This Past Meat Burger overview is for these of us seeking to modified it up. Some plant-based burger patties have been exhibiting up at Burger King (and promoting out).

What are they?

They aren’t your typical vegetarian substitute for meat like my Mushroom Lentil Burgers or my Portobello Burger.

These Past burgers are attempting to imitate an precise beef hamburger.

How do they do it? I’m not precisely certain however one proven fact that I seen instantly was that this burger has 20 grams of fats (5 grams of that are saturated). The saturated fats is from coconut oil and isn’t the identical because the saturated fats you’ll discover in beef.

What I discover actually attention-grabbing is that the dietary make-up of the 4 ounce Past burger versus an 85% lean beef burger isn’t that completely different.

Past Burger:
4 ounces = 270 energy, 20 g fats, 5 g saturated fats, 5 g carbohydrates, 0 g sugar, 20 g protein, 3 g fiber, 380 mg sodium, 8 Freestyle Smt Pts

Beef Burger:

85% Lean Meat, 4 ounces = 284 energy, 17 g fats, 7 g saturated fats, 0 g carbohydrates, 0 g sugar, 29 g protein, 0 g fiber, 81 mg sodium, 8 Freestyle Smt Pts

Clearly, if you wish to mimic meat it doesn’t harm to have the about the identical fats and protein content material.

Right here is the Past Burger thawed:

You might be presupposed to thaw it earlier than cooking and as you’ll be able to see it’s pink like meat. They use annatto – a pure pink dye and beet juice extract to get the colour.

It’s made with pea protein isolate (no soy or gluten), canola oil, and coconut oil. There’s a little cellulose from bamboo and different stuff however I don’t have an issue with the elements.

It does grill up like a burger and was straightforward to cook dinner. That is as straightforward as any pre-made meat burger you could find on the grocery retailer.

How did it style? It had a crispy exterior and a gentle inside – like a uncommon burger. The consistency approached meat and I discovered it fairly tasty. Was it like meat? Not precisely, nevertheless it was fairly convincing.

However, I’ve a number of issues with the Past Burger. First, these two patties set me again $7! Ouch! These patties are operating $14 per pound.

Additionally, I hoped for {that a} plant based mostly burger can be lighter (fewer energy) than a beef burger however, alas, Past has added a ton of fats to make sure it tastes good. You may add fats to nearly something to make it style actually good (I drown my kale in olive oil typically to get my children to eat it).

These patties are higher for the earth than cow meat however there’s a variety of plastic packaging that isn’t planet pleasant. Additionally, I wish to understand how a lot vitality it takes to supply certainly one of these infants. I’m certain that these are higher for the setting than beef however not pretty much as good for the planet as my portobello burger.

Have you ever tried the Past Meat Burger? Please share your overview.*
