The Impossible Burger is meat alternative that gets its meat-like qualities from a combination of plant-based ingredients, plus “meatiness” from a biotech-derived product. There is a lot of discussion about the product, and the internet has even questioned the safety of the biotechnology steps used in its creation. This episode discusses the Impossible Burger with Dr. Chana Davis, a scientist familiar with the product. We discuss questions about meat alternatives, processed food, and if this truly is a vegetable replacement. We also share thoughts on the future of food and if everything will someday be derived from a manufacturing process.
