Here at Primo Pizza, we’re proud to be one of the best restaurants in Dracut when it comes to burgers. However, we’re not just killing the burger scene in the traditional way but in a healthy lifestyle way as well. Yes, you read that correctly; we put healthy and burger in the same sentence.
The Beyond Burger
Our Beyond Burger is a plant-based burger that looks and satisfies like beef. However, this one of a kind, mouth-watering burger contains no gluten, soy, or GMOs. Not quite sure what all of that means? Well, we got you! Read on!
Chances are, you’ve heard of gluten by now. While many people think of gluten-free products as yet another dieting phase, it’s not. There is proven research that many individuals have sensitivities or a complete intolerance to gluten.
Gluten is a group of complex proteins found in wheat, barley, and rye. While some signs are apparent almost immediately, often, signs of gluten intolerance can take years to show. The most severe type of intolerance is known as Celiac disease, affecting around 1% of the US population. Below are some of the most common signs and symptoms of gluten sensitivities:
- Abdominal pain
- Headaches or Migraines
- Constant feeling of being tired
- Skin rashes or other conditions
- Brain fog
As one of the most challenging products to avoid, soy sensitivity or allergies pose considerable risk to those affected by it. Soy is found in several unexpected places such as:
- Natural and artificial flavorings
- Vegetable broths
- Some cereal
- Some peanut butters
- Meat substitutes
- Processed meat (chicken nuggets)
Common signs of a soy allergy may include:
- Abdominal pain
- Nausea and vomiting
- Itchy mouth
- Hives, rashes
- Runny nose, wheezing, trouble breathing
GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. If you’ve heard of the GMO Project, or seen the little blue logo with the orange butterfly landing on a blade of grass, then you’re probably aware that the number of commercial products relying on GMO increases dramatically every year.
These products are those whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a lab through genetic engineering. Most GMOs are engineered to withstand direct applications of herbicides and pesticides. Concerning, right? For more detailed information, check out the NON-GMO Project by clicking here.
Now that we’ve filled you with all sorts of concerning information let us get back to The BEYOND Burger. At Primo Pizza, we’re committed to delivering the highest quality food with the freshest available ingredients. We understand and appreciate that not every customer has the same dietary requirements and needs, which is why we created this burger for you!!
Stop by today and see for yourself what everyone is talking about. Not up for a burger? No worries, as one of the best restaurants in Dracut, of course, we have a menu dedicated to healthy lifestyle choices!
