Impossible Foods landed in Singapore in March and we’re already seeing it take over menus across the island. While it’s uncanny how much the plant-based product looks and tastes like beef, it’s in fact made of heme. “What the heck is heme?” You might ask. It’s a molecule found in all living things and is what gives meat its taste. Impossible Foods uses genetically modified yeast as part of a fermenting process to generate large quantities of heme, the key ingredient responsible for the meaty flavour in Impossible, in a sustainable and efficient way. Try it for yourself by checking out these restaurants serving the new ‘meat’ in town.
