Impossible Foods wants to do, well, the seemingly impossible: Transform plants into foods that retain the essence of the meat- and cheese- inspired dishes, without causing pollution and slaughter. The company collects proteins and nutrients from grains, greens and seeds and adds them to vitamins, fats, and amino acids to effectively reconstitute sustainable meats and dairy. The result is food that the company claims tastes like real meat, but without the cholesterol, antibiotics, and hormones that are increasing a byproduct of eating from the traditional food chain. The process requires fewer resources than the traditional farming process. For now, the company’s product line consists of just a cheeseburger, which is set to be released in the U.S. in 2016. Impossible Foods promises that its burgers look, smell, taste, and even sizzle like the real thing. The company hopes to create other foods that might make vegan life a snap for even die-hard carnivores.
