Ron Bamboo, Carl, United States discussed on Todd Schnitt


You're listening to ground zero. I recall, and I don't have a years. It's been probably starting in two thousand fifteen two 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 of years. And you know, I think even touch base a little bit in two thousand eighteen by twenty nine thousand nine hundred be marketing this stuff. And now what I'm talking about is 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 if he's not a veggie burger. They don't say it's like, okay. You go to the website. And I was looking 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 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 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 right here. I mean, 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 you ever had one of those take a mushroom cap. What what what's it called, Ron? It's not it's not should Taki. Speaking of it's not us 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 portabella mushroom. They put it on the grill and barbecue sauce on everything else. Kind of kind of has you know, it's a mushroom. But dislike I'll pretend if it's the burger if pretended suburban. And it doesn't always work. But it's good. Don't don't follow me. You'll these little vegan get togethers or vegetarian get togethers and on respect you don't walk out your ribs, or you don't wipe out this huge honking 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 'cause I was really blown away here. It's made from a mixture of p protein isolates, yeast and other ingredients, and I was over. I was overhearing Ron tonight is he was producing the show. I also heard it has bamboo 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. In food entice soups. Okay. Yeah. Okay. So it's the same stuff. They have in the soup, and I like Thai food, so okay. So you got bamboo. That's other ingredients you got pea protein isolates meaning peas, not p protein isolates yeast. Bamboo canola oil coconut oil has coconut in it doesn't. It has coconut oil all the you're not supposed to eat fats and oils. Gordon, doc wallet? Okay. Oh 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. Sometimes we can 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 dia guilt for diabetics and pre diabetics. This is the burger for you. You can eat it not worry about getting too much fat. So got me thinking about how how is this supposed to be the year or how's it supposed to be a burger, and it tastes like a burger it just it's confusing. I guess the the red meat qualities from the beats they use. So their beats involved doesn't taste like beats though tastes like meat. So somehow 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 it 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 be at McDonald's. A Carl's junior, though, Carl's junior has it..
