Tyson Foods Invests in Mock Meat

The top U.S. producer of chicken, beef and pork has made a significant investment in a California meat analog producer, Beyond Meat. They create chicken- and beef-like products using soy, peas, and amaranth. Beyond Burger is sold in retailers along side their real counterparts (not frozen). Beyond Burger oozes "blood" like the real thing, but it is beet juice! The company says this mock patty matches the real patty nutritionally.
