It seems when something new appears on the market and claims to be healthy, people flock to buy it. This appears to be the case with these new meatless burgers. They are being heavily promoted on national media across North America. Fast food outlets like A&W and Tim Hortons are already on the band wagon in Canada. What could possibly be wrong eating a meatless burger. It has to be healthier than a greasy meat burger, right! After all it’s made from plants and that has to be better for you. You know the old adage your mother told you from childhood, eat your vegetables, they are good for you. However, you might want to check out the ingredients in these so called healthy alternatives before you decide to consume one. I’m not going to list everything that goes into making this meatless meat, you can look it up on line as I did. I will tell you there are many ingredients that I have never heard of. One ingredient in particular stood out for me, ” Pesticide Glyphosate” used in the Impossible Burger. The major issue that concerns me was salt content, very high compared with regular meat. One comparison was a Walmart beyond burger salt content 330 gms regular meat burger 30gms. I’m not claiming these are all solid facts, nevertheless, it would be most prudent to check for yourself before eating one. Trusting large corporation that tell you it’s good for you is probably not a wise decision.
God Bless and keep reading (I almost said keep eating!!!)
