Impossible Beef is made from proteins, flavours, fats, and binders. The key difference from animal beef? Our ingredients are derived from plants. Here’s an overview:
- Protein from soy
- Flavour from heme (the molecule that makes beef taste so meaty)
- Fat from coconut and sunflower oils make it sizzle on the griddle
- Binders that hold it together so you can make anything you want -- meatballs, kebabs, patties, and more.
