Whether you’re a vegetarian, vegan or good old meat eater, products such as Tofurky plant-based burgers are something that everybody should try at least once. They’re healthy, sustainable and (hopefully) tasty. What more could you want?
The reason why these patties bring hope to the food industry is because of their ingredients and the company’s active awareness in making them climate-friendly. In total buying these patties instead of animal ones can save up to 25 pounds of greenhouse gases. Their burgers use 87% less water, 94% less land and 89% fewer emissions. The reason why this is so important is because animal-protein based burgers can be extremely unsustainable. Not just because of their sourcing and production process, but also due to the emissions produced by the animals themselves. Plant-based burgers on the other hand offer a great solution to keeping both animals AND the environment safe from unnecessary cruelty or damage.
These patties are definitely something to keep in mind when you’re food shopping for a bbq!
What makes these patties really attractive though is the fact that the company chooses clean ingredients and safe methods to extract them. For example, instead of using solvent chemicals to extract oils Tofurky obtains them through their expeller pressing method. This process squeezes the oil out of the seeds and avoids the production of residue hexane and artificial trans fat.
Neither consumers nor the environment is put in harm's way!
Also Tofurky stands out by using only organic and domestically grown soybeans for all their products. This is great because the global trade of soy generates extremely large amounts of greenhouse gases, so sourcing it locally decreases this burden significantly! It’s companies like these who prove that there is hope for the food industry after all and they’re definitely worth checking out if you’re ever craving a burger!
