How Many Calories? Impossible Whopper from Burger King

 

The “Impossible Whopper” is 100% plant-based with 0% beef. It’s made up of mostly soy, protein, potato protein, coconut oil, sunflower oil, and heme.

Impossible Foods main purpose was to invent a meatless burger that still resembles real ground beef.

I had to check it out myself and they really did, in fact, create a “veggie” Burger that taste like the Whopper.

Perfect for vegetarians, vegans, and people trying to eat less meat. Although, Vegan’s, it is important to know that these veggie burgers are cooked on the same broiler as the other chicken and beef products.

On Burger Kings website, I found a section that mentions, upon request, these burgers can be prepared in a non-broiler method.

 

Available upon request

 

For those on special diets or trying to lose weight, don’t get too excited about the Impossible Whopper until you find out the details.

The Impossible burger only has 30 calories less from the Whopper, 6 grams less fat. It has 9 grams MORE carbs, and 100 mg MORE sodium!

Surprisingly enough, the Impossible Whopper isn’t necessarily healthier for you, but it certainly caters to vegetarians and vegans who like to eat fast food every so often like the rest of us.

 

Sorry to disappoint you!

Impossible Whopper

What’s in the Impossible Burger

 

As I mentioned above, the Impossible Burger consist of;

Potato protein, soy protein (soy leghemoglobin), coconut oil, yeast extract, cultured dextrose, methylcellulose, and food starch modified.

The soy protein is a highly processed, highly refined concentrated form of soy bean. Most highly processed foods contain a ton of sodium, and so does the Impossible Whopper.

Yes, I know it’s a plant-based food!

It’s still highly processed and contains 1080 milligrams of sodium!

Over processed foods have been criticized for promoting obesity and many other health conditions. They contain too much sugar & salt, and the nutrient value is completely lost.

 

The Breakdown of Highly Processed food…

 

  • Processing food involves preparing commercial foods into ready-to-eat or heat-and-serve foods such as TV dinners, frozen dinners, canned foods, and fast-food burgers and such.
    • Generally speaking, industries that benefit from food processing include; cannery, fish processing, food packaging plants, industrial rendering, meat packing plants, slaughterhouses, and sugar industries.
  • Processed foods benefit marketing and distribution, enabling consistency and easy transportation.
  • Highly processed foods contain harmful food additives which are substances added to food to preserve flavor, enhances taste, and make food more appealing.
  • Food additives can increase the risk of Diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and obesity.
  • Over-processed foods contain added sodium, sugars, and more trans fat.
  • The production of processed foods lose nutrient value, due from the high heat during processing causing the loss of vitamin C.
  • Refined grains have less fiber, vitamins and minerals than whole grains.
  • Refined grains may increase the risk of high cholesterol, diabetes and obesity. (source)
  • Food additives can cause health risk for some people who are sensitive to sulfites, artificial sweeteners, artificial colors and flavors, sodium nitrate, caffeine, and so on.

Healthier Alternative, although still “Highly Processed”

Morning Star’s Veggie Burger – Spicy Black Bean Burger

This frozen black bean veggie burger is very tasty. I like to eat it with a plate full of steamed vegetables!

How can it Help Fix a Muffin Top Belly?

How can it Help Fix a Muffin Top Belly?

 

I was recently asked a really good question.

I published a YouTube video, reviewing the Impossible Whopper, not long ago.

This question was asked on my Instagram;

 

Question:

Great! But would you eat it again?

How does it help your audience to fix their muffin top belly fix by eating this?

My Response:

Yes! I would eat it again, but without the Mayo! It kind of defeats the purpose!????

As far of your question, “how it can fix the muffin top belly”, since it’s plant-based, I found it easier to digest.

Not going into details. LOL ????

It only has fewer calories, less fat and less protein by a very minimum when compared to the Whopper, and a lot more sodium!!

But, it’s a great alternative for vegetarians and those trying to eat less meat.

 

So, yes I will probably eat it again for the simple fact that it is plant-based, but since it’s a “Fast Food” product, I would have to consider it a treat or celebration for something.

Considering it a treat because it is a highly processed food, therefore making it not so healthy and probably won’t help anyone lose weight.

The high calories, fat, and sodium content in the Impossible burger can’t help fix a Muffin Top Belly.

It’s okay to splurge every once in a while. After all, we are human and have tastes for this type of food at times.

However, we know it’s unhealthy and not a “Diet” or “Weight loss” food.

My suggestions;

I have written a lot of articles and recipes for healthier alternatives and suggestions to help individuals manage their weight and lead healthier lifestyles.

Please take a look at some of these and let me know if they help you in any way.

Hello, I'm Devara! Trying out the Impossible Whopper!

Impossible Whopper Review – My Thoughts

I’ll be honest with you here!

I enjoy eating out, just like anyone else does, but fast food is very unhealthy. I would’ve felt less guilty if I had gone to Subway, but I wanted to see what this Impossible Whopper was all about.

After all, it’s being talked about worldwide!

I decided to get mine to go.

Believe it or not, I couldn’t find it on the drive thru menu, so I just asked for the Impossible burger. They asked if I wanted the meal and without thinking, I said “sure”.

My bad!!

My total came to $8.34!

I was a little stunned, but then again, most fast food is over-priced.

The lady at the register said the Impossible Whopper by itself cost $5.98, but I never found it on the menu.

I took it home so I could eat it and do a video review at the same time.

At first glance, I was pretty impressed!

Burger King Impossible Whopper

It smelled like beef, looked like beef, had the texture of beef, and even tasted like beef!

Super Impressed!

The biggest complaint I had was the mayonnaise! It had way too much mayonnaise on it!

I really don’t think the nutrition fact accurately considered the amount of mayo they used. So, I would suggest asking for no mayo, or have it on the side.

Overall, it really wasn’t much different from the Whopper itself, just maybe not as juicy.
