You mean the ingredients listed right in the back of the box? I guess some would find flipping the box somewhat challenging.

And they are the first thing you see on the website when looking at product details.

Oh and this was quite interesting: 5 Chemicals Lurking in Plant-Based Meats

I am with CalgaryChef here I like to know what's in my food, even better when I know who farms it and how.
I am super picky with my meat and I rather not eat it than not know what's in there and where it came from (most of the time, while travelling I often have not much choice).

Interesting that those beyond meat patties don’t use soy, that they bother to mention it on their packaging is of interest though. “Does not contain mercury” or “Does not contain asbestos” as well as many other things could also legitimately be noted, but they chose to specifically point out the absence of soy.

Soy is becoming quite an issue. 1) more and more develop allergies to soy 2) soy is the product with the heaviest load of pesticides and herbicides when tested.

And to incorporate soy into a product resembling meat requires a very long and protracted hydration cycle and will always off gas as beany

Its barely even veggies,

More of an overpriced combination of throwaway byproduct filler, that someone managed to mask with some flavor chemicals so it fools people's mouths. This is worse than margarine. People are going to see their cholesterol go up and their body weight balloon up if they regularly eat this garbage.

They all want to save the earth from the bad cattle! And plant based is healthy right?

So you’d agree then that your posts are basically an appeal to authority and not based on any actual knowledge of the product you critiqued and called the consumers of weak and easily led?

People beware as there are some that are allergic to some plant based items. Got a friend that went into anaphylactic shock cause he had a plant based nutrient drink. But if it is a cow paddy worms would be my biggest worry and left long enough it will come with mushrooms already to go. Fry away
ACK ACK ACK
Enjoy your veggie burger ooops veggie pattie

While technically a grass, bamboo substitutes well for lumber, aka: wood cellulose. Processed wood cellulose is used in the manufacture of toilet paper. Does that mean these meatless patties are self-wiping after digestion? Enquiring minds want to know!

Only if you eat the wrapper too. These new beyond patties of what ever might be better for your trailer or motorhome to also digest

Offended vegan perhaps?

The average consumer is a programmed zombie no matter what they are buying.

This stuff is pure garbage and nothing else, to believe otherwise is completely ridiculous.

Who cares what it's made with.

Look at a jar of organic peanut butter, the only ingredient is organic peanuts, now go look at a label on a jar of kraft peanut butter and see how many ingredients are in that crap that are out of place like soybean oil and sugar?!?!

The extra cost it takes to avoid sugar and soy in everything is ridiculous, Doesn't growing it and processing it and adding it to natural ingredients cost money?

So why is the stuff with all the added poison always cheaper than products that were handled and processed less with less ingredients?

Someone REALLY REALLY REALLY wants you to have access to cheap and plentiful sugar and soy at their expense no less, but WHY?

All I see is a product meeting a demand of the market (i.e. People). If people want to buy it, then people will buy it. No if, but, what or complaining from the naysayers says otherwise.

I ordered a A&W beyond meat sausage and egger a while back and it was pretty bad.The overpowering flavor was salt along with being drier than a popcorn fart.
