Impossible Burger is made from proteins, flavors, fats, and binders, like almost every burger you've eaten in your life. The key difference? Our ingredients are derived from plants. Here’s an overview:
- Protein from soy and potatoes
- Flavor from heme (the molecule that makes meat taste like meat), dextrose (a sugar found naturally in fruits and honey), and yeast extract (a natural flavor that adds a savory element)
- 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, kebab, patties, etc.
