Bad News For Us Fast Food Vegetarians

Veggie Burgers

Nutrition Bars

I just learned that my favorite fast food: The Boca Burger is not healthy! How could that be? Because Boca Burgers are made from soybeans bathed in a product called hexane. Hexane extracts the oil from soybeans, a necessary step to making most conventional soy ingredients. Unfortunately, hexane, a byproduct of gasoline refining, is also a neurotoxin and an air pollutant.

The Cornucopia Institute has developed a Guide to Choosing Non-Hexane Meat Alternatives and the Guide to Choosing Non-Hexane Nutrition Bars to help us support the companies that have committed to hexane-free soy ingredients.

Like any food, there are good and bad choices. It’s time to start making my own!
