GET TO KNOW US
What is Impossible Pork?
Impossible Pork is meat made from plants, for people who love meat. It’s perfect in all your favorite ground pork dishes as a replacement for pork from pigs, but is made without any animal hormones or antibiotics.
What is in Impossible Pork?
Like ground pork from pigs, Impossible Pork provides proteins, fats, and micronutrients such as vitamins and essential minerals. The key difference? Our ingredients are derived from plants, not pigs.
Protein comes from soy and potatoes, flavor comes from heme (the molecule that makes meat taste meaty), coconut and sunflower oils make it sizzle on the griddle, and methylcellulose and food starch (common culinary binders found in sauces, jams and soup) hold it together so you can make anything you want -- lettuce wraps, tacos, shumai, dumplings, meatballs and more!
Is Impossible Pork vegan?
Impossible Pork is made from plants, without any ingredients from animal sources. Our products are made for vegans, meat eaters and everyone in between!

At Impossible Foods, we aren’t trying to convince people to eat more veggies or fruits -- our mission is to give people delicious, sustainable and nutrient-rich versions of their favorite meats so they eat less meat from animals.

However, as far as the term “healthy” goes, our bodies need a diverse diet.

It is important to get the recommended amount of daily vitamins, nutrients and protein by adding in a variety of these types of foods into your diet (and treat yourself to Impossible Pork when you want a satisfying, protein-rich meal!).
