FAQ

WHAT’S THE BEYOND BURGER®

The Beyond Burger® is the world’s first plant-based burger that looks, cooks, and tastes like a fresh beef burger. It has all the juicy, meat deliciousness of a traditional burger, but comes with the upsides of a plant-based meal. The Beyond Burger® packs 20g of plant-based protein and has no GMOs, soy or gluten.

I WANT A BEYOND BURGER®! WHERE CAN I GET ONE?

You can find the Beyond Burger® in over 15,000 retail meat cases, restaurants, hotels and more! Use our locator to find the closest spot to you!

WHY IS IT IN THE MEAT SECTION?

Great question. Part of our Future of Protein vision is to re-imagine the meat section as the Protein Section of the store. In this way, we can help people on their journey to eating more plant-based by allowing them to purchase plant-based foods in the section of the store where they are already purchasing other forms of protein. No pun intended, but we are meeting people where they are in their food journey and offering an easy switch!

WHY A BURGER FROM PLANTS THAT AIMS TO REPLICATE MEAT?

Our belief is that the best way to get people to eat less meat is by giving them what they love–in this case, a juicy delicious burger – without so many of the health, sustainability, and animal welfare downside of a traditional animal-based burger.

WHY DON’T YOU PUT THE BEYOND BURGER IN BOTH THE MEAT AND MEAT ALTERNATIVES SECTION OF THE STORE?

Dual-placement is a possibility but ultimately it’s up to the retailer. Our goal of placing The Beyond Burger® in, at a minimum, the meat section of the store is our attempt to help attract carnivores to the category and help change that meat case to the protein case.

WHAT KIND OF PROTEIN DO YOU USE?

The primary source of protein in The Beyond Burger® comes from peas. It’s soy, gluten and GMO free.

HANG ON…IF THIS ISN’T BEEF, WHY ARE THE BURGERS RED?

Well, we used beets to do that! Amazing, right! We wanted to keep the whole experience of cooking burger as similar as possible for our flexitarian fans, so we’ve worked very hard to create a burger that changes color as you cook it just like animal protein.

WHY DOES THE BEYOND BURGER® “BLEED”?

While we didn’t design The Beyond Burger® to “bleed” per se, the beets we use to give the patty a red-meat appearance have led some in the media to remark that the burger “bleeds” beet blood.

HOW DO YOU REBUILD MEAT WITHOUT GENETICALLY MODIFYING ANYTHING?

This question gets back to the company’s basic thesis that meat’s core parts – amino acids, lipids, trace elements, carbs and minerals – don’t have exclusive residence in the animal kingdom. Our task is to eliminate the need for meat from animals and find the same or analogous materials in the plant kingdom. We are not inventing new materials but matching the plant equivalent and assembling it in the architecture of meat. And the way we do that assembly is similar to the simple process used to make pasta – we mix our plant-based ingredients, compress the mixture, and then shape it into final product (in our case, using a patty former).

HOW LONG HAD THE BEYOND BURGER® BEEN IN DEVELOPMENT?

It’s really the culmination of 7+ years of work against our goal to understand meat, its composition, and associated sensory experience, better than anyone on the planet, and then rebuild that directly from plants.

DOES THE BEYOND BURGER® NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED?

Yes. Just like meat, you should keep The Beyond Burger® at refrigerated temperature until you throw it on the stovetop, griddle, or grill.

HOW LONG CAN I KEEP THE BEYOND BURGER®?

Be sure to check the “use-by date” marked on the front of your package. Once you’ve opened the package, however, they should be cooked and eaten within 2-3 days.

WHAT’S THE SHELF-LIFE?

Check the retailer-applied “use-by date” on the front of the package.

IS THE BEYOND BURGER® SAFE TO CONSUME IF I HAVE A NUT ALLERGY?

Peas are legumes. People with severe allergies to legumes like peanuts should be cautious when introducing pea protein into their diet because of the possibility of a pea allergy. Our products do not contain peanuts or tree nuts.
