The Patty of the Burgers that was developed by the consumer goods giant Unilever, beans consists of soy, wheat protein, sunflower oil, stabilizers and natural flavors, such as 20min.ch reported.

to the Mayo that is spread on the bun, not the Burger for Vegans, however, out of the question. And also, not all vegetarians are happy about the new Snack. Customers from countries where the Rebel Whopper is already no longer available, criticize that the vegan cookies are grilled on the same grate as the meat.

This is in Switzerland, not in a different way: "Although the Rebel Whopper has a vegetable Patty and no meat it is grilled on the same grill as the beef and chicken," said Burger King spokesman Lucas Mörgelin to 20 minutes. The reason for this is the delight: The Burger keep this "flame broiled taste".

battle fat in the vegetarian menu?

concerns for a vegetarian in Burger King, no: The preparation of the Rebel Whopper is bound to strict conditions. So the veg would be cooked-Patties around on the left side of the grill, while the meat hinbrutzele on the right side.

Swissveg-President Renato Pichler has his doubts: "It is still possible that the battle of the fat ends up on the Vegi-Burger." Contamination of meat-free Patties with animal substances could not be excluded. Even if the Grill is large enough, there is no guarantee that the employees would keep in the heat of battle this rule, he gives more to consider.

General Pichler is not fire and flame for the latest product from Burger King: "A Vegi-Burger is nowadays everything other than revolutionary. This Burger is already out of date now, at the time of its launch," says the Vegan.

Therefore, there is something wrong with the alternatives menus

Pichler regrets because even that Fast Food limp chains in Switzerland regarding vegan menu afterwards. "You have failed the majority so far, to bring these dishes to the market." The exact reason for this, he does not know: "The chains have to be afraid to invest money in the development of vegetarian and vegan dishes." So you would buy the meat – free cookies external "and the" meat-free "to sell a Burger is more expensive then".

Various fast food restaurant chains in the United States, the products of the meat substitute maker Beyond Meat and Impossible Meat now. Burger Kings big rival McDonald's currently in Germany on the vegan "Incredible Burger" of Nestlé. However, the Fast-Food chain announced in September, an Experiment with vegan burgers from Beyond Meat in Canada. However, it is only a test run in 28 branches.
