Beyond Impossible Dog Food
« on: July 23, 2019, 2017 UTC »
Appearing on Friday’s AgriTalk, University of California/Davis professor Frank Mitloehner said the ingredients in two of America’s leading plant-based alternative proteins are quite similar to those found in dog food.

Explaining to rather stunned AgriTalk host Chip Flory, Mitloehner said, “When you look at Impossible Burger or Beyond Meat, you will find that they have 21 or 22 highly-processed ingredients. In fact, so processed that you are hard pressed in identifying the difference between those items, versus let's say, pet food.”

On his Twitter account (@GHGGuru), Mitloehner posted a trivia question asking viewers if they could distinguish the ingredients for the Impossible Burger, Beyond Meat, and a specific brand of dog food. He said the tweet received thousands of responses, most with the wrong answer.

My wife likes the Burger King veggie burger. I wonder if I can teach her to fetch?

Those burgers look pretty darn good. I may have .to break down and give on a try. I'll be doing it to save the environment, of course.

How about a taste test with Alpo as the control food for both the dog food and meat categories? It's supposed to be both.

Bon appetit, Professor Fansome!
