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