Taste test – Beyond Burger .v. Impossible Burger

‘Innovative’

Listing Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods as market leaders, the article claims: “These innovative products are made with plants but ‘bleed’ just like real meat with the help of beet juice.”

Ken Harris, Managing Partner at Cadent Consulting Group, told CNBC that these products are aimed at meat eaters as well as veggies and vegans.

He added: “In 2018, meat alternatives are really going to launch.

“It tastes good. It hasn’t in the past.”
