Boca Burger is owned by Kraft, one of the largest food manufacturers in the world. Kraft in turn is owned by Philip Morris, the tobacco company.

Kraft would not share the sourcing of its organic soybeans for “made with organic soybeans” veggie burgers.

Boca Burgers that are not labeled “made with organic soybeans” are most likely made with hexane-extracted soybeans. Hexane is a neurotoxic chemical solvent that is listed as a hazardous air pollutant with the EPA, and food and feed processing is the major source of hexane pollution in this country.
