Beyond Burger 2.0
« on: July 05, 2019, 03:00:45 PM »
Tried it and it was meh.   Compared to the impossible burger it had a better texture and mouthfeel but a worse flavor.  I could definitely taste the peas (a sentence you have to say carefully)

So it had that pea-ness flavor? I’ll pass

I sell the Beyond sausage bratwurst. I think they taste great. I have fooled several friends by not telling them its not meat and they are rarely able to guess. I do not taste peas, I didn't think the burgers tasted like peas either but I don't like them as much.

I like mine with sauerkraut. Some of my customers order them with bacon and one tops hers with pulled pork  >:D


Edit, I also tried the taco meat and thought it sucked, It has an artificial texture.

I have tried the sausage too, I think it's better.  It wouldn't fool me in a taste test but it might fool me in the absence of somethign to compare it to.

I had a Beyond Meat burger from Carl's Jr. and it was like an average medium-rare burger patty.  If we price in environmental externalities, make beef expensive, I can see this type of veggie burger becoming a standard ersatz good. 

And I'm not the only one:


As I understand it, there's a lot of money betting that Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods will be the Coke and Pepsi of meat-free meat.

Looking forward to trying an Impossible Burger one of these days.

As an aside, there's a bunch of different kinds of veggie burgers out there and some of them delicious.

Best I've ever had:

When I lived in Mexico I went to a vegetarian restaurant on a few occasions. Their fake meat tasted way too much like meat. It was horrid because it did taste like meat. However, I often cooked beans, mashed them up in a blender, added some flour and corn masa to hold it all together, then cooked it like burgers. Absolutely nothing at all like meat except that you could eat it in a hamburger bun. It was delicious because it was beans and it tasted like beans. (I made my beans medium spicy: Lots of flavorings and a moderate amount of chili pepper.)

No fake meat for me. (Obviously, no actual meat either. Or lab-grown meat.) But I do love beans with home-made 100% whole-grain bread. (Nothing against store bread, except that it has too much sodium for my blood pressure and it doesn't taste as good.)

The EU has decided that fake meat cannot be labeled as "burger", "sausage", "bacon", etc.  The discussion continues.

It will become evident before long that pretend meats are not environmentally as sustainable as well raised livestock and that these products are not as nutritious as actual flesh and organs.  If it tastes "just like bacon", then it is bacon.

As you can surmise, lonely moa has a "sacred cow" regarding carno diet.

The nutrients in actual meat are myriad and human metabolism makes the best of them.  Artificial "meat", even with added micronutrients will not come to the party for fuelling the human body.  Just an also ran, IMHO.  Why choose second best?

I like tofu and pretty much any kind of soy product, so I would probably like one of these.
