Beyond Meat – Silent Killer or Safe Alternative – Thomas DeLauer

Canola Oil

Canola oil is commonly used in Beyond meat, and are unstable, easily go rancid and undergo what’s called oxidation – they react with oxygen in the air to form aldehydes and lipid peroxides

Canola oil is derived from rapeseed, which is made by heating and then crushing the seed to extract the oil

It’s then washed in hexane to extract the last of the oil – hexane is a neurotoxin

It’s then cooled and bleached in order to remove the color

Omega 3’s vs Omega 6’s

One tablespoon of canola oil contains 2,610 mg of omega-6 fatty acids and 1,279 mg omega-3 fatty acids

Additionally, the omega 3’s in canola oil are from ALA

Soy Protein


Phytoestrogens, which are structurally similar to estrogen and can interact with its receptors in the body – they mimic real estrogen in your body

Soy products contain high amounts of phytoestrogens known as isoflavones

The different types of isoflavones include genistein, daidzein, and glycitein – these have been shown to activate estrogen receptors while simultaneously down regulate androgen receptor activity

Soy is also highly “goitrogenic,” meaning that is disrupts the production of thyroid hormones – suppressed thyroid activity is the leading cause of low testosterone in men today

Because they are structurally similar to estrogen they can interact with its receptors in the body – they mimic real estrogen in your body
Phytic Acid

Phytic acid, also known as inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) has six phosphate groups attached, which means that means that it is highly charged, which gives it its chelative (or binding) properties

In simple terms, phytic acid binds to minerals, metals and anything else it can get its hands on to and takes them out of the body with it

Yeast Extract (MSG)

Technically yeast extract isn’t considered MSG, but it does contain glutamates – contains naturally occurring glutamates, but not as much as MSG

Glutamate (in MSG) is one of the most commonly used neurotransmitters by the brain, but that doesn’t mean it’s safe to ingest – it’s not

That’s because the body produces glutamate only in tiny concentrations, whereas when you consume glutamate as an additive in your food, its concentration is significantly higher – too much excitement for your brain

Synthetic Vitamins (B12)

Some Beyond Meat products have vitamins added to them, like B12, but the form of B12 used is cyanocobalamin

Cyanocobalamin is a synthetic and artificially made chemical created in a lab.

Low-end manufacturers use cyanocobalamin, as it’s cheap, especially when bought in bulk

It’s been found to be extremely toxic and poisonous molecule (cyanide) that has to be removed from your body by the liver

The process of removing cyanocobalamin from the liver uses up “methyl groups” in your body that are needed to fight things like homocysteine (high levels cause heart disease)

The loss of methyl groups from your body uses up antioxidants, such as glutathione, which worsens your overall health rather than helping it

Methylcobalamin, unlike cyanocobalamin, exists naturally and contains no toxic molecules

It is pre-methylated, meaning it’s ready for your biochemistry to put to immediate use (doesn’t have to be converted, like cyanocobalamin)

Environmental Impact

An independently peer-reviewed Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), created by Center for Sustainable Systems at University of Michigan, compared the Beyond Burger to your average 1/4 pounder beef burger

Note on Soy & Canola Production

Soy proteins and canola oil do have an impact on greenhouse gas emissions, energy use and land use as well

Soy and canola are two of America’s largest scale monocrops (crops that don’t rotate) – grown on thousands and thousands of acres of land doused with pesticides

From the World Wildlife Foundation, this is the effect of farming soy:

“In South America, almost 4 million hectares of forests are destroyed every year, 2.6 million of them in Brazil alone. Although this is lower than in the 1990s, it is still far too high and can largely be blamed on heavily soy-dependent livestock farming.”

In the US, millions of acres of soy are doused with pesticides

Although soybean meal is the largest source of protein feed in the world, and is generally used in animal feed
