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 are vegan patties red?

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.
