Have you seen the Beyond Meat products around the store lately and are wondering what they’re all about? We got the details from Beyond Meat® about their plant-based meat products.
What is the Beyond Burger®?
The Beyond Burger is a plant-based burger that looks, cooks and satisfies like beef. It has all the juicy, meaty deliciousness of a traditional burger, but comes with the upsides of a plant-based meal. The Beyond Burger has 20g of plant-based protein and has no GMOs, soy, or gluten.
What’s different about the new Beyond Burger®?
The new Beyond Burger is our meatiest, juiciest burger yet. This latest version also has lower total fat, fewer calories and added B Vitamins and minerals.
Is the Beyond Burger® healthy?
We think we make the best-tasting and best-for-you burger out there. It has no GMOs, soy, gluten or bioengineered ingredients, and is made of quality ingredients—like peas and brown rice. It’s an excellent source of protein with 20g per serving. Compared to 80/20 beef it also has 35% less total and saturated fat, lower calories, no cholesterol, more iron and comparable B vitamins and minerals.
I want a Beyond Burger®! Where can I get one?
At your local Adams Fairacre Farms!
What are the white marbling specks on the patties?
The white specks are similar to marbling that you see on traditional beef burgers, but ours are made from coconut oil and cocoa butter. These plant-based fats provide melty, mouthwatering marbling to the Beyond Burger, creating a juicy texture that’s closer to ground beef than ever before.
What kind of protein do you use?
Peas and rice provide a complete protein.
How do you make meat from plants? What ingredients do you use?
Our Beyond Burger is made of quality ingredients—like peas and brown rice—and a simple process to turn them into great-tasting meat. Like all of our products, the Beyond Burger is made with no GMOs, soy or gluten.
Does the Beyond Burger® need to be refrigerated ?
Yes. Just like meat, you should keep the Beyond Burger at refrigerated temperature until you cook it on the stovetop, griddle or grill.
How long can I keep the Beyond Burger®?
If bought refrigerated, check the retailer-applied sticker “use-by date” on the front of the package. If bought frozen, refer to the “If purchased frozen, use by” date on the packaging. Once you decide to thaw, Beyond Burgers have a 10-day shelf life.
Can I freeze Beyond Burgers?
If products are purchased thawed, we do not recommend refreezing and suggest following the stickered best by date. If the product was purchased frozen, it can be stored in the freezer following the printed best by date.
Is the Beyond Burger® safe to consume if I have a nut allergy?
Peas are legumes. People with severe allergies to legumes like peanuts should be cautious when introducing pea protein into their diet because of the possibility of a pea allergy. Our products do not contain peanuts or tree nuts.
