Local Burger Kings now carry the Impossible Whopper, so naturally I had to try one.
It was excellent, better than Beyond Burgers- although Burger King has a tangy
dressing they put on their burgers. That probably made some difference.
It was tasty, but pricey:
Whopper $4.19
Impossible Whopper $5.39

Not really much benefits in nutrition is it?

But of course would be huge benefits to the environment and sustainability of water supplies, etc

I'm sure the science and tech will get better over time

LOL.... yeah, it was definitely a soy-based product. Burger King Whoppers have been a guilty pleasure over the years. I usually get the Whopper Junior, but the Impossible is only available as a full sized Whopper for now.
I grew up on a farm, butchered a large pig, one time. And a steer, one time.
At that point I decided to pursue a career in city life :)
But I know real beef when I taste it.
Next I'm going to try the Boca Burger again, which is made by Kraft and also soy based.
I decided I haven't given it a fair shake. It needs to be on a sesame seed bun and slathered with
mayo-ketchup dressing with a sliced onion for a fair comparison.
This is a tough job, but somebody's got to do it.
That was quite a gap up by BYND this morning... just got an upgrade I see.

Beyond Meat, Inc. (BYND)

Beyond Meat stock jumps 7% after upgrade on potential for expanding restaurant presence

Beyond Meat Inc. stock jumped 7% in Tuesday premarket trading after the plant-based protein company was upgraded at JPMorgan on the potential for additional pilot testing of Beyond Meat products at large quick-service chains. Beyond Meat already has burgers at Restaurant Brands International Inc.'s Tim Hortons chain, Dunkin' Donuts , Aramark , and Uno on the roster. None of these sales are figured into the guidance. "We thus think the potential for sales to keep beating consensus estimates is legitimate," JPMorgan said. Sales have also accelerated, which implies that diners like the product.

As you show, nutrition is not the motivation for this marketplace generally.

It is the significantly lower carbon footprint of plant-based proteins.

Impossible Foods has Burger King. Beyond Meat has Whole Foods. The ultimate prize, McDonald’s, is still up for grabs.

The Amazon is burning because the world eats so much meat

cnn.com

(CNN) While the wildfires raging in the Amazon rainforest may constitute an "international crisis," they are hardly an accident.

The vast majority of the fires have been set by loggers and ranchers to clear land for cattle. The practice is on the rise, encouraged by Jair Bolsonaro, Brazil's populist pro-business president, who is backed by the country's so-called "beef caucus."

While this may be business as usual for Brazil's beef farmers, the rest of the world is looking on in horror.
So, for those wondering how they could help save the rainforest, known as "the planet's lungs" for producing about 20% of the world's oxygen, the answer may be simple. Eat less meat.

Brazil is the world's largest exporter of beef, providing close to 20% of the total global exports, according the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) -- a figure that could rise in the coming years.

Last year the country shipped 1.64 million tonnes of beef, the highest volume in history, according to the Brazilian Beef Exporters Association (Abiec), an association of more than 30 Brazilian meat-packing companies.

The growth of Brazil's beef industry has been driven in part by strong demand from Asia -- mostly China and Hong Kong. These two markets alone accounted for nearly 44% of all beef exports from Brazil in 2018, according to the USDA.
