What is Beyond Meat®?
Beyond Meat® is “on a mission to create juicy, delicious protein using 100% plant-based ingredients”.
How is it made?
The Beyond Burger® is built up, as opposed to grinding and breaking down meat into traditional beef burger patties, as well as using the same type of equipment and processes to make beef burgers. The beets add the red colour to mimic a beef patty; the coconut oil and potato starch provide the juiciness and chewiness. The mixture is then compressed and shaped.
