Burger King has a new vegetarian sandwich on the menu called the Impossible Whopper—630 calories. The Impossible Whopper comes with an Impossible Foods burger patty made from potato protein, soy protein, and coconut oil. In other words, it’s a meatless burger, entirely plant-based, ideal for vegans and vegetarians.
Even though it’s plant-based, it’s not exactly the healthiest choice on the menu. Actually, it has almost the same amount of calories as a regular Whopper. And, it also has 16 percent more carbs than Burger King’s flagship sandwich.
For comparison, the Impossible Whopper has 630 calories and 58 grams of carbs, while the original has 660 calories and 49 grams of carbs. That’s only thirty fewer calories. Probably not enough of a reason for most people to make the switch.
But if you’re just looking for a fast-food vegetarian option that tastes like real fast food, then this is where it’s at. While the Impossible patty is vegan, the entire Impossible Whopper is not vegan as it contains mayo, and it’s grilled in the same broiler used to cook beef and chicken.
However, it’s worth noting the Impossible Whopper is lower in cholesterol and does not contain trans fat.
