Well folks, here you go, the ingredients in the “Impossible Burger” that is promoted by Gov. Polis:
Water, Soy Protein Concentrate, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Natural Flavors, 2% or less of: Potato Protein, Methylcellulose, Yeast Extract, Cultured Dextrose, Food Starch Modified, Soy Leghemoglobin, Salt, Soy Protein Isolate, Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E), Zinc Gluconate, Thiamine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1), Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Niacin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Vitamin B12.
According to the “Impossible Foods” website, “Genetic engineering is an essential part of our mission and our product ... We wouldn’t be able to make a product that rivals or surpasses beef on flavor, texture, nutrition, sustainability, versatility and accessibility without it. We use two key genetically engineered ingredients: heme (soy leghemoglobin) – the ‘magic’ molecule that makes meat taste like meat – and soy protein. We also source genetically engineered soy protein from farms in Iowa, Minnesota and Illinois that meet the highest standards for health, safety, and sustainability.”
Personally, governor, I will stick to my Colorado-raised beef, protect our open spaces and environment, promote our ranching heritage and support our Colorado economy. If you want to poison your body, be my guest!
