Media release: Revolutionary new vegan burger that looks, cooks and tastes like beef causes a frenzy
The Beyond Burger, the world’s first plant-based burger that looks and tastes like animal meat has recently become available in Australia, causing a frenzy among vegans, vegetarians and ethically conscious consumers.
The Cruelty Free Shop Company Director Jessica Bailey said the Beyond Burger looks exactly like a raw beef patty and is a “game-changing” food.
“Beyond Meat has manufactured a revolutionary vegan burger that has all the juicy deliciousness of a traditional burger without the health, environmental and animal rights issues of animal-based meat. It’s packed with 20g of plant-based protein, from peas, and even appears to bleed from the beetroot in the patty,” Jessica said.
Jessica said it was a viable alternative product for meat lovers.
“Now that we have a plant-based burger that looks, cooks and tastes exactly like beef, there’s no reason for people to eat animals. Times have changed and vegans no longer eat boring, bland food.”
It took seven years for Beyond Meat to develop the Beyond Burger. It’s GMO, gluten and sugar free and its nutritional properties are very impressive when compared to beef patties.
