This week at the International Consumer Electronics Show, Impossible Foods is serving up Impossible Pork Made from Plants and Impossible Sausage Made from Plants -- the startup’s first all-new products since the blockbuster Impossible Burger debuted in 2016.
WATCH A VIDEO ABOUT IMPOSSIBLE PORK
Impossible Pork is a gluten-free, plant-based ground meat that can be used in any recipe that calls for ground pork from pigs. Characteristics of Impossible Pork include:
Taste: Impossible Pork is applicable in any ground meat dish, including spring rolls, stuffed vegetables, dumplings, wontons or sausage links. Like ground meat from pigs, Impossible Pork is characterized by its mild savory flavor, adding depth and umami richness without being gamey or overpowering.
Nutrition: Impossible Pork contains no gluten, no animal hormones and no antibiotics. It has 16g protein, 3mg iron, 0mg cholesterol, 13g total fat, 7g saturated fat and 220 calories in a 4oz serving. Conventional 70/30 pork from animals contains 17g protein, 1mg iron, 86mg cholesterol, 32g total fat, 11g saturated fat and 350 calories in a 4oz serving.
Versatility: Impossible Pork is easy to cook in the steamer, oven, char-broiler, flat-top grill or sauté pan. Chefs can use Impossible Pork in recipes from stir-fry to meatballs to dim sum or links. Impossible Pork is designed to be eligible for kosher and halal certification if produced in a kosher- or halal-certified plant.
In addition to providing an exclusive first taste of Impossible Pork at CES, Impossible Foods is launching Impossible Sausage -- a savory meat that pairs with traditional breakfast accompaniments or steals the show as a center-of-the-plate delicacy at any meal. The plant-based, pre-seasoned product can be used in any recipe or dish that calls for animal-derived sausage.
Impossible Sausage contains no gluten, no animal hormones and no antibiotics. A raw, 2oz serving has 7g protein, 1.69mg iron, 0mg cholesterol, 9g total fat, 4g saturated fat and 130 calories. A 2oz serving of conventional Jimmy Dean’s raw pork sausage made from pigs contains 7g protein, 0.36mg iron, 40mg cholesterol, 21g total fat, 7g saturated fat and 220 calories.
Impossible Sausage will debut in late January exclusively at 139 Burger King® restaurants in five test regions: Savannah, Ga.; Lansing, Mich.; Springfield, Ill.; Albuquerque; and Montgomery, Ala. The all-new, limited-time-only Impossible™ Croissan’wich® features a toasted croissant, egg, cheese and a seasoned plant-based sausage from Impossible Foods. This test makes Burger King® restaurants the first restaurant to sell Impossible Sausage in a breakfast sandwich. Click here to read more about the Impossible Croissan’wich.
