The last we heard, Impossible Foods is coming to Singapore, as soon as 2019.
For those unfamiliar, Impossible Foods makes really tasty meat, not from animals, but from plants.
Sounds impossible? Not really.
The company combines science with food, making their plant-based meats by combining ingredients including wheat and potato proteins, coconut oil, konjac and leghemoglobin – the oxygen carrier and hemoprotein found in plants that actually tastes like blood.
The result is a nutritious plant-based food that would put the tastiest patties in burgers to shame.
One of Impossible Foods recent investment comes from Temasek Holdings, likely why it has sped up its arrival to Singapore.
Even PM Lee has tried it.
Impossible Foods mission, as cliche as it sounds, is to save the earth.
We’ve been eating meat since we lived in caves. And today, some of our most magical moments together happen around meat: Weekend barbecues. Midnight fast-food runs. Taco Tuesdays. Hot dogs at the ballpark. Those moments are special, and we never want them to end. But using animals to make meat is a prehistoric and destructive technology. Animal agriculture occupies almost half the land on earth, consumes a quarter of our freshwater and destroys our ecosystems. So we’re doing something about it: We found a way to make meat using plants, so that we never have to use animals again. That way, we can eat all the meat we want, for as long as we want. And save the best planet in the known universe. – Impossible Foods
They even have a movie-like trailer for their mission.
Honestly, we can’t wait to try it.
