Plant-Based Meat Maker Announces Two New Burgers with Less Saturated Fat

Plant-based meat producer Beyond Meat has introduced two new versions of its burgers, both with less saturated fat, and one of which the juiciest they had made.

Los Angeles-based firm Beyond Meat, known for its plant-based meat, announced new versions of its popular Beyond Burgers. The company’s newest addition to its lineup will include a juicier burger and another one with less saturated fats while maintaining the brand’s “savory taste.”

Even Less Saturated

Particularly, Beyond Meat’s new burger will be the company’s juiciest patty. On top of that, Beyond Meat also managed to lower the saturated fat by 35 percent compared to 80/20 (80 percent lean and 20 percent fat) beef. On the other hand, the company has also dramatically decreased by over half the saturated fat of its most nutritious patty, which now boasts of 55 percent less saturated fat than 80/20 beef.

Moreover, in a press release, the company said that they had maintained their burger’s savory taste profile even amid the lower saturation than 80/20 beef. Beyond Meat also mentioned that their latest burger iterations also contain vitamin B and minerals.

According to a report from The Verge, Beyond Meat did not really change its ingredients. What the company did was modify the processing of beans, oil, peas, and grains.

Sustainable and Healthy Burgers

Beyond Meat chief executive and founder Ethan Brown expressed his excitement over the new iterations of their burgers. “Our commitment is to provide consumers with absolutely delicious plant-based meats that are better for the people and the planet, no sacrifice required.”

Brown further said that the launch of these new burgers “speaks so clearly to what our brand and company stands for.”

Alternative Meat

American customers will be able to taste those newer Beyond Meat burgers by early next year, the company said. But for people in Los Angeles, they had a chance to have a taste of the new burgers. That’s from November 18th to November 20th.

The Verge also reported that plant-based meats had seen tremendous growth when the pandemic hit the US. Particularly, sales for these alternative meats rose by 264 percent. Additionally, the hype for alternative meats has also increased amid the health crisis.

And with the lockdowns that the states implemented, Beyond Meat also opened its online store several months ago. And earlier this month, the company also teamed up with McDonald’s. They will produce a new plant-based burger for the popular franchise. Upon the announcement of “McPlant,” shares for Beyond Meat climbed.
