Since Impossible and Beyond burgers came out, I cheered them from an environmental point of view but didn’t know if they would be more or less healthy than teal burgers. Maybe? But that’s a lot of coconut oil in them.
But Christopher Gardner at Stanford just published a decent study:
My takeaway is comparing them to red meat is not a high bar, but still, at least they seem to be a little better for people and far better for the planet.
But will people eat them? Any unintended consequences like people who would’ve eaten the black bean burger choosing these?
