Plant-Based Fast Food May Taste Great, But It's Not Necessarily Good For You

Plant-based versions of classic menu items are taking over fast food.

Items range from Burger King's Impossible Whopper to Subway's Beyond Meatball Marinara sub.

But companies like Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods aren't trying to produce healthier foods.

According to Business Insider, the dishes are nutritionally similar to the classics they're named after.

The Classic Whopper has 660 calories, 11 grams of saturated fat, and 980 milligrams of sodium.

Beyond Meat Drops 10 Percent After Test With McDonald's Ends

CBC reported that McDonald’s ended its Canadian trial of Beyond Meat in April with no plans to continue. According to Business Insider, the plant-based burger dropped as much as 10% because of the news. While Beyond Meat said in an email they were “pleased with the test,” a JPMorgan analyst said usually if a test goes well, it doesn’t end. Beyond Meat CEO Ethan Brown said the plan with McDonald’s hasn’t changed. Despite the recent drop, Beyond Meat is up more than 90% year-to-date.
