Why should you eat less Beef?

Environmental Impact

  • The Blend - By replacing half of the beef with low impact ingredients (mushrooms & spices) we have reduced the environmental impact of a single burger by 45%.
  • Low Impact Ingredients(Reduce Water Usage) - Approximately 1800 gallons of water are used to produce 1lb. of beef (source). Mushrooms use just 1 gallon of water to produce 1lb.
  • Local - We use only high quality local ingredients. Unlike other beef companies that source beef from all across the world, our beef is sourced within 350 miles of our customers, keeping our transportation impact low. 
  • Reduce Your Carbon Footprint! - The meat industry generates nearly 1/5 of man-made green house gas emissions. Demand for beef continues to grow worldwide, swapping an all-beef burger for a Fusion Burger can help reduce our dependence on the beef industry (source). 

 

Health Benefits 

  • Reduce Fats Calories and Carbs - By using our Grateful blend we have reduced the fats, calories, and carbohydrates by nearly 50% when compared to an all beef burger! Replacing beef with mushrooms can also leave you feeling satisfied & full without eating excess calories. 
  • More Veggies! - Our blend not only tastes great, but it also adds an extra serving of vegetable to your diet, instead of extra red meat. Eating more vegetables means more valuable nutrients.  
  • Reduce Risk of Heart Disease- Eating foods high in saturated fats like red meat can increase your risk for heart disease. Replace that red meat with plant based proteins that will leave you feeling full and healthy. 

  • Big Flavor- By combining mushrooms with ground beef and our specialty spices our products are bursting with mouthwatering natural umami flavor.
