NEW RECIPE FAQS

WHY THE NEW RECIPE?

We launched the Impossible Burger in 2016, but we didn’t stop there. Since then, we’ve been learning how to make it even better. As of 2019, we’re proud to announce that there’s a new recipe in town. The new Impossible Burger is tastier, juicier and more nutritious -- featuring 30% less sodium and 40% less saturated fat than our current recipe and just as much protein as 80/20 ground beef from cows. 100% more delicious and more versatile than ever.

WHAT ARE THE KEY DIFFERENCES AND WHY?

Our new recipe is better in every way: taste, texture, nutrition, versatility. To do this, we added (and removed) some key ingredients.

We swapped wheat protein with soy protein -- higher in “protein quality” (a more complete selection of essential amino acids), beefier in texture, and with just a bit of dietary fiber. Have concerns about soy? Read this post from our VP of Health and Nutrition, Dr. Sue Klapholz, who has researched its health implications extensively. 

We added methylcellulose, a plant-based culinary binder commonly found in ice cream, sauces, and jams. Methylcellulose makes the new recipe juicer, and easier to handle -- whether raw or cooked. We also added sunflower oil, which reduces the amount of total and saturated fat in the Impossible Burger.

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN THE NEW RECIPE?

Like the original recipe, the new Impossible Burger is made mostly of water and plant proteins with heme. Here’s the full ingredient list (contains soy):

Water, Soy Protein Concentrate, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Natural Flavors, 2% or less of: Potato Protein, Methylcellulose, Yeast Extract, Cultured Dextrose, Food Starch Modified, Soy Leghemoglobin, Salt, Soy Protein Isolate, Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E), Zinc Gluconate, Thiamine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1), Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Niacin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Vitamin B12

WHAT ARE THE NUTRITION FACTS OF THE NEW RECIPE?
