Nothing is more important to us than health and safety. Impossible Foods fully complies with all U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations and has gone above and beyond strict compliance, providing extensive test data to the FDA. The FDA reviewed our data and gave us a “no-questions letter” validating the safety of our soy leghemoglobin. This required rigorous testing, including a stringent rat feeding study -- which found no adverse effects even at consumption levels extraordinarily higher than a human would ever consume.
The heme in the Impossible Burger is identical to the heme humans have been consuming for hundreds of thousands of years -- in meat from animals and other foods. We have a team of world-class researchers who are committed to making the Impossible Burger the best meat on the planet.
