UNREAL TASTE. REAL INGREDIENTS

The Beyond Burger is the world's only burger that looks, cooks, and tastes like ground beef from cows but is made entirely from plants, without GMOs, soy, or gluten. The Beyond Burger packs more protein and iron than beef and is a cholesterol free food, with less saturated fat than beef. A 1/4lb Beyond Burger sold in grocery stores has 4 grams of saturated fat and 22 grams of total fat, compared to 9 grams of saturated fat and 23 grams of total fat in a 1/4 lb 80/20 beef burger.
