Ron Bamboo, Burger Fuel, Carl discussed on Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis
You're listening to ground zero. Recall, and I don't have a years. It's been probably starting in two thousand fifteen thousand sixteen. I don't know. I was telling you about about lab meat. And I said, hey, it's coming, you know, they're going to have it ready to go in a couple years. And I think even touched base a little bit in two thousand eighteen by twenty one thousand nine hundred me marketing this stuff. And now what I'm talking about? This beyond me thing is not lab meat. But it is meat. But it isn't a veggie burger see that's the thing. That's the weird part about this. He's not a veggie burger. They don't say it's like, okay. You go to the website. And I was looking this up. I was telling you about how I ate a beyond burger Carl's junior over the weekend. And it just really kind of freaked me out because it tastes like real meat says here, this is going to be on meet it sold in the meat section of over ten thousand grocery stores. In the United States. And soon the world it's made without soy or gluten and it's GMO free by braiding together. Proteins fats and minerals. They have recreated the basic architecture and thus texture of meat. Unlike any other brand or product that beyond burger, according to the site is not a veggie burger, they call it. A delicious juicy media burger for true meat lovers. It just happens to be made from plants. So not a veggie burger. But I think it's because veggie burgers got such a stigma attached to it. I'm gonna eat a Boca burger veggie burger. I just say, where's the bathroom, you know, or please? If you're going to do anything give me one of those those huge mushrooms, sometimes they take mushroom caps had one of those take mushroom cap. What what what's it called, Ron? It's not it's not should Tocci. Speaking of it's not a should talk. You know, what would you say Portobello God, I'm getting a lot of help from my producers tonight Portobello mushroom. I've gone to barbecues before where they've taken the mushroom cap of Portobello mushroom. They put on the grill and barbecue sauce on everything else. It kind of has you know, it's a mushroom. But just like I'll pretend if it's the burger fuel pretended to burger. And it doesn't always work. But it's good. You don't don't follow me these little weekend get togethers or vegetarian get togethers on respect? You know, you don't walk out your ribs or you don't walk out this huge Hunkin burger and go down on it like a ravenous cannibal, but you're eating with everyone else the mushroom cap of a portabella mushroom. But it isn't the same. Right. So. I looked even further into this beyond burger because I was really blown away here. It's made from a mixture of p protein, isolates, yeast and other ingredients. And I was over was overhearing Ron tonight is he was producing the show. I also heard it has Bambu in it. Is that true? Ron bamboo. As Bambu in. It not not is it bamboo shoot stuff like in Chinese or is it like bamboo like what pandas eat bamboo or. Oh, entitled entice soups. Okay. Yeah. Okay. So it's the same stuff. They have in the Thai soup, I like Thai food, so okay. So you got bamboo. That's other ingredients you got pea protein isolates meaning peas, not pea protein, isolates yeast. Bamboo canola oil coconut oil has coconut Institude as coconut oil. You're not supposed to eat fats and oils, Gordon, doc wallet. Okay. Is he saying the new burgers are good for me? Is that we said. Okay. Well, I'll talk to Dr we'll get what let's get doc on sometime this week and talk to him about we'll say, what do you think of the damn beyond meat burger? Okay. Anyway. So. It says here it literally contains all the amino acids proteins necessary for a healthy vegan diet. It also is low in carbs. So it almost the perfect burger for people who want to eat a hamburger with all the diet guilt for diabetics and pre diabetics. This is the burger for you. You can eat it not worry about getting too much fat. So I got me thinking about how how is this supposed to be the year? Or how's this supposed to be a burger, and it tastes like a burger just is confusing. I guess the the red meat qualities from the beats. They use their beats involved doesn't taste like beats though tastes like meat. So somehow they've they've beaten the beat out of the out of the meat. So that's you know, they've never mind. So anyway, so this is what they've done. Now like you said two years we've been talking about this coming. We idea of lab meet coming or different type of grown meat coming. So it's popping up in stores. Is it Carl's junior? It's at in fact, some of the investors have been Leonardo Di Caprio Bill Gates and the CEO of McDonald's. Although I don't see one of these things at McDonalds yet, and they may be that be at McDonald's. A Carl's junior, though, Carl's junior has it. So. Coming up.
