Plant-based brand Beyond Meat has announced the launch of two new vegan burgers that are ‘juicier’ than its flagship patty.

The new meat analogs will contain a significantly lower amount of saturated fat in comparison to beef.

Less saturated fat than 80/20 beef

Beyond Meat says one of the new burgers has 35 percent less saturated fat compared to 80/20 beef. The other, which it described as its ‘most nutritious patty yet’ contains 55 percent less saturated fat than 80/20 beef. 

Both burgers will ‘boast the same savory taste profile’ and have fewer calories than 80/20 beef. Morever, they will have ‘B vitamins and minerals comparable to the micronutrient profile of beef’.

‘Coming 2021’

‘Delicious plant-based meats’

In a statement sent to PBN, Beyond Meat’s CEO Ethan Brown said he was ‘thrilled’ to introduce the new burgers.

He said: “It speaks so clearly to what our brand and company stands for.

“Our commitment is to provide consumers with absolutely delicious plant-based meats that are better for people and the planet. No sacrifice required.”

‘Nutritional needs’

Brown added: “I’m immensely proud of our team’s ability to make such strong advances in taste, juiciness and nutrition through our Rapid and Relentless Innovation program. 

“Just as you can find different varieties of ground beef… Consumers will now have more choice to satisfy their individual nutritional needs and preferences.” 

The new patties are expected to launch across the U.S in ‘early’ 2021. Beyond Meat will host an exclusive preview in Los Angeles from November 18-20 to unveil the new iterations.
