The truth is that almost everything we eat (from applesauce to yogurt) is a combination of nature and science; it’s all a process, often including blending, mixing, fermentation, or baking. Our products are processed by mixing carefully selected ingredients, derived from plants or by fermentation, to create something unique and delicious.
Impossible Foods’ mission is to use the key components of meat (protein, fat, and flavour) more efficiently and sustainably than animals can. For example: we make heme, the molecule that gives meat its craveable flavour, via fermentation of genetically engineered yeast. Then we combine it with our primary ingredients: water, soy protein concentrate, coconut oil, and sunflower oil. The remaining ingredients are vitamins, minerals, binders, and flavours. Mix it all together, package it up, and you’ve got Impossible™ Burger.
