Dr Oz: 100% Plant-Based Meatless Burger
Dr Oz shared videos of a delicious-looking burger sizzling on a hot grill as it was cooked to perfection, and explained that the burgers we were looking at actually had more protein than the last burger each of us ate. How can he be so sure? It turns out the burger in the videos we were watching were 100% plant-based and contained no meat at all. How is that possible? Naturally, Dr Oz just had to find out, which is why he sent award-winning food journalist Mark Schatzker to find out.
Dr Oz: The Impossible Burger & Beyond Meat Beyond Burger
Bland, soggy, mushy, and grainy are some of the words that have often been used to describe veggie burgers and other “alternative” meats. It seemed impossible to create a meatless burger that tastes like real meat. Well, Silicon Valley is proving that it wasn’t so impossible after all. Two new start-ups have seemingly created the impossible: meatless meat that tastes like meat. First is the Impossible Burger which is a veggie burger that actually bleeds. It turns out the burger is now so popular, it’s nearly impossible to actually get your hands on one.
Then there’s Beyond Meat’s Beyond Burger which is already available in grocery stores. Mark was hoping to learn more, so he met Beyond Meat’s founder, Ethan Brown, at Whole Foods. Ethan explained that he wanted to change the protein at the center of the plate from animal protein to plant-based protein in order to solve some of the world’s biggest problems like human health and climate change.
