Impossible Foods has secured Child Nutrition Labels for its Impossible Burger products, which means they can now be part of school nutrition programs in the US. To obtain the CN Labels, USDA's Food and Nutrition Services had to evaluate the plant-based meat's product formulation, as well as the company's quality control procedures and manufacturing processes.
Now that it has acquired CN Labels for its products, the company is launching K-12 pilot programs this month in partnership with several school districts. The Palo Alto Unified School District in California, the Aberdeen School District in Washington, the Deer Creek Public Schools in Edmond, Oklahoma and the Union City Public Schools in Union City, Oklahoma will be using Impossible's faux meat in a variety of dishes for their menu. Those dishes include tacos, frito pies and spaghetti with Impossible meat sauce. Other school districts can easily obtain Impossible products from suppliers to add them to their menus, as well.
Without plants there wouldn’t be any meat.
Ill be honest, the ones at Burger King arnt bad, but I hope the kids get a choice. I doubt it though.
They occasional one is pretty good; however I wonder about the long term effects of having so many phytoestrogens in mens diets that create manboobs. (not kidding)
Is it soy based?
They warn about eating processed foods and then push this highly processed garbage on them.
Their ad campaign got me to try one. I honestly didn’t like it. I never went back.
Not like you need any more reasons to get your kids out of public schools already....
But, if you still need one more,...
Giving a whole new meaning to the lunch-line phrase “mystery meat.”
Those are a bad side effect for boys who eat soy. The Japanese are appalled at how much soy we consume. It’s in everything!
and at twice the price
Any better than the impossible burgers served for the last 50 years?
Disgusting. Full of soy and estrogen. Might as well take some bolt cutters to young boys nuts.
This frankenfood is as big of a threat to America as anything else we face.
The Simpsons rule!
I happen to come across them at Wal-Mart today.
They’re priced for yuppies but not for me.
I don’t eat that many burgers, but when I do, I want real beef, and I make them at home. If I wanted to eat plants, I’d throw a bag of broccoli or asparagus in the microwave. These plant-based burgers are just another way they’re trying to get people accustomed to giving up beef to save the planet.
