GetGo unveils new plant-based burger at some Pittsburgh locations
A plant-based burger made to taste and smell like beef is now available at six Pittsburgh-area GetGo locations.
The Impossible Burger — made of plant proteins, sunflower oil, coconut oil, water, and heme — a protein molecule that makes the burger look and taste like meat — is available in Carnegie, Southside Works, Monroeville, McKnight Road, Robinson Crossroads and Bridgeville.
“We are excited to offer GetGo customers mouth-watering creations using the authentic Impossible Burger as the base, piled high with impossibly delicious flavor combinations that we customized in our GetGo test kitchen,” GetGo spokesperson Jannah Jablonowski said in a news release. “Our customers are looking for more plant-based and meatless meal solutions that don’t sacrifice quality or taste, and we’re confident that our newest menu addition delivers just that.”
Impossible Foods, based in Redwood City, Calif., produces the burger with a mission to produce plant-based foods to lower environmental impacts from raising animals for food. According to the news release, the Impossible Burger requires about a quarter of the water used to produce the same burger from a cow, a 20th of the land and uses an eighth of the greenhouse gas emissions.
