US-based Impossible Foods has released a vegan burger that is claimed to be free of gluten, animal hormones and antibiotics.

The product, called Impossible Burger 2.0, is kosher and halal-certified.

Impossible Foods chief operations officer and chief financial officer David Lee said: “Impossible Burger fans told us loud and clear they wanted a gluten-free burger that was at least as nutritious as meat from animals.

“Our new product delivers all the taste meat lovers crave, without compromise to nutrition or the planet.”

With 0 mg cholesterol, 14 grams of total fat and 240 calories in a quarter-pound patty, the new Impossible Burger contains bioavailable iron and protein as a comparable serving of ground beef from cows.

“Our new product delivers all the taste meat lovers crave, without compromise to nutrition or the planet.”

Currently, Impossible Burger is available in more than 5,000 locations in the US, as well as in certain restaurants across Hong Kong and Macau.

The plant-based company also plans to introduce the recipe in Singapore later this year and other markets in the future.

Based in Redwood City, California, Impossible Foods makes meat directly from plants with a much smaller environmental footprint than meat from animals.

Impossible Foods founder and CEO Dr Patrick O Brown said: “The newest Impossible Burger delivers everything that matters to hardcore meat lovers, including taste, nutrition and versatility.

“This is the plant-based meat that will eliminate the need for animals in the food chain and make the global food system sustainable.”

Earlier this month, restaurant chain Carl’s Jr included Impossible Foods’ 100% plant-based burger on its menu in a bid to attract vegans and vegetarians.

Impossible Foods plans to launch its flagship product in grocery stores later this year.
