Although I know that there are loads of Beyond Meat Burger reviews online, I’m finally adding my own, because I just tried out the Beyond Meat burgers and oh wow, they are delicious!
Right, but the review doesn’t stop here, although if you came here to know if it’s good, then there’s not much else to read, is there? 😉 Because it’s just really really good!
Flavor and Vision
For me, I never needed to have the “real” meaty taste in any vegan sausages, burgers, or what-have-you, because I never missed meat. Beyond Burger, nonetheless, delivers an authentic meaty flavor that is jaw-dropping delightful. Even more, when I fried the patties they released a juice, much like animal meat does when it’s frying in the pan. That really took me by surprise.
Ethan Brown, the founder and CEO of Beyond Meat had a beautiful vision when he started this company, and judging by what I ate, I think he succeeded.
Any Doubts About Nutritional Value?
I’ve had people ask me in previous reviews, though, about the nutritional value of certain meat replacement products, and so I will include them in here as well. First and foremost, when you eat a meat replacement it is automatically of a higher nutritional value, simply because you’re dropping meat and lowering your cholesterol intake. Nonetheless, some products include soy, nuts, or gluten, and not everyone can or wants to eat any of these three ingredients, which is perfectly understandable.
As you can see, this list contains no harmful ingredients, and no soy, no gluten, and no GMO. Cholesterol is 0%! Pea protein is a complete protein, exceeding the minimum for all the essential amino acids.
If methylcellulose sounds worrisome to you, don’t fret. It is a chemical compound derived from cellulose and it is used to help maintain regular bowel movements. It’s not toxic.
Canola oil may be the only ingredient that might cause some concern, but the fact that it is expeller-expressed means that a healthier way to produce oil was used. Having canola oil as an ingredient probably explains why a serving of one burger contains 25% saturated fat.
You can fry or grill these patties or throw them on the barbecue. I fried mine and then toasted some bread. I spread some veganaise and mustard on the toasted slices, then placed the pattie on it, put melted vegan cheese on top, and added a slice of avocado. It was very simple, but incredibly good and quite filling.
Beyond Meat just got a new fan 🙂
If you haven’t tried it out yet, please do! The taste is mouthwatering good, I’m not exaggerating. Vegan or meat-eater, you can’t miss out on these patties. Apparently, they have fooled many die-hard meat-eaters into believing they were eating meat, and now I know why 😉
This is what I used for my sandwich:
