Nothing is more important to Impossible Foods than the health and safety of our consumers. Impossible Foods fully complies with all U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations and has gone well above and beyond strict compliance, providing extensive test data to the FDA and respected academic journals.
The heme in the Impossible Burger is identical to the heme humans have been consuming for hundreds of thousands of years in meat and other foods. We have a team of world-class researchers -- including VP of Nutrition and Health Sue Klapholz -- committed to making the Impossible Burger the most nutritious and safe burger on the planet. We’ve conducted rigorous testing, including a stringent rat feeding study that found no adverse effects even at consumption levels of leghemoglobin extraordinarily higher than a human would ever consume.
