Where to Get the Impossible Burger in San Diego
The Impossible Burger is a meatless burger with a twist – it looks, tastes, smells, and even “bleeds” like a normal burger. The burger is made from all-natural ingredients like wheat, coconut oil, and potatoes. What sets the Impossible Burger apart from other meatless patties is that it uses a unique ingredient called heme. Heme is a basic building block of life, and is found in plants and meat alike. This ingredient is what sets the Impossible Burger apart from other meatless patties, making it hard to believe you’re eating an all-plant burger.
Aside from its delicious taste, the Impossible Burger can also brag about being a incredibly environmentally responsibly created food source. Beef cattle in the United States require about 11,000 gallons of water each year, and heavily contribute to greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. With the Impossible Burger, we get the satisfaction of a juicy burger without any of the environmental concerns. Impossible, the company behind the Impossible Burger, has received over $250 million in investments, and have attracted the likes of wealthy investors like Bill Gates. The burger has been featured in highly rated restaurants around the country, and now we San Diegans can try out this unique burger for ourselves.
