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?

Why would it have to taste like meat in order to taste good? That is one thing I don't get about meat eaters. Food can taste good and not taste like meat.

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.

What I got out of this vid: The quinoa burger is a better choice than Impossible or Beyond. Get the 3 star close-to-burger-ish experience, much better macronutrient profile. Guess I'll be seeing if we can find some quinoa patties at the local store.

I thought the impossible burger used Heme to make it "bleed" and give it that iron taste. Did you sense any of those elements?

Why don’t you actually try a whole food plant based (WFPB) diet. It’s much healthier than that fake “vegan” processed shit.

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.

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.

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.

Dr. Mike just said saturated fat is bad. That's a bit surprising, don't people nowadays say it's just a myth that saturated fats are bad for you? Also, he's calling sodium a macro nutrient. Wth?

I ate a vegan burger for the first time earlier this year. It was hideous. Truly an insult to burgers everywhere.

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.

Dr Mike, we don't eat vegan burgers because they're healthy. We eat them because we don't want to eat an animal.

@DudeMan 3 I think those are all great points tr o consider. Before I say anything else, you dont have to worry about dissuading someone from x or y diet. Maybe someone could use the wake up call to reevaluate their choices.

No offense to any vegans out there, but I don't see the reason why it is considered unethical to consume animal meat and products. I'm totally fine with anyone that is a vegan, this is just me putting my opinion on the topic. Scientifically speaking, the human body evolved to become omnivorous so that we could get our daily dietary needs from both plant life and animal life. That being said, you could consume only plant life if you wanted to which is fine with me, but it also makes it ethical to consume animal meat and products. It coincides with the circle of life. We are technically predators just like many other species of animals. This means that, depending on the lifestyle you choose, feeding on animals is necessary to survival. Now I'm not trying to dissuade anyone from being vegan, I'm just explaining my point of view. If you disagree with what I'm saying, feel free to give any feedback.
