Not any more.
My favorite faux "meats" Gardein brand (which is actually made out of food ingredients not made in a laboratory) has added a fish fillet. It's not particularly low in fat, but it's low in calories and sugar and has ingredients you can pronounce as they are made out of real food ingredients, not chemicals. But doing a "burger" is one thing, I was a bit aseptically that it would taste like fish.
Ingredients? - well my formerly favorite fast food fish sandwich has the following:
Pollack, wheat flour, water, modified food starch, yellow corn four, bleached wheat flour, salt, whey, dextrose, dried yeast, sugar, cellulose gum and spices prepared in oil with TBHQ and Citric Acid as well as Dimethylpolysiloxane (mmm, yummy)
Ingredients in the Gardein "fish" filet? All recognizable including sea salt, wheat gluten, organic cane sugar, carrot fiber and tumeric.
There are 3 servings per package and I found them on sale for $3.19 per package at my local grocers, so it's a pretty economical lunch. (next time, a different veggie than baby mutant ninja carrots, but it added some color to the photo).
