Well, it looks like the left’s never-ending quest to eliminate red meat is going south.
According to recent research, it turns out that the beef substitute, “Impossible Burger,” carries a potential health warning that can lead to possible anemia and even potential kidney disease.
That’s the recent findings from researchers who tested the meat substitute on lab rats.
Yeah, a burger that might kill you? Yum!
But it’s worth it just to help fight global warming, right libs?
Friends of the Earth (FoE) Australia and GeneEthics’ objection to the FSANZ approval, submitted in 2020, is available here.
The submission points out that SLH does not have a history of safe use in food. SLH in its natural state exists in the roots of soybeans and has thus far never been an integral part of the human diet.
In addition, Impossible Foods’ SLH is derived from a strain of GM Pichia pastoris yeast. Pichia pastoris does not have a history of safe use in food.
FSANZ has not assessed all the proteins potentially found in SLH for safety. FSANZ notes that not all batches of the soy leghemoglobin protein (LegH) expressed in Pichia pastoris “contained the same proteins, nor proteins at the same levels”. FSANZ states that “The most common Pichia proteins present in the LegH Prep have been identified and characterised”. Given that even trace amounts of protein have the potential to cause anaphylaxis, FoE/GeneEthics’ submission says, “We consider it important that all the proteins produced be identified, characterised and compared with known allergens.”
Furthermore, contrary to FSANZ’s assertion that none of the 17 proteins that it assessed are significantly similar to known toxins or allergens, Impossible Foods’ supporting documents (which for some reason have now been removed from FSANZ’s website) state that a number of the proteins produced show similarities to known toxins and allergens.
I don’t know about you, but I think I’ll stick to eating burgers that come from cows, not the stem of a soybean.
