With this came things like our vegan tenders, meatless sausage, gluten-free chicken bites, cauliflower crust, and the iconic, plant-based Impossible Meat. Impossible Meat is scientifically proven to be tasty, which is why it’s a popular choice at Fresh Brothers. We’re here to delve into the history of Impossible Foods, the creator of Impossible Meat, and look at why it’s such an incredible option.
About the Brand
Impossible Foods is a brand dedicated to making meat, dairy, and fish products from plant sources. Why? In our current global climate, animal agriculture uses a huge amount of natural resources. By deriving tasty, meat-like foods from things like soy plants and yeast, they produce full meals using only a fraction of the land, water, and energy that meat would require. Impossible Foods debuted their Impossible Burger in 2016. Since then, the company has been nothing but a hit, quickly spreading in popularity at restaurants, fast food chains, and grocery stores.
Impossible’s crave-worthy taste was created by scientifically dissecting what makes meat taste like, well, meat. From there, they discovered that a molecule called heme is where the flavor’s at. Heme is an iron-containing compound that forms the non-protein part of biological molecules. Because it’s found in every plant as well as every animal, plant-based heme can be made by fermenting yeast.
Why Choose Impossible
Impossible Foods offer all the taste and nutrition of normal meat without any animal products. In fact, Impossible meats often contain a broader range of vitamins and minerals due to their plant sources! In particular, Impossible is a phenomenal brand to support and Fresh Brothers is proud to partner with them. Their goals to restore biodiversity and help reduce the effects of climate change are noble, and to make a difference without sacrificing great-tasting food is something Fresh Brothers can get behind. We appreciate that Impossible is working everyday to make the global food system more sustainable.
