You Can Now Experience The Impossible Burger In Your Own Kitchen


For several years, the companies Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat have been continuously gaining attention because of their meat alternatives, which have been made possible through the use of state-of-the-art technology. However, the two companies have not crossed paths yet, as Beyond Meat focused on getting into grocery stores, while Impossible Foods focused on the restaurant market. 

Both Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods sell their ground burger alternatives in similar packaging. They look about like ground meat and both reportedly char—like the real thing—when cooked in a skillet. But just how they will stack up against each other in the hands of home cooks remains to be seen.

Now, people will be able to judge which meat alternative is the better one, as Impossible Foods announced on September 20 that they will be moving their product into grocery stores.

It will roll out first into 27 Gelson’s grocery stores in California, and has promised news of more expansion in the coming months. A 12-ounce package of Impossible’s plant-based meat goes for about $9 a pop.

Oh, you mean that sometimes people don't eat certain things for reasons other than taste? I wonder if that might explain all those vegans and vegetarians who want their meat substitutes to look like the "real thing" that so perplexed the commenter I was responding to . . .

Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but diabetes doesn't mean "not liking sugar" (or not liking sweet things). Diabetes is a disease where blood glucose level is too high because the body doesn't produce enough insulin (the hormone that helps glucose move from the blood into the cells).
A lot of diabetics, like regular people, like the taste of sweet things. They just can't have (too much) sugar as it exacerbates their disease.

Never ceases to amaze me that diabetics would want their food and drink to taste like the "real thing." Can you believe things like Diet Coke?
Also never ceases to amaze me that dieters would want their food and drink to taste like the "real thing." Low-fat milk? Give me a break!
