Francisco, and Crossroads Kitchen in Los Angeles.
