Can't see anyone having a beef with that.

'plant-based meat offerings'

It's a bit late in the day actually, they're quite common (and really quite good too) here.

Now in Burger King. Great worries among members of Her Majesty 's Vegan Constabulary and HMVC (Omniverous Branch) that they are cooked - the horror!- on the same outplayed as meat burgers.

Sounds really yummy,

It is made of 21 ingredients, according to its website, including genetically modified soy protein concentrate, coconut oil, sunflower oil and other items most people have never heard of, such as cultured dextrose, soy protein isolate and zinc gluconate

Because meat burgers are 100% top grade steak, of course.

They are when I make them! Buy them at Burger King and you take your chances but before you rush into buying Rebel Burgers check out some of the ingredients! Cultured Dextrose would be a good place to start.

As a carnivore I'm starting to feel oppressed by all these vegetarian "burgers" and "sausages". Where can I get meaty sprouts?

JohnIlly - 12 Jan 2020 19:55:11 (#9 of 19)

Cultured Dextrose would be a good place to start.

Nobody wants pig-ignorant dextrose, do they?

I shall certainly eat just as many of these burgers as I do standard burgers from Burger King or Macdonalds.

Cultured Dextrose

I think he directed Sunshine On Leith.

Occasionally when there are no other options I go to Burger King or McDonalds and remind myself how bad they are.

Some of these ads are really stupid. In TINY TINY print you can hardly read it'll say something like "cooked on the same grill as our regular burgers".

If you wear leather shoes then the same inconsistency applies.

You can say that again.

A left and right pair!

Eating fewer meat isn't just about not being mean on the animals, there's aggregate environmental benefits from reduced livestock numbers and personal health benefits regarding less sat fats as well

Ploughed feilds do suffer from winter's rainstorms though. Pasture doesn't end up in the rivers and seas.

I'd be interested to see if these non-meat alternatives actually take less energy and resources to produce than animal meat. They appear to be so processed.

Also, from a health and digestive point of view, those ingredients look rank.
