Nothing is more important to us than your health and safety. Impossible Foods fully complies with all U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations and has gone well above and beyond strict compliance, providing extensive test data to the FDA and receiving a “no-questions letter” validating the safety of our key ingredient, 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. Curious about our decision to conduct animal testing? Read this letter from our CEO.
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. Our team of world-class researchers -- including VP of Nutrition and Health Sue Klapholz -- are committed to making the best meat, dairy and fish on the planet.
