Do you know what's in your hamburger?

It may soon be harder to tell whether the meat in your eating is real, as plant-based meat becomes more popular across the country. 

The meat-substitute "Beyond Meat" is made with plant-based ingredients instead of the real thing. The company says their "meat" gets its red color from beets and coconut oil and potato starch make it feel like the real thing. 

TGI Fridays will be the first major restaurant chain to serve "Beyond Meat Burgers" starting in 2018.
