Understanding i am in the minority however i cannot comprehend why a person who does not consume meat would want something that is supposed to look and taste like meat?
Either eat meat or don't eat it. Fine either way but fake meat?
On another note, does anyone think the stock has upside? it's been on quite the run.
I think that the primary purpose of making non-meat foods that have the flavor and texture of meat is to help meat eaters who are transitioning to a more plant based diet. I can't imagine someone who was raised as a vegan trying to get their seitan to mimic a flank steak!
There is a vegan Chinese restaurant near me that specializes in mimicking meat dishes with plant protein. There are some pretty interesting and tasty imitations on their menu.
That said, after the Beyond Beef burger experience, my first thoughts was... I can't wait to have a properly charred beef burger! I just noticed that Beyond Burger has announced a new "reformulated," recipe that more closely resembles hamburger. I'm in no hurry to check it out.
