Beyond Meat launches Beyond Burger 2.0
Beyond Burger 2.0 is the latest product innovation from plant-based protein company Beyond Meat. The company says the new, meatier patty is the “next step forward toward the perfect build of meat from plants.”
Peas, brown rice and mung beans provide the protein in the Beyond Burger 2.0, and coconut oil has been used to ensure “mouth-watering juiciness”. As in the original Beyond Burger, beets provide the meaty red hue.
Beyond Meat says what makes the Beyond Burger 2.0 different than the original Beyond Burger in the following ways:
- Meatier taste and texture – the blend of pea, rice and mung bean protein provides a more fibrous texture
- It’s a complete source of protein, delivering all nine essential amino acids
- Less saturated fat
- OK Kosher certified
The new Beyond Burger 2.0 has 20 grams of protein per patty, as does it predecessor. It also does not contain gluten, soy or GMO ingredients.
The Beyond Burger 2.0 patty is available at Canadian A&W locations and Carl’s Jr. locations in the U.S.
