Today Impossible Foods expanded its plant-based meat portfolio with a leaner version of its flagship Impossible Beef product: Impossible Beef Lite.
According to a press release, Impossible Beef Lite is designed to be better than lean ground animal beef, featuring 21 grams of protein, no trans fat or cholesterol, and 75% less saturated fat as well as 45% less total fat than 90/10 lean beef from cows. The nutrient-packed product is also a good source of fiber, iron, B vitamins, zinc, and potassium while featuring 33% less sodium than a competitor’s plant-based beef product.
“Impossible Beef Lite tastes, cooks and satisfies like lean ground animal beef, and makes for a flavorful, high-protein addition to numerous dishes like tacos, chilis, stir-frys, soups, and classic lasagna”, says Impossible.
“And like all Impossible Beef products, Impossible Beef Lite is a better choice for the planet than lean ground beef from cows — amounting to a fraction of the land use, water consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions.”
