Over the next few weeks, places like New York, Hong Kong, and Singapore will start to serve Impossible pork. We don’t know when exactly it will be available to buy in stores, but you just might find it at your favorite restaurant.
Impossible Foods has said that their plant-based pork is not only healthier than real pork, but also more sustainable. It uses up to 85% less water and as much as 82% less land during product creation. They have also said that it creates up to 77% less greenhouse gas emissions than traditional pork.
Impossible Foods also said that their pork contains less fat, fewer calories, and more iron than the real thing, making their plant-based pork a healthier and more sustainable option all around.
Plant-based pork seems to be the newest meat alternative on the market! Other vegan meat distributors have also started to put out their own versions of pork, making it easier for people to choose a better and kinder option.
