UGH!  Thanks for posting.  Just sent link to DD with a message to read the whole article!  She is currently experimenting with meat alternatives in her diet.

Thanks for sharing. I never eat veggie burgers as they often contain legumes. As peanuts are a legume so I avoid veggie burgers (my daughter has severe allergic reactions to lentils and split peas).

For those with milk allergy, please note Daiya dairy free cheese products contain pea protein as well, along with K-Toos gluten free cookies.

Earth a lance corporal twins pea protein as well. I have never had an issue with it, though I suspect the concentration in Beyond burgers is much higher.
