About the Unique Veg Beef Burger

Patrick Brown spent $80 million in five years to research and produce the ‘veg beef’. The patty’s key ingredient is leghemoglobin, which is a molecule found in both meat and plants that were discovered by the team at Impossible Foods. Other ingredients include potato protein, xanthan gum (for texture), water, wheat protein, coconut oil and other natural flavors. This veg patty has more proteins, fewer calories and contains no cholesterol, hormones or antibiotics compared to the normal ground beef. In order to maintain its quality and nutrition, this veg beef needs to be refrigerated just like the normal meat. The impossible burger tastes smells and cooks like a normal meat burger. It is topped with romaine, beefsteak tomato, pickles and a special sauce that are served on Martin’s potato roll with shoestring fries. Guests can also add cheese to it.

The Impossible burger costs $12, but as the demand will increase, the price may decrease.
