    I'm always wary of "Natural Flavors" on ingredient labels. That could be beaver anal secretions.

    In the 70s we went to BK and brought back a Whopper w no meat for a vegetarian. That must have happened a lot since the counter person didn't bat an eye. I guess folks want to get rid of something "bad" but still have it. I quit salting my food back in the day , but had no inclination to use a substitute, so it strikes my as a little sideways. I really can't believe a bunch of "modified" ingredients will be healthier.

    That prob still tastes better than the bk we get in Britain. It tastes like a poor bbq burger then got kept warm in a broiler for a couple of hours

    The IB doesn't have a high hurdle if they are trying to nudge out what we get in the UK

    I picked up a pack of this a few months ago...It's still sitting in the back of my freezer. One of these days I will try it. Anybody tried this?

    Those sound organic. I'm OK with 'em.

    Many times. They're pretty good. They won't have you thinking you're eating a hamburger, but they are pretty hamburger like. Don't overcook them. My wife and daughter really like them. Had an impossible burger once at an upscale restaurant. It was closer to beef and I thought very good. There have been several threads about this

    These ingredients include: water, textured wheat protein, coconut oil, potato protein, natural flavors, 2 percent or less of: leghemoglobin (soy), yeast extract, salt, konjac gum, xanthan gum, soy protein isolate, vitamin E, vitamin C, thiamin (vitamin B1), zinc, niacin, vitamin B6, riboflavin (vitamin B2), and vitamin ...

    Xanthan gum comes from the planet Xanti. Its importation is Earth's only contact w Xanti after the unfortunate incident w "the Zanti Misfits" as featured in the ABC News documentary program the "Outter Limits".

    I first heard about this brand when questlove(roots/fallon) open a beyond cheesesteak stand at citizens bank park. All I hear is good things about the beyond cheesesteak, and we're talkin about a Philly crowd.

    I once had a gozillionaire tell me that the way to make a fortune is to manufacture something that has water as its first ingredient

    Well...I've recently read that, even with the small amount of soy, it's still GMO soy and has high levels of glyphosate...Roundup.

    Exactly, a "meat substitute".... If I want a hamburger, it will be made with genuine beef... (I reserve the right to eat a good hamburger on my birthday)

    Tried them, they taste okay, almost meat like. But, they are highly processed and real meat is probably a safer, healthier alternative...
