Impossible Foods became famous in the culinary world for its faux meat burger patties that feel and taste like the real thing. Now the food company is focusing on replacing another popular animal-sourced product: cow milk.

Yes, alternatives to cow milk already exist in the form of soy milk or nut-based milk, but what Impossible Foods is aiming to do is produce plant-based milk that is designed to function, behave, and taste just like the animal-derived cow’s milk.

Recently, a researcher showed samples of Impossible Milk side by side with other plant-based milk like almond milk and soy milk, to show that the Impossible Milk looks much more like cow milk than the others. She showed that the Impossible Milk will not curdle in hot beverages like other plant-based milk does, and also demonstrated that Impossible milk can be frothed just like regular milk–a barista’s dream.

Moving forward, the company announced plans to double the size of its research and development team over the next 12 months to speed up the process of getting Impossible Milk onto the market. If you’re vegan but have never been satisfied with plant-based milk alternatives, the development of Impossible Milk must be exciting news.
