Solae touts tasty alternative for health-conscious burger lovers

ST. LOUIS - What's a health-conscious burger lover to do? The real thing tends to have too many calories and too much fat, but meatless burgers seem to lack the flavor and consistency of real beef.

St. Louis-based Solae LLC has come up with a solution, a patent-pending invention called SoleCina that involves both the process and the ingredients to produce either a "hybrid" meat ? part soy, part real meat ? or a completely meatless food that tastes like chicken, beef, pork or turkey.
