California - Is Meatless Burger Becoming The New Trend?

Good news for those who like the all-American favorite burgers but want to live a healthier diet and lifestyle. Now, people can still get their burger fix minus the guilt of red meat. A breakthrough burger also looks like any other burger, but the makers behind it say the patty could also be the future of protein.

Beyond Meat Founder and CEO, Ethan Brown says theirs is a company that’s focused on “building meat from plants.”

Scientists and chefs work together in their company’s new Los Angeles facility to recreate the flavor, aroma, and texture of meat by using plant-based ingredients.

Among the company’s investors is NFL wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. The business- and the burger- appealed to the athlete when they told him he can still get the same amount of protein in a burger without the ill effects of red meat.

Brown is also claiming that his lab creation is not only offering a healthier product but also responds to calls for animal welfare and environmental concerns.

Now, the plant-based “meatless” burger is being sold in stores and restaurants, including mainstream big chains as TGI Friday.

Beyond Meat says they are already commanding a strong support from consumers, with 13-million and counting in burger sales.

Nutritionist Alissa Rumsey has her thoughts, however. She said: “It ends up being this pretty highly processed food because they're trying to mimic a beef burger.”

The nutritionist added: "I think that there's sort of this health halo around the idea of 'plant-based.' and, just because something is plant-based doesn't mean that it's made from whole vegetables or whole grains."

Some are skeptic about it, too.
