Yeah, I'm sure they're going to clean a special grill for a customer that doesn't want his Impossible Burger fried in beef grease. Yessiree.
I heard this too in my local newspaper. Can anyone confirm if this is true?

blue_green_gold Do you think the non-broiler method might be microwaving?

JesseG Saw this on their website. I think it is best to request the non-broiler method of preparation. They actually have that option. I tried it myself and I think it's delicious and worth every dime since it's more expensive than their usual burger.

Tom I had an Impossible Whopper within the past week or two. I thought it was good, although more expensive than BK's other veggie burger (which I think is made with a Morningstar Farms patty). Granted, it's probably not health food.

The Impossible Burger does contain GMO soy, but it doesn't contain any MSG (monosodium glutamate): https://faq.impossiblefoods.com/hc/e...e-ingredients-


The Impossible Burger contains no animal flesh. If people choose to eat a non-meat burger (albeit with some incidental beef grease) instead of a meat burger (which is 100% beef flesh and grease), isn't this an improvement?

Citrus333 Excellent comments, James.

And FWIW, I've tried that Impossible Burger (not at BK) and found it inedible. There are better veggie burgers out there. But if it gets people to eat fewer animals, it likely makes them think. And thinking often leads to becoming veg*n.

James N. Dawson Most restaurants that offer vegan options probably don't use vegan/vegetarian dedicated cookware, or clean their surfaces every time, and never have. If vegans start asking for that, they may be less likely to serve vegan options and it'd be a significant net loss, for animals. Restaurant managers may give up trying, with a disgust for "fussy vegans".

The Impossible Burger is a major step in the right direction, but in my opinion, because it was tested on rats, which were later killed and their remains studied, it's not quite vegan enough for me. It may be a good option for omnivores trying to be more humane, or vegans who are more "pragmatic". I'm trying to see the half-full glass in it, even though I chose to abstain myself.

We vegetarians aren't really the primary consumers of plant-based burgers. According to Impossible Foods (makers of the Impossible Burger), about 95% of people who order plant-based burgers are omnivores: https://www.self.com/story/impossibl...er-beyond-meat . This is a good thing - we want people to eat less meat and more plants.
