Impossible Burger Attacks Moms for Publishing Pesticide Results

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

impossible burger glyphosate residues

Story at-a-glance -

  • When tested by consumer advocacy group Moms Across America (MAA), concerning levels of the herbicide glyphosate were found in the Impossible Burger
  • The total result of glyphosate and AMPA, the main metabolite of glyphosate, in the Impossible Burger was 11.3 parts per billion (ppb)
  • The Impossible Burger is made mostly of genetically engineered (GE) soy protein, a highly-processed ingredient that’s not real food
  • Rather than acknowledging that glyphosate in their food could be a problem, Impossible Foods engaged in a veritable smear campaign against Moms Across America, calling it an “anti-science, fundamentalist group that cynically peddles a toxic brew of medical misinformation”
  • Alternative meat products are not natural, nor are they superior to real food grown in accordance with nature

Impossible Foods is billing its Impossible Burger as a healthier, more sustainable option than beef, but when tested by consumer advocacy group Moms Across America (MAA), concerning levels of the herbicide glyphosate were found in the food.

It's not at all surprising, considering the Impossible patty is made mostly of genetically engineered (GE) soy protein, and in the U.S. about 94 percent of soybean acres are planted with such GE seeds, which are designed to tolerate glyphosate, i.e., Roundup, herbicides.
