Dr. Praeger's Wades Into Meat-Alternative Burger Patties with New "Perfect Burger"

Dr. Praeger's Sensible Foods joins Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods in offering up their own meat-alternative burger patty--the "Perfect Burger."

The brand describes the new patty as a "a tasty, vegan burger that contains a short and simple ingredient list."

The Perfect Burger is meant to look, taste, and cook like meat but is made with plant-based ingredients, including sweet potato, butternut squash, beet, and carrot.

Each Perfect Burger patty is soy-free, gluten-free, and vegan, while containing 20g of non-GMO plant protein. Positioning the patty as a healthier option versus competitors, the brand claims their patty contains 15% less sodium and 22% less fat per serving than the leading meat-alternative veggie burger.

The ingredient list for the Perfect Burger is as follows: "Hydrated Pea Protein Blend (Water, Pea Protein), Sunflower Oil, Beet, Natural Flavors, Sweet Potato Puree, Butternut Squash Puree, Carrot Puree, Methyl Cellulose, Oat Fiber, Fruit & Vegetable Juice For Color, Sea Salt, Onion Powder."

D.r Praeger's Perfect Burger is not currently available in grocery stores but is instead available for restaurants and other foodservice operations.
