For fans of the iconic Beyond Meat, great news for 2021. The brand has just announced plans for two all new formulations set to hit stores next year.
In a similar vein to how regular ground beef comes in a variety of meat/fat ratios, the meat free brand aim to replicate this with their own product. Beyond writes:
One of the new Beyond Burgers features our juiciest patty for the meatiest burger experience, with strong nutritional wins like 35% less saturated fat than 80/20 beef. The other is our most nutritious patty yet with 55% less saturated fat than 80/20 beef. Both burgers will have a similar savory taste profile, lower total fat and fewer calories than 80/20 beef and B vitamins and minerals comparable to the micronutrient profile of beef.
