Curious what all the fuss is about with The Impossible Burger? We will be grilling some up on Tuesday, April 10 from 1PM-3PM so stop by for a taste! (all restaurant industry peeps are welcome)
After receiving requests from several restaurants, Produce Express now offers the Impossible Burger- a meatless burger that "bleeds", sears, and tastes like a real beef burger. Since its introduction in 2016, the Impossible Burger, has been added to hundreds of menus across the states from burger joints to high end restaurants like Nishi in New York and Jardinière in San Francisco.
We will offer the Impossible Burger two ways:
- Pre-formed Patties– 40/4oz burgers (10# case), $126.75.
- Bulk Ground- great for meatballs, tacos, a variety of ground meat applications, "meat" sauces, customizing the form and thickness of your patties, and more. 20# case, $247.75.
The creators of the Impossible Burger spent five years researching the texture and flavor of beef. The result is a rich and decadent meatless burger that will satisfy vegetarians and appeal to meat eaters. The ingredients include: (1) wheat protein for firmness and chew, (2) potato protein allows the burger to hold water and transition from a softer state to a more solid state during cooking (it can be cooked to any temperature), (3) coconut oil for fat (4) heme for the "meat" flavor and “bleeding” effect. Heme is an iron-containing molecule that occurs naturally in plants and animals. The protein, iron, and fat content in the Impossible Burger are comparable to conventional 80/20 ground beef. Please visit their website for full ingredient list, nutritional information, environmental benefits, and more details about heme in the Impossible Burger.
