The Moving Mountains® Burger
What’s the Moving Mountains® Burger?
The Moving Mountains® Burger is a plant-based meat alternative to the British beef burger. Made with a scientific blend of simple yet well thought out ingredients, consisting of; mushrooms, wheat and soy proteins. We decided on mushroom for the juiciness, and the mouth-watering fibrous texture and appearance, soy & wheat for binding of the ingredients (which by the way also gives a wonderful browning when the burger is cooked), beetroot juice for the right hint of sweetness and blood like appearance and coconut oil for that little bit of greasiness that burger lovers crave. We also decided on added Vitamin B12 to help with your daily uptake and for those that believe they are missing out on them if not eating animal meat.
What are the full ingredients of the Moving Mountains® Burger?
Water, Mushroom, Soya Protein, Pea Protein, Wheat Protein, Coconut Oil, Beetroot, Flavouring, Sugar, Colouring, Vitamin B12, Preservative, Herbs, Vegetable Oil, Spices.
What is B12 and how much B12 is actually in each Burger?
The source of B12 naturally occurs from bacteria that can be found in the soil.
Farm animals should get their B12 from grazing on these plants, roots and grasses. With the advent of modern farming methods of caged animals and the industrialisation of the meat industry, many animals no longer roam free and B12 is fed as a supplement to them rather than them consuming it naturally.
Why not bypass the cow and get your B12 direct? No meat, straight plant!
Our burgers contain 100% RDA (recommended daily allowance) of B12 in each burger. Which is more than a regular 1/4 pound beef burger.
Why is the fat content in the burger quite high?
The high fat content of our burger comes from natural coconut oil, which contains zero trans-fat, zero cholesterol and is rich in antioxidants (unlike the unhealthy saturated fat found in beef burgers).
Coconut oil contains 63% medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) which are unique in that they are easily absorbed and metabolised by the liver, and can be converted to ketones.
These MCFAs have been proven to provide an immediate source of energy rather than being stored as fat and a recent study with the University of Cambridge also found that coconut oil does not raise bad cholesterol and in fact boosted good cholesterol – not all saturated fat is created equally!

There are a lot of myths around soy protein. Can you shed some light on these?
Soy often gets a bad rep in the press, but these are just myths. In fact, soy has been shown to reduce the risk heart disease, osteoporosis and certain cancers.
For those with concerns about the environmental impact of soy, it may interest you to know that to create 1kg of beef you need up to 10kg of feed, which often comes in the form of soy. Our burger only requires a tiny fraction of the soy required to produce meat, and is therefore a much more efficient and sustainable alternative.
Why is this Moving Mountains® Burger important?
For three reasons;
- Plants are the future, animals are no longer a sustainable food source.
- With choosing plants there is no suffering and torture of animals through industrialized farming methods.
- There are proven health benefits of reducing your consumption of meat.
What effect does animal agriculture have on the planet?
Probably too many facts to squeeze in. However, here’s some food for thought;
- Cows produce 150 billion gallons of methane per day, 86 times that of CO2.
- Livestock covers 45% of the earth’s total land.
- 2,500 gallons of water is needed to produce 1 pound of beef.
- Animal agriculture is responsible for up to 91% of the Amazon destruction.
- Worldwide, at least 50% of grain is fed to livestock.
