From today's Yahoo news...<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Company comes up with 'hybrid' hamburger<br><br>

What's a health-conscious burger lover to do? The real thing tends to have too many calories and too much fat, but meatless burgers seem to lack the flavor and consistency of real beef.<br><br><br><br>
St. Louis-based Solae LLC has come up with a solution, a patent-pending invention called SoleCina that involves both the process and the ingredients to produce either a "hybrid" meat part soy, part real meat or a completely meatless food that tastes like chicken, beef, pork or turkey.<br><br><br><br>
The company said both versions taste and feel to the mouth much like real meat, but are much healthier. For example, a hybrid burger dubbed the "Better Burger" by Solae has two-third the calories and half the fat and saturated fat as a burger of comparable size.<br><br><br><br>
SoleCina has been in the works for a decade. Details were introduced this week at a gathering of food scientists and technologists in Orlando, Fla.<br><br><br><br>
Solae is a $1 billion food innovation company that specializes in soy protein the company has more than a 50 percent share of the world's isolated soy protein food ingredient market...

I agree. As a Vegan I still find the idea as offensive as a regular burger and hate trying to swing people over for strictly "health" reasons, but part of me wonders if weeding people off like this will lead to better things. Either way, I found the article interesting and thought I'd share.
