To everyone here who is Vegetarian, Vegan or is simply health conscious, this came from ABC news in one of the news feeds on Yahoo this afternoon.

Not satisfied with the little info ABC new provided I looked for the ingredients of this "miracle mystery meat'".
According to the Vegetarian Resource blog group the ingredients i'nclude "Made from soy, pea protein, amaranth, and carrot fiber with a few other vegan ingredients," and "the typically corn-derived sweetener, maltodextrin, is listed as an ingredient" (but no white sugar). As far as nutrition, "According to product literature, a three oz. serving of Beyond Meat™ Veggie Chicken Strips contains “18 g of complete protein, no saturated or trans fats, and is gluten-free.” It is rich in iron and low in sodium (”260 mg/3 oz. compared to similar products with up to 690 mg/3 oz. serving)" Find the whole Vegetarian Resource blog here ~ http://www.vrg.org/blog/2012/06/04/beyond-mea...
