Fast food chain McDonald’s gives the meat alternative McPlant a permanent place on the menu. The burger made with imitation beef made with rice, pea protein, potatoes and beetroot was briefly available from the chain in the Netherlands as a trial last year. According to McDonald’s, the experience was a success which is why McPlant will definitely be on the list here.

McPlant is not vegan or vegetarian. Since there is cheddar cheese on the burger, a vegetarian character is not possible. The burgers themselves are entirely vegetarian, but during preparation, the McPlant may come into contact with the beef. This is why the vegan label is inappropriate, a McDonald’s spokeswoman explains.

McDonald’s is partnering with Beyond Meat to produce a vegan burger. McDonald’s isn’t the first fast food chain to focus on plants. For example, competitor Burger King has Veggie Whopper.

McDonald’s has also introduced McPlant in Austria, Denmark, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. Citizens are already on the map in the United States.
