Aldi's Flexitarian Burger was recently launched as part of the grocery chain's dedication to healthier meat options, geared toward encouraging more mindful consumption patterns. Sparking debate both online and in-store recently, the burger is made partially from meat and partially from beans, ultimately leaving a lower carbon footprint on the planet.
Though a controversial name, the Aldi Flexitarian Burger is inspired by a recent diet fad that doesn't eliminate meat but instead focuses on more conscious consumption and preparation methods. This popular diet plan still incorporates meat into one's diet but ensures the meat is ethically grown and organically sourced -- meaning no antibiotics or hormones should be added.
This niche burger offering by Aldi illustrates the grocer's dedication to satisfying the growing demand for diet-friendly foods that fall outside of traditional labels like carnivore, vegetarian and vegan. This decision allows for conscious eating that is more flexible and less regimented.
