Doctor Reviews Meatless Burgers | Impossible, Beyond & More!

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 13 มิ.ย. 2019
  • After my successful 30-day vegan challenge I decided to give you an in-depth look into this new meatless burger or vegan burger craze! I ordered five meatless burgers and a single beef one for comparison's sake. I will say these burgers are technically not vegan because I included cheese and the brioche bun but they are still vegetarian! I love cheese. Let me know if you've tried any of these!
    Burgers Included in this Review
    - Impossible Burger
    - Beyond Burger
    - Quinoa Burger
    - Black Bean Burger
    - Beef Burger
    - Sweet Potato Burger

    Come on, what part of a regular burger being the most unhealthy food don't you understand? Don't even try to compair ingredients, you will fail. Just let it as it is, a fun taste comparison!

    I’m curious as to why so many vegans/vegetarians want something that tastes and feels like meat. I’m not trying to offend anyone, I’m trying to educate myself so I would be grateful for any replies.

    Personally, I don't see a problem enjoying traditional (beef) burgers within a reasonable margin of consumption. Proteins aside, how do the vege burgers compare in amino acids? Are they adequate? Should someone supplement? Thanks.

    Vegetarianism, as long as it’s processed food free, is where it’s at for me! That along with going gluten free for allergy reasons have allowed me to lose 65 pounds so far this year.

    Great call looking at those all important nutrition facts! Too few people do. Just like they fail to twist the wrist and read the ingredients. If they did comparisons they'd see how often chemicals are substituted for foods that would harm us less (dextrose causes migraines and is used to substitute for sugar as an example). Too many times people read the advertising, "Same recipe since 1892" and believe it. They never bother to turn the bar/jar or can over and see that something like malodextrin or soy lecithin wasn't around back in the day. Eating vegan or bio or anything else they want to label it to sound up-and-coming only works well if you stop trying to make things taste like what they aren't. Food chemistry is an interesting hobby but it is not a healthy lifestyle choice.

    I tried "ground" Beyond Meat this week. Made 3 burgers. I thought they were pretty good. Not quality beef good, but passable. Given the calories, sodium, and even saturated fat compare to beef, and excluding possible environmental benefits, does Beyond (or Impossible) offer any benefits over beef? In other words, is beef still worse for you than Beyond?

    Did the nutrition facts at the beginning include the whole burger, or just the patty? Two had sauces, which may explain the unexpectedly worse nutritional values of some of the meat replacements. Just a thought.

    I don’t think vegan burgers are ‘health’ foods, regular burgers are also not healthy and both should very much be treated like an indulgence. I do think choosing a vegan burger over a regular burger is so much better for the environment and it prevents animal suffering. Even if the taste might not completely be there, I still think it’s worth it to chose the vegan one over the regular burger. Because why are your taste buds worth more than the environment and therefore more worth than the life of humans in the future? If we keep on going like this, there will be serious consequences and a lot of people will die.

    I'm vegetarian, so I'm biased, but I did have a quinoa burger at a pub once and it was honestly amazing.
    I also have made some quinoa "meat"balls and they are.. so damn good lol. The texture of regular quinoa is definitely an acquired taste, but something about when the quinoa is sizzled in a pan, giving it some crispiness just makes it SO much better and actually good. Definitely recommend.
    The thing with non-meat burgers and replacements is that you have to get it out of your mind that it's going to taste like meat. It's not lol. But if you find the right brand of premade stuff or the right recipe to make your own, they can be delicious as a replacement and not a substitute.

  • edgar2prado
    edgar2prado 10 วันที่ผ่านมา

    No surprises. The people making these burgers have not gone to the final extremes to make them healthy. Just trying to fool people who still want meat. Why not try to hit two important targets and forget about the "fooled ya" factor. Namely delicious and as healthy as can be. I'm sure there is a market for that.

  • edgar2prado
    edgar2prado 10 วันที่ผ่านมา

    0:55 This is idiotic. Mix potassium chloride with the sodium chloride. 1/2 (K) to 1(Na) is a good bet that will almost certainly not be able to kill anyone. That will lower the impact of the burger in raising blood pressure. And it will be very difficult (if not impossible) to taste any difference. WTF is wrong with the people who make these burgers? The monstrous sodium to potassium imbalance is already there. What is wrong with trying to ameliorate it? Too afraid of killing people with terribly weird metabolisms, or some idiot on a potassium sparing diuretic? You are already killing people with excess sodium. The difference is that people accept it as the status quo.

    Dr Mike, you called one of the veggie burgers a "great" burger yet gave it 3 stars and then you specifically say the beef is not a great burger, but you gave it a higher rating. Perhaps you have some sort of bias going on.

    Should probably clarify the body's need for protein. Many people may be getting way more than they need and it seems like this is encouraging people to get even more.

    I’ve had the impossible and beyond. I agree. The impossible has the texture but the taste is not very pleasing. Would not buy again. I didn’t think the beyond necessarily had the texture, and it certainly doesn’t taste like beef. But it did taste good and I would buy that one again.

      Joyce G. veganism is a way of life based on ethical choices regarding the exploitation of animals . A plant-based or 'vegan' diet is a term not necessarily based on ethics it just describes the diet. It's confusing.

    I would just like to remind you that with the exception of the Impossible and Beyond burgers, many of them aren't attempting to "fool you". It's to give meatless eaters burger options. Now, the Impossible and Beyond are catered more toward meat lovers who want to lower their meat consumption but love the taste or meatless individuals who miss the taste of meat. Just an aside from a vegetarian who exclusively orders the sweet potato and black bean burgers from Bareburger.

    • hampuztt
      hampuztt 15 วันที่ผ่านมา

      @Not Just JET It is demonstrably proven that dietary cholesterol also increases your LDL cholesteral and to deny that is basically anti science at this point. Also, what is bad with foods taking longer to digest? We have an overweight problem not a underweight problem. Also is getting very slightly more protein worth significantly increased risk in heart disease?

    • Not Just JET
      Not Just JET 15 วันที่ผ่านมา

      @hampuztt do some more research please. Plant based protein takes longer for the body to process (it is not as bioavailable as meat protein). Also HDL cholesterol is good for you and necessary for a healthier bloodstream.

    • hampuztt
      hampuztt 15 วันที่ผ่านมา

      Indeed, plant protein do not come with cholesterol, heme iron and usually with lower amounts of saturated fats so plant proteins are essentially superior to animal protein
