    The patty they use can be cooked rare, medium rare or well done though and is advertised to be done so.. Fish can be cooked rare as well not just meat .
    true - some of those fake meat patties bleed and everything, there probably isn't a better term to describe how cooked they are. it's not like they're grilling a carrot or something

    There is no blood, therefore they do not bleed.

    obviously the general public all know that it's not legal to serve medium rare mince meat in new zealand and quite clearly knew it was a vege pattie

    Its legal to be med rare if you have approval by MPI i think it is. quite a few places do it.

    He made a statement with intention to deceive. By both the dictionary, US law and Stanford's definition, that counts as a lie. If you're going to make a claim, back it up

    Predator said that if it bleeds, we can kill it. Thusly if a beetroot is dead, it can bleed.

    So I saw some Beyond Meat at countdown and decided to give it a try.

    Beyond meat burger patties do not taste or cook like meat. The texture when eating is more like one of those "fish" cakes which is 80% potato, and the patties are far too delicate in the initial stages of cooking.

    In fact the only time these overpriced vege rissoles resembled meat was when I opened the packaging, and was greeted by a smell which was quite similar to rancid meat.

    The taste was okay compared to beef burgers but at $14 for two patties (200g weight), suffice it to say I'm very disappointed.

    The packaging claims it is meat. Blended vegetables are not meat and "meat substitute" companies should stop trying to be something they're not.

    My only consolation is that I also paid $8 for some beef, which made 4 regular beef patties. These were tastier and far better to cook with than an overpriced vegetable smoothie reduction.

    I could have told you that. Get rid of the packaging to your outside bin or the freezer till bin day - it is the most rancid smelling shite!

    Don't bother trying the cheaper Canadian ones they sell either, they are far worse.

    I'm interested to see if Impossible Burger tastes any better. I can see how they can pawn this shite off on countries that don't have the quality of beef we have though. Also, if it was all you ate, you'd get used to its not right taste I guess - but not that fecking smell!

    Sunfed chicken and gardein phish is where it's at.

    Gardein is the horrible Canadian one I mentioned above:

    Both are horrid lab concoctions, but Beyond's recipe is at least the more palatable and more realistic copy of the two.

    Bostock's Organic Free Range Chicken is where its at.

    The only thing I can see being problematic is caramel colouring. There could be more, but nothing really stands out in my experience.

    These foods should be treated like vegan junk food moments, and shouldn't make up more than a couple of meals a week.

    But here is the ingredient list of the fishless fillet I specifically mentioned.

    gardein™: Water, Canola Oil, Textured Vegetable Protein Product (Soy Protein Concentrate, Color Added), Enriched Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Tapioca Starch, Potato Starch, Methylcellulose, Yeast Extract, Degerminated Yellow Corn Flour, Natural Flavors, Sea Salt, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Leavening (Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Monocalcium Phosphate), Paprika, Soy Flour, DHA Algal Oil, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Spice, Sugar, Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum, Spices, Turmeric. Turmeric Extractives. *Non genetically engineered soybeans, wheat and canola.
    And sunfed chicken, a little healthier and is my go to quick protein straight from the freezer.

    Water, Pea Protein, Rice Bran Oil, Pea Fibre, NZ Pumpkin, Natural Yeast Extract, NZ Maize Starch.

    Sunfed chicken's pretty damn good. My partner occasionally bursts in with a meat substitute and says IT'S JUST LIKE THE REAL THING; Sunfed's the closest any of those claims have ever been (by far).

    yeah sunfed chicken is the bomb.... Fry's family stuff is good too

    What? I'm a vegetarian and I eat these fake meats a lot. That is a nice low list of ingredients compared to some of the stuff I've eaten
