This week at CES Impossible Foods unveiled their “burger 2.0” amid lots of fanfare and mini-sliders.
They’re actually the second plant-based company this week to debut a new and improved version of their product. On January 2nd, Beyond Meat announced the release of their own “Beyond Burger 2.0″ (albeit with much less pomp).

It’s apparently lower in saturated fat and has a better, more meat-like texture than the Burger 1.0.
As far as I can tell, this is the first big product revamp by Beyond since they launched their burger back in 2016. I haven’t tried it yet, but I have tried the Impossible burger 2.0 and have to say, it’s a high taste bar for Beyond to beat.
