Beyond Meat Company secures ‘Non-GMO’ status
"We feel a deep commitment to uphold our customer's trust and provide them with clean, plant-based proteins without the ingredients we know they are increasingly uncomfortable with, including GMOs," said Ethan Brown, CEO.
The company said they’ve dedicated themselves to recreating meat from plants with simple, non-GMO ingredients. Dariush Ajami, Beyond Meat's VP of R&D explains, "Though not easy, we believe it is entirely possible to replicate the exact taste, texture, and appearance of meat using simple, non-GMO ingredients. To deliver on the hallmark taste, texture and appearance of a beef burger, we employee simple plant-based ingredients in fresh ways beets provide the meaty red hue, peas provide the protein, and coconut oil and potato starch ensure mouthwatering juiciness and chew."
