  • Hi Stacy,

    Just looked on calorieking for a regular Morning Star veggie patty and it contains 10 grams of protein.  

    Hope that helps!

  • Hmmmm..... Yes, but not enough protein... Now I am wondering if this will be considered a protein or a carb..... I wonder if they will have turkey burgers?? Arg! I won't know how lean the real ones are. I bet they aren't lean at all.    :(

  • Thank you Neeserbeast!

  • Sure thing.  I also looked at the Garden Burger brand but it was less at 9 grams.  Any chance they'll have chicken burgers and you can modify?

  • veggie burgers can be protein but you have to read the label

    The vegan ones I have been using have 19 grams but I almost bought some that had less than 10. The amount of carbs varies widely also.

    Sorry no help when you needed it.

    What did you end up getting?

  • I lucked out!  The BFL Gods were smiling down! Just as I passed the burgers, a woman sat a plate full of turkey burgers down!!! I grabbed one and some lettuce.  :)

  • Veggie burgers have different amounts of protein and carbs, depending on what they are made of. Some are made of beans, some soy, some vegetables, tempeh, etc......

    I go for the Bocas, bc they have 13 g of protein.
