From Impossible Whoppers to McPlants, plant-based fast food items are a thing - and far more meat-eaters than vegans or vegetarians are ordering them.
While some restaurants just tried to survive the COVID-19 pandemic, others used the time to trade meat and dairy for fully plant-based menus.
Panda Express and Beyond Meat are teaming up to offer a plant-based version of the Asian chain's most popular dish, and I'm hooked.
If you rely on processed foods, or notice negative changes to your physical or mental health, the vegan diet may not be a good fit for you.
Beyond Meat rose as much as 16%, to $US144.78 a share, after Taco Bell announced it’s partnering with the faux-meat producer to explore plant based protein menu items on Thursday. Beyond Meat’s stock surge comes after a stellar 2020 which recorded a 65.3% yearly gain. The plant-based meat company has […]
A plant-based diet means eating more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds. You should minimise your intake of animal foods like meat, eggs, and dairy, but you don’t need to exclude these foods entirely. Research has found that a plant-based diet is very beneficial, as it can […]
Starbucks is selling a plant-based sandwich as part of a collaboration with Impossible Foods. The coffee giant’s revamped summer menu also includes two coffee-based cold brew beverages with almond milk foam topped with either cinnamon or dark cocoa. The menu reflects Starbucks’ efforts to become a more sustainable company. Visit […]
Plant-based “chicken” is the meat-alternative trend set to take over in 2020. KFC just launched a wider test of its Beyond fried “chicken,” and El Pollo Loco just rolled out Chickenless Pollo nationwide. There are several reasons that could explain why this boom is happening now: plant-based “chicken” may have […]
Impossible Foods unveiled a plant-based sausage product at the Consumer Electronics Show in early January. The company announced that Burger King would be testing a new breakfast sandwich made with the sausage, called the Impossible Croissan’wich. The Impossible Croissan’wich is being tested in 139 restaurants across five cities in February […]
On Wednesday, KFC and Beyond Meat announced an extended test release of Beyond fried chicken in two cities in February.

JPMorgan was among the first to issue a “buy” rating for Beyond Meat shares after its May 2 IPO, but the bank now holds a “more balanced risk/reward outlook” on the stock. Analyst Ken Goldman downgraded the plant-based-meat company to “neutral” from “overweight” in a Tuesday note, saying investors should […]
Beyond Meat is building the capabilities to create unique plant-based “meat” products for every fast-food chain possible, from fried chicken to meatballs. “I can’t remember when we’ve ever said no” to a chain’s idea for a new menu item, Beyond Meat’s chief growth officer, Chuck Muth, recently told Business Insider. […]
Beyond Meat and other plant-based “meat” companies are having a moment. To figure out which Beyond Meat product reigns supreme – and how they compare to the real meat versions – we taste-tested the Beyond Burger, Beyond Beef ground meat, and Beyond Sausage. The Beyond Sausage truly replicated the snap […]
Plant-based meat alternatives like those made by Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat have taken the world by storm, but they can trace their genesis back to Tofurky. Tofurky was invented by Seth Tibbott in 1995. Seth Tibbott, a vegetarian, lived in a treehouse for eight years to save money while […]
A vegan filed a class-action lawsuit against Burger King, TMZ reported on Monday, claiming the Impossible Whopper isn’t vegan as advertised. However, the Impossible Whopper is not advertised as vegan. Many plant-based “meat” options like Impossible and Beyond aren’t vegan or vegetarian when served at chain restaurants, as they’re often […]
A Bay Area startup is producing an alternative meat by relying on on a class of microbes that convert carbon dioxide into protein the same way plants do. The microbes produce a powder than could replace soy or pea protein in plant-based meat products. The conversion process was discovered by […]
McDonald’s is testing a new Beyond Meat “PLT” plant-based burger. The burger was only available at 28 McDonald’s locations in southern Ontario, Canada, but will expand to 52 restaurants starting January 14 and lasting 12 weeks.
