If you’re into fast food, then I’m sure you’ve already heard about the new Beyond Meat plant-based burger McDonald’s is launching in Canada. It’s called the P.L.T. (Plant. Lettuce. Tomato) and it only has 460 calories. However, it’s worth noting that it’s not actually vegan. It contains processed cheddar cheese, and it’s cooked on the same grill where meat is cooked.
The P.L.T. features a plant-based patty made with Beyond Meat, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, mayo-style sauce, ketchup, mustard, and a slice of processed cheddar cheese on a sesame seed bun.
How does it stack up against the Quarter Pounder with Cheese?
The plant-based burger contains fewer calories and less sodium. But the Quarter Pounder with Cheese contains a lot more protein and less sugar. Both items contain 42g of carbs. And while the original Quarter Pounder with Cheese has more fiber, the Beyond Meat P.L.T. has significantly less trans fat.
