Impossible Beef is made from proteins, flavors, fats, and binders. The key difference from your average beef burger? Our ingredients are derived from plants. Here’s an overview:
- Protein from soy and potatoes
- Flavor from heme (the molecule that makes meat taste, well, meaty)
- Fat from coconut and sunflower oils make it sizzle on the griddle
- Binders, methylcellulose and food starch, hold it together so you can make anything you want -- meatballs,dumplings, patties, and more.
