BurgerFuel launches plant-based beef burger

BurgerFuel launches plant-based beef burger

BurgerFuel enters an exciting new frontier this week with the launch of their plant-based beef burger – the Beyond Beleaf.

Utilising the next generation of meat-free protein alternatives, this 100% vegan cheeseburger containing a meat-free beef patty, will roll-out this week across their 56 stores nationwide.

Crafted to provide the full experience of a classic gourmet cheeseburger, this latest addition to the vegan and vegetarian offerings at BurgerFuel contains the Beyond Patty, an alternative protein product that looks and tastes just like beef – except it’s made from plants.

The Beyond Patty is created by the leading innovator in the alternative protein sector Beyond Meat, and is the world's first plant-based burger that looks, cooks, and tastes like a fresh beef burger. Free from gluten, soy, dairy and GMOs, it is 100% vegan, high in iron and protein, and made from all-natural ingredients – the colouring comes from beetroot! The primary source of protein in the Beyond Burger patty comes from peas, and the protein content of the patty is a filling 20g per serving.

The Beyond Beleaf burger pairs the Beyond Patty with vegan provolone cheese, BurgerFuel vegan aioli, salad and tomato relish - all served on a mini artisan bun. Designed to be enjoyed by everyone, it is an opportunity for inquisitive eaters, vegans and those that enjoy the gourmet beef selection at BurgerFuel, to try something different. Launching in Meatless May, this special addition to the BurgerFuel menu is a chance to experience a meat-free protein alternative in an accessible and reliable environment.
