Jews, rejoice a kosher cheeseburger exists.
Jewish dietary law prohibits consuming both dairy and meat. But the Impossible Burger a meat substitute so convincing, White Castle now sells it has officially been certified kosher.
“And because our meat is purely plant-based, for the first time we can all enjoy a delicious and strictly kosher cheeseburger,” David Lipman, the company’s chief science officer, said Tuesday.
The burger is made with wheat protein, potato protein, coconut oil and its secret weapon: heme, or an iron-containing molecule that’s especially abundant in animal tissues that helps it taste like meat.
