First, it was beef, then chicken nuggets, and now pork. Impossible Foods is back with more non-meat meats and Singapore is on its list.
Impossible Foods today announced that Singapore can go whole hog on its Impossible Pork starting in November at restaurants such as Prive, PS.Cafe, Da Paolo and Moonbow Dempsey.
“With Impossible Pork, we’re beating the animal again while satisfying even more types of cuisine – another important step towards making the global food system much more sustainable,” president of the company Dennis Woodside said in an announcement.
The more sustainable pork uses up to 85% less water, 82% less land and generates 77% less greenhouse gas emissions. It’s also certified gluten-free, if you’re into that kind of thing.
They brag that their pork has a mild savory flavor with a balanced umami richness and can be used in dishes such as cheesy pork balls, spring rolls, dumplings, and tacos.
Impossible Foods said over half of 200 consumers it surveyed in Hong Kong preferred plant-based meat over real ground pork in a blind taste test. Impossible Pork will also launch at more than 100 Hong Kong restaurants next month.
