            @Joey Jo Jo: I didn't know eating a plant based burger makes you a vegan. Also majority of people have no clue what a normal diet is, hence why most people are overweight and have high cholesterol, so perhaps focus your energy on them rather than worrying what health/environment conscious people are eating. How often do you hear people dying from heart attacks, high colesterol - compare that to how many people die from not eating meat.

                @Joey Jo Jo: ROFL, the patty is plant based, the burger isn't LOL. Also eating a single plant based patty doesn't make you vegan. Also mate please dont' be an ignorant old person, do research, talk to people who have a vegan diet and ask them questions, don't sit on your high horse thinking you know everything. Most people have no clue what a balanced diet is and require supplements but don't know this. Most people also take supplements when they don't even need them. Save your energy, educate yourself, and be more supportive of people making environmental/health choices. And go try the burger, I'm not a vegetarian/vegan, I'm just trying to eat healthy and look after the environment, and this burger is so great!

                    @Joey Jo Jo: Or they just eat other foods instead of supplements. Have 2 vegans in my family, and they have a much better diet than most people, probably better than yours, and guess what - they have no supplements. OMG.

                    "With good planning and an understanding of what makes up a healthy, balanced vegetarian and vegan diet, you can get all the nutrients your body needs to be healthy without the need for supplements.

                    However, if your diet isn't planned properly, you could miss out on essential nutrients. Vegetarians need to make sure they get enough iron and vitamin B12, and vegans enough calcium, iron and vitamin B12. Women are thought to be at particular risk of iron deficiency, including those on a vegetarian or vegan diet.

                    Some groups are advised to take vitamin supplements, regardless of whether they follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. For more information, see:"

                      @onlinepred: Making wild assumptions about my diet, nice one. Veganism comes with warnings from nutritionists while those who eat a healthy natural and normal diet that our bodies evolved with do not require such warnings ☺

                        @Joey Jo Jo: All diets come with warnings lol. Where have you been? Clearly you aren't evolving anymore…. so no need for meat haha. Luckily we have evolved, and we can make our own food and cultivate many plant based foods that offer the same nutrients while being healthier and mostly more sustainable. There will always be relics who think they need processed red meat, of which comes many more health warnings.

Or do you think Grill'd serves a grass fed steak on a burger? They don't fyi, it's either chicken or processed meats grilled. Just so you know, these patties are a substitute for RED PROCESSED MEAT.

                              @onlinepred: I can clearly read as I laughed so hard I fell off my chair when I read that you wrote relics believe we need PROCESSED red meat. Grill'd burgers taste good but are not healthy. A good non processed quality slice of steak once a week is very healthy. Eating fresh fish grilled or baked with a side of plants is exceptionally healthy. There are good fats and oils found in quality animal cuts that vegans would need to spend 5 times the hours sourcing or require supplements to find their required fix.

You don't know what the human body needs, you don't know about diets, you don't know why people need to take supplements, you don't know what a normal diet is or what it consists of. Red meat grilled is classed as a carcinogen, it has been directly linked over and over to increased risk of heart disease and cancer, we know this, this is fact. By red meat I don't mean fish or chicken as you assumed I did.

                                            Here is the patty that is apparently 100% beef:
                                            Beef mince, relish (diced tomato (50%), Sugar, Onions, Vinegar, Tomato Paste, Herbs and Spices, Salt, Thickener (1422), Food Acid (330), Firming agent (309), Salt, Parsley).

                                            Bacon
                                            Pork (94%), Salt, Water, Mineral salts (451, 450), Sugar, Dextrose, Antioxidant (316), Preservative (250), Natural wood smoke

                    @Joey Jo Jo: More false blanket statements about vegans and supplements? It's only RAW vegans that need to get vitamin B12 from a supplement. The average vegan that cooks and eats processed food gets their vitamin B12 as an additive that's in many breakfast cereals or plant based milk. So, to correct you, it's only ONE supplement that raw vegans need to take, not "supplements" as you say. You'll find most vegans actually have a much better diet than the average aussie. PS, I'm not a vegan, I just don't consume bullshit.

                      I doubt that anymore than 5% of the vegan patties sold would have customers choosing the low carb non-vegan bread and adding dairy cheese or sour cream and the likes to them.

      Only when peoples precious feelings get involved… so ironic because coconut "milk" and peanut "butter" have been fine for yonks. Now that farmers are scared about their marketshare it's all of a sudden a massive problem and they're just trying make sure things are labelled properly.

        Coconut milk is rarely confused with cow's milk. It would be a challenge to substitute peanut butter with butter in a recipe. These products are being intentionally manufactured and marketed to deceive consumers.

        I fall into that category of consumer that cares about grass versus grain fed beef. I'm specifically looking for the health benefits of meat consumption as advised by my doctor. The menu for lunch tomorrow is 300-400gm of rare-medium steak.

        • +18 votes

          Soy milk is never confused with cow's milk either. You point to one product that doesn't clearly state what it is on the front - what is the profit motive for a plant based meat company to trick meat eaters? Their market is people who don't want to eat meat, and will currently pay a premium for it as it's not cheaper to produce.

          I'd advise you to find a doctor that has up to date knowledge on dietary requirements as you can at worst get the same nutrition from plant diets and at best avoid the diseases that having large amounts of red meats brings about.

          That is hilarious. Their whole point is to establish that it is not meat. This is their selling point - that it is not meat.

          Specifically I thought they want to distinguish it from meat which, whether you agree or not, is building a reputation for a large ecological footprint/cost to the environment. And then there's the whole thing about killing animals for food which is a factor for some.

            If this was true, then they wouldn't be using the term Beyond like a brand. Can you see the similarity between "Steggle's Chicken" and "Beyond Meat"? Now compare that with "VitaSoy Soy Milk", "VitaSoy ALmond Milk" or "Peanut Butter".

            For your argument to hold weight the name would need to be 'Beyond Plant-Based Meat' or similar.

            whole thing about killing animals for food which is a factor for some

            This reinforces my point. Activists will attempt to deceive people by substituting real meat for plant-based products misleading labelled as meat.

            The scientific evidence for mental health being closely influenced by nutrition has only emerged in the past couple of decades.

            The doctor I consult is arguably one of the leading practitioners in nutritional medicine, is active in supporting non-meat eaters nutritionally and has significant clinical experience in successfully treating depression.

              @mathew42: None of this relates to meat at all. Red meat has more negative side affects than having slightly less protein in a day. Research is always finding new things and never is really set in stone. What we do know, is that most adults need around 50gms of protein in a day, if you have a basic healthy diet that doesn't include meat, you don't even need to to think about protein. This burger has nearly 30gms of protein fyi - and it's much healthier protein. Chuck in some pasta for dinner, some yoghurt or milk for breakfast and you are beyond the daily requirements for protein, and much healthier.

              It's why a balanced diet is far more important than focusing on a single thing like meat protein.

                Recent research is suggesting that the biggest concern in diets is sugar intake, not fat. Cholesterol may also not be the major concern it once was.

                You keep using the term protein as if all proteins are the same. As a vegetarian you should be aware that this is not the case. The amino-acids are completely different.

                  Just FYI, more people die from high cholesterol related health choices than they do a lack of protein. FYI.

                  The basics for you:

                  "Processed red meat was even more strongly linked to dying from cardiovascular disease—and in smaller amounts: every additional 1.5 ounce serving of processed red meat consumed each day (equivalent to one hot dog or two strips of bacon) was linked to a 20% increase in the risk of cardiovascular disease death.
                  Cutting back on red meat could save lives: the researchers estimated that if all the men and women in the study had reduced their total red and processed red meat intake to less than half a serving a day, one in ten cardiovascular disease deaths would have been prevented."

                    @onlinepred: Though I don't agree with mathew42's stance about this being deceiving product marketing or some kind of attempt to "trick" people into buying plant based substitutes (and frankly I think that's a pretty strange concern), the idea that red meat is something to avoid or that it has any sort of adverse effect on cardiovascular health is a pretty outdated idea that doesn't seem to actually be true.

                    Attitudes are coming around on what causes heart disease and raised lipid levels, and it seems it isn't from animal protein and fat after all. To be perfectly honest, I thought our understanding of nutritional science had moved past that as a society - I hadn't even heard it brought up in years until very recently - and it's usually by vegans with an agenda.

                    That being said… nutrition is hard, man. There's so much conflicting evidence out there, so many myths, so many people with an agenda, others with an emotional attachment to their diet of choice. You've got studies seemingly confirming one thing, and others de-confirming it or finding no link whatsoever. I've seen people play the study linking game with each other and it leads absolutely nowhere - all sides will instantly dismiss each other with "but look who it was funded by!" etc. We live in a time where it's possible to find a study supporting or denouncing practically anything. To be frank, it can be absolutely exhausting.

                      @flamey: My mother being a nutritionist, I know how hard it is. We are constantly finding out new things constantly. There are many things that have stayed the same though, red meat has a direct link to increase risk of cancers and heart disease. That is where we have been, and where we are currently at. I eat red meat, I limit it significantly though. The reason they brought this up, was because people were eating red meat for 2/3 meals a day with it being over 60% of the actual diet (being that they had a huge steak, and small amount of vegetables on a plate).

                      Anyway I agree completely with everything you said, except the whole vegans emotional rant - which stands nearly all sides as evidence by this thread where people are so emotionally weak they have to rant against vegans/vegetarians or whatever diet they don't like - these are generally older people or people with a lack of education.

                      I agree, lets move past this stupid labeling, lets make sure everyone knows what a basic healthy diet is, and let them choose what they eat from there.

                      The World Health Organization has classified processed meats including ham, bacon, salami and frankfurts as a Group 1 carcinogen (known to cause cancer)

                      Red meat, such as beef, lamb and pork, has been classified as a Group 2A carcinogen which means it probably causes cancer.

                      "Did you know that eating more than 700 grams (raw weight) of red meat a week increases your risk of bowel cancer? Or that the risk of developing bowel cancer goes up 1.18 times for every 50 grams of processed meat eaten per day?"

                        @SimBech: The issue is far more complex than that and attitudes about this sort of thing are slowly coming around. It takes time to undo ideas/beliefs that have been deeply rooted in society since the 80s - I mean, go to your local supermarket and have a look around. You'll still see sugary treats and gingerbread men advertised as "99% fat free", and people will actually buy them thinking they're doing good for themselves. This kind of thing goes all the way up to health guidelines and attitudes coming from authorities. These ideas can take a looong time to be updated, and if you have a look around you'll find that a lot of these websites don't even agree with each other.

                        Anyway, consider the description of a group 2A carcinogen on that website - it says it "probably" causes cancer. The evidence is insufficient enough that they're literally dealing with probabilities. I guess I would ask - if the science behind it was sound, if the evidence was conclusive enough to actually pin red meat consumption to cancer risk - would there be any need to use words like "probably"?

                        The truth is, it's extremely difficult (maybe even impossible) to conduct long-term nutritional studies and come out with a conclusive result for this kind of thing. It's really, really hard.

                        There's a lot of info out there to wade through and I don't have the time nor the energy to dive into it much more than this in an ozbargain comment section, but just for one example, have a look at this site here, from the World Health Organisation: https://www.who.int/features/qa/cancer-red-meat/en/

                        "Eating red meat has not yet been established as a cause of cancer. However, if the reported associations were proven to be causal, the Global Burden of Disease Project has estimated that diets high in red meat could be responsible for 50 000 cancer deaths per year worldwide."

                        "The cancer risk related to the consumption of red meat is more difficult to estimate because the evidence that red meat causes cancer is not as strong. However, if the association of red meat and colorectal cancer were proven to be causal, data from the same studies suggest that the risk of colorectal cancer could increase by 17% for every 100 gram portion of red meat eaten daily."

                        Again, dealing with probabilities. They can't outright say whether it is or isn't the case, because we don't actually know whether it is the case.

                        It's a complex issue. Doctors can't even agree on this stuff, dietitians don't agree with each other either. Then there's the issue of sugar and whether that's a carcinogen too. Is switching red meat for carbohydrates actually worse? Could be. There's also some evidence and ideas floating around that eating a diet high in meat but low in carbohydrates could even prevent or starve cancer cells, since (from memory) they feed on glucose - in which case, a diet high in red meat and low in carbs could actually be one of the best ways to prevent cancer. There are so many ideas out there and they all seem to have convincing supporting evidence. It's difficult to know who or what to believe.

                        I did a deep-dive into this stuff a couple years back and honestly I found the whole thing to be absolutely exhausting. There's so much conflicting evidence out there in the world of nutrition that it's one of the few fields I'd almost be willing to call a pseudoscience.

        so ironic because coconut "milk" and peanut "butter"

        Coconut milk is labelled "coconut milk", peanut butter is labelled "peanut butter". That's all people are asking for, not that they can't use the words "milk" or "butter" at all.

          It's actually not what people are asking for because no non-dairy milk is called just Milk currently, so there is nothing to ask about.

          People just want to piss and moan.

            @tablewhale: Then maybe read more on the subject, because a bit of googling gives this example:

            https://www.abc.net.au/news/rural/2018-06-16/meaning-of-minc...

            The product is just called "Minced" and sold in the red meat mince section of the supermarket. If nothing else, truth in advertising rules would require that it states that it's not meat based in as large lettering as "Minced", if it's not explicitly part of the name itself, like "Almond Milk", or "Coconut butter", etc.

              @HighAndDry: Since you started it with telling me what to do, I'll start my comment by telling you what to do in return: "Think about it a little harder"

              It is sold in the same section because it performs a similar function in terms of cooking.

              Minced is an adjective.

              It is clearly labeled "Plant Based" on the front of it.

              Boom, next, what else you got for me. PS Please provide a citation for your "rule" as I'm not sure what you're referring to.

                Chicken performs a similar function to beef. It's sold under chicken, not beef.

                  @HighAndDry: No it doesn't… what recipe can you substitute chicken for beef and not totally change the dish?

                  To be honest with you I'd rather it not be there as well I don't really want to look at dead shit, so let me tell you why it is their. I don't want it there, you don't want it there, so what's left is the fact that people who currently eat meat that are looking to cut down is a great market for the alternative meat providers. So I'd imagine that's why it's there. But the labeling is certainly not misleading.
