First we took on the cow, now we’re taking on the pig. We chose Impossible Pork as our next product because pork is the most popular meat in the world, accounting for about 38% of meat production worldwide. Impossible Pork allows pork-lovers to keep enjoying their favorite ground pork recipes, but in a way that’s better for the planet.
Here’s the ingredient list:
Water, Soy Protein Concentrate, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Natural Flavors, 2% Or Less Of: Methylcellulose, Cultured Dextrose, Food Starch Modified, Salt, Yeast Extract, Soy Leghemoglobin, Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E), Soy Protein Isolate, Zinc Gluconate, Spice, Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Niacin, Thiamine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Vitamin B12.
What about nutrition? Impossible Pork contains no gluten, no animal hormones and no antibiotics. It has 16g protein, 3mg iron, 0mg cholesterol, 13g total fat, 7g saturated fat and 220 calories in a 4-oz. serving. For reference, conventional 70/30 pork from animals contains 17g protein, 1mg iron, 86mg cholesterol, 32g total fat, 11g saturated fat and 350 calories in a 4-oz. serving.
We’re still putting the finishing touches on Impossible Pork, so you won’t see it on menus just yet. In the meantime, check out our other new product, Impossible Sausage Made from Plants, in restaurants across the US.
