I tried Pizza Hut’s Beyond Meat sausage pizza. It’s good enough to ditch meat

{ object.primary_image.title }}

It’s time we question every animal ingredient to decide if it’s really necessary to the dining experience. Fast food is being taken over by meat alternatives. Impossible meat is now served at Burger King, White Castle, and Starbucks. Meanwhile, Beyond Meat can be found on the menus of Dunkin’ Donuts and Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr.—and perhaps KFC soon . Even McDonald’s, which has held out the longest, has teased a new McPlant burger. Read Full Story

Plant-based burgers aren’t a health food. That’s a good thing

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The point is to get people to stop eating meat, not fix their diets. It’s been a few years since the Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat burgers began showing up in grocery stores and restaurants. Despite their popularity, critics note that high-tech meat alternatives don’t exactly deserve a health halo . Perhaps in response, Impossible Foods r eleased its 2.0 version in 2019 , with 36% less sodium and 43% less saturated fat. Late last year, Beyond Meat announced its plans to debut a newer, leaner patty with less saturated fat as well. Read Full Story

The fast food giant’s shift toward plant-based meat could have major implications for the growing sector—but it’s not quite clear where this specific plant-based meat is coming from. As one of the world’s largest buyers of beef—the most climate-damaging food on the planet—McDonald’s is working to reduce emissions by supporting regenerative agriculture . But it’s also launching a new “McPlant” plant-based burger, something that could also make a difference if it can scale up. Read Full Story

When will we reach peak meat?

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The year that animal protein consumption begins to decline might be sooner than you think. A decade ago, companies such as Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods hadn’t yet started selling their ultrarealistic plant-based burgers to omnivores. But within the next decade, meat alternatives are likely to capture so much of the market that North America will reach “peak meat,” and the consumption of animal protein will start to decline.

Taco Bell was always good for vegetarians—now it’s adding plant-based meat

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Taco Bell’s bean burritos have appealed to vegetarians and vegans for decades, but the chain now is seeing the value in adding plant-based meat to its menu. Long before the Impossible Whopper at Burger King and Beyond Meat chicken at KFC , Taco Bell filled a fast-food gap for vegetarians and vegans with its easy ability to swap beans for beef and its “fresco” style modification, which subs pico de gallo for dairy toppings such as sour cream and cheese. The company even once said it wouldn’t pursue adding plant-based options from Impossible or Beyond, despite growing interest from other fast-food eateries in those menu additions, instead focusing on its own vegetarian offerings that have been available for decades.
