Best Beyond Meat Patents

US20180310599A1 is the most popular patent in the Beyond Meat portfolio. It has received 27 citations so far from companies like Nowadays Inc, Nestle and Liao Kee Food.

Plant-based meat companies like Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods have spent a lot of money on research and development to make their goods as realistic as possible.

Beyond Meat employs a food extrusion machine invented at the University of Missouri to push plant proteins into a fibrous, meat-like texture that resembles muscle fibres in order to make its Beyond Burger product. Rather than using genetic engineering, the Beyond Meat burger employs beet juice to mimic the bleeding that occurs when a real burger is eaten. To better simulate the texture of actual meat, coconut oil and cocoa butter are utilised to give marbling.

Ingredient development has a lot of room for innovation, even without genetic engineering. The vast majority of plant-based meat products rely on a small number of plant proteins, with soy, pea, and wheat proteins accounting for the majority of them. Beyond these three crops, there is a vast array of accessible plant proteins that has yet to be investigated.

In the plant-based meat sector, technology is rapidly evolving, and the next few years could be critical in determining whether plant-based meat can challenge the global meat industry.
