Your Questions Answered
Why isn’t there any meat on the menu?

We are concerned about the environment, the welfare of animals and the health of our fellow humans. Meat and the meat industry is bad for all 3 of those things, for which we care deeply for.

I have celiac disease, are any of your foods gluten free?

What’s The Beyond Burger™

The Beyond Burger™ is the world’s first plant-based burger that looks, cooks, and tastes like a fresh beef burger. It has all the juicy, meat deliciousness of a traditional burger, but comes with the upsides of a plant-based meal. The Beyond Burger™ packs 20 g of plant-based protein and has no GMOs, soy or gluten.

Why A Burger From Plants That Aims To Replicate Meat?

Our belief is that the best way to get people to eat less meat is by giving them what they love–in this case, a juicy delicious burger – without so many of the health, sustainability, and animal welfare downside of a traditional animal – based burger.

Hang On…If This Isn’t Beef, Why Are The Burgers Red?

Well, we used beets to do that! Amazing, right! We wanted to keep the whole experience of cooking burger as similar as possible for our flexitarian fans, so we’ve worked very hard to create a burger that changes color as you cook it just like animal protein.

What Kind Of Protein Do You Use?

The primary source of protein in The Beyond Burger™ comes from peas. It’s soy, gluten and GMO free.

Why Does The Beyond Burger™ “Bleed”?

While we didn’t design The Beyond Burger™ to “bleed” per se, the beets we use to give the patty a red-meat appearance have led some in the media to remark that the burger “bleeds” beet blood.
