Good news plant-based friends, yet another major fast-food chain is introducing more plant-based goodness to their menu! Earlier this year, Burger King began testing a vegetarian option, using a plant-based patty from Impossible Foods. On Monday, April 29, 2019, Burger King confirmed that they will be introducing the delicious plant-based patty to all locations nationwide by the end of the year. While this is in the United States of America for now, according to Narcity, “Burger Kings New Plant-based Impossible Whopper Will Likely Come to Canada This Year“.

Wow! @BurgerKing is trialing the #ImpossibleWhopper. This is will be the first fast food giant to carry the next generation of #plantbased meat. First line of @NYTimes article: “Would you like that Whopper with or without beef?” Expect those questions to become standard over the next 20 years! https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/01/technology/burger-king-impossible-whopper.html #Vegan #Tech #Food #ImpossibleBurger #Vegetarian #ClimateChange #AnimalRights #Meat #Burger #Whopper #BurgerKing
While The Impossible Burger has been around for a couple of years now, they have been working every year to make it better than ever. Earlier this year, in January 2019 they introduced their new recipe. According to their new statement about their new Impossible burger, it is said to be “tastier, juicier, and more nutritious — featuring 30% less sodium and 40% less saturated fat than our current recipe and just as much protein as 80/20 ground beef fr0m cows”.

I’m pretty excited about this—as someone who admittedly enjoys meat a great deal, but who has also come to be aware of the ethical and environmental problems it presents, a plant-based alternative is incredibly exciting! #ImpossibleWhopper https://t.co/tODKUVm6PM
