Our classic burgers and meatballs are made from soya beans/protein whilst our chick’n patties & mini rashers are made from protein derived from wheat grains. Our True Veg patties are made from a variety of vegetables, quinoa, and legumes.

When we say plant-based, it also means vegan

We’ve health hacked the standard burger patty so that you can relax and enjoy it. We use grains, beans, and veggies instead of unhealthy and fatty animal flesh. We’ve used only a dash of oil, and the oil we have used the king of kings: rapeseed. We found that coconut oil was crazy high in saturated fat so avoid using it in any of our products (except for a tiny dash in our Mac ‘N’ Cheeze’) whereas palm oil (& their plantations), whilst cheap, is not great on Rain forest sustainability.

Saturated (‘sat’) fats are the ‘bad fats’ found in a lot of processed and prepared foods. Eating a diet high in saturated fats is linked to raised levels of bad cholesterol and an increased risk of heart disease.

High levels of saturated fats are bad for you.  With 65% of the UK adult population overweight and 29% clinically obese we need to cut down of the levels of saturated fat in our diet. Everything we sell has three core principles: make it from plants not animals; keep saturated fat to a bare minimum, and have an amazing taste.

Calories and carbohydrates are what keep you fueled and full of energy. Don’t get us wrong, too many carbs (and the wrong carbs) and calories are bad but the sat fats and sugars are the real bad guys in our opinion.

We had the test kitchen in Reading Berkshire that we ran for 6 months to trial different foods and drink on the good British public. Having refined our ingredients, we closed both the test kitchen and delivery kitchen in London to sell our goods into other restaurants chains, pubs and supermarkets.

Coconut oil contains more than 80% saturated fat, which is more than twice the amount found in lard (c.39%), and significantly more than is found in beef dripping (c.50%). We don’t like saturated fat because it’s super hard to shift off the body, raises levels of bad cholesterol, and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.

We don’t have any fancy and expensive certificates to show off but we can promise you there are no animal products or derivatives in our food.

We think it’s insane to test anything on animals.

Miami Burger exists to make the plant-based revolution a healthy one. There are a number of studies indicating that Titanium Dioxide used to whiten food (like vegan chicken) is cancer promoting.  Likewise, studies into Heme Iron (found in cow’s flesh) suggest it promotes colon cancer. So, isolating that heme and engineering it into plant based patties doesn’t sound like a good idea to us.
