The world’s most- consumed animal protein is pork—and its farming results in a slew of environmental issues, including pollution due to swine waste.

Previewed at CES 2020, Impossible Pork is made from soy and said to taste uncannily like the real deal. While the favorable environmental impacts of a pork alternative are clear, plans for a commercial rollout of Impossible Pork are still in the works. —Nadia Suleman
