After the plant-based alternatives to steak, ground pork or meatballs, the American brand Impossible Foods unveils a brand new product: vegan sausages. This is the sixth product the company is launching in less than eight months.
The “Impossible Sausage Links” come in three flavors called “Bratwurst”, “Italian” and “Spicy”. They consist of a 100% vegetable filling, which should be similar in taste to pork sausage, encased in a “casing” that is also vegetable. These imitation meat products can be cooked in a pan or directly over an open fire, the brand says. In addition to their taste, Impossible Foods emphasizes their nutritional quality: They contain 11 to 12 grams of protein per serving, 0 milligrams of cholesterol and 30% less fat than conventional pork sausages. In addition, the product would also be more ecological than its animal cousins: it would require 79% less water and 41% less land for its production.
The Impossible Sausage Links will be available this month in select stores in the United States and will roll out to the rest of the United States this summer.
