Default What did they do to my Boca Burger?

I got a new box (Vegan original) at the store last week and I thought they had just changed the packaging but NO

Old box - 1 burger 70 cals 5 calories from fat 280 mg sodium
New box - 1 burger 100 cals 20 calories from fat and 470 mg sodium

I can deal with the increase in calories and fat, although I dont understand the point and am dissapointed

But the sodium is awful. What I love about the bocas is to me they taste just as good as a burger and I can do them up with lowfat cheese and catsup and pickles and t&l and it is a nice filling burger especially on ezekiel buns.

Yesterday I had my first one out of the new box and it was so salty it was barely edible. YUCK. I want my salt in my pickles not my "meat"

OOOOHHHHH it was the ORGANIC version. Explain to me why organic soy requires more fat and salt than plain ordinary soy?

I was gonna say, I just went and looked at my box (I too have the original vegan) and it still said 70 cals.

I don't believe I've ever seen the organic version, but knowing me I wouldn't buy it anyway. And now I know I won't!

Don't know why the organic version would have more calories than the original.

You should write the company and ask what happened. Sometimes, the nutrition info changes because it was wrong in the first place but this sounds like a whole reformulation. That's disappointing.

Maybe, I should be glad I switched over to Morningstar Farms! I've just found recently that the Boca just hasn't been the same.

Hmmm. Could be that the organic needed all the same to mask the funkeh taste?

I switched from Boca to Morningstar because I love their "chicken" products. Their Parmesan "chicken" burgers are AMAZING.
