  1. This isn’t healthy in the least as it has more fat and salt than an actual real beef burger. Water, Soy Protein Concentrate, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Natural Flavors, 2% or less of: Potato Protein, Methylcellulose, Yeast Extract, Cultured Dextrose, Food Starch Modified, Soy Leghemoglobin, Salt, Soy Protein Isolate, Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E), Zinc Gluconate, Thiamine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1), Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Niacin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Vitamin B12.
    In summary, the Impossible Burger is made with lots of soy, oils, and nutrient additives. While it is vegan, it’s certainly no wholesome veggie burger! Calories: 240

  2. Nobody is going to comment on the taste? Well, I guess I’ll be the first… The “meat” patty I had was kind of dry. I’ve had the Impossible burger patty before and it wasn’t this dry. I guess it has something to do with the process of preparing it for volume sales. Tasting the patty alone, it seemed a little bland too. Comparing with the Beyond Burger, it tastes like there’s less salt in the Impossible Burger, but at least the condiments make up for it. The texture is about 80 to 90 percent there in terms of being close to actual beef. Halfway through eating the burger, I almost was fooled into thinking that it was a regular beef Whopper.

  3. Got this in STL during the trial release there- it’s fine. It tastes 85% like beef and topped with cheese even more so.

    I don’t think Whoppers are good but I think it’s on par taste wise with one. Excited to see how plant based “meats” expand and hopefully become more affordable. I would love more high protein plant options (just don’t care for cooking meat/ethics of it.)
