The so-called “test tube” burgers are set to be the biggest gourmet trend of 2018.
Beefy grease that gives burgers their sizzle comes from coconut oil.
Mashed mushrooms mimic a juicy ooze, while crushed beetroot gives the snack a bloody tang.
Simeon Van der Molen, the man behind the burgers created by UK firm Moving Mountains, said it will “convert even the most committed carnivores”
Simeon said: ”Our 100 per cent plant-based meat B12 Burger has taken scientists, chefs and farmers over two years to make and is the closest replication to animal meat in the UK but requires less land, less water and produces less greenhouse emissions.
“The environmental impact of the animal agriculture industry is becoming catastrophic and so it is essential that technological innovation keeps up to provide a real solution for food that is sustainable but doesn’t compromise on taste, therefore providing a viable alternative for vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.”
