The plant-based burgers by Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat have really been taking over the culinary world. From restaurants to fast-food chains and grocery stores, these plant-based burger brands have become household names. Lightlife Foods, which has been making vegan and vegetarian food for over 30 years, wants to join the fun with their new plant-based burger that will challenge the popular Impossible Burger and Beyond Burger.
The Lightlife Burger is “free of GMOs, gluten, soy and artificial flavors” and made with pea protein, coconut oil, and beet powder. These ingredients make for a juicy, beefy texture especially when grilled over an open flame. It also has “20 grams of pea protein with 0 grams of cholesterol and only 2.5 grams of saturated.”
Lighlife Foods didn’t stop there. They’re also introducing three more products: Lightlife Ground, Bratwurst Sausage, and Italian Sausage. The Lightlife Burger will start being delivered to food service this month and will be available in grocery stores in the US in late March with the other products following soon after.

Jean-Philippe Cyr‘s yummy Herby Chickpea Burgers are crispy like falafel, herby like falafel. Essentially, they’re everything you love about falafel sandwiched between two hamburger buns with all the dressings.
