With so much focus on the benefits of creating ultra-realistic vegan meats, The Bearded Vegans thought they would take some time to talk about the potential downsides. Starting with an update on the recent glut of labeling laws that threaten to ban vegan products from being labeled as “meat”, “milk”, and “butter” and ending with the case of a Burger King selling cow’s flesh disguised as the Impossible Whopper. Paul and Andy dig into all the nitty gritty in part one of this discussion.
