The public’s trust in Whole Foods took a serious dive after the chain was exposed for selling food with artificial ingredients and unlabeled GMOs, and it appears that the store’s new offerings are not going to be enough to win people back.

The Whole Foods in Boulder, Colorado, has launched an all-vegan burger bar that sells burgers it claims are 100% vegan and free of soy, GMOs, and gluten. Of course, with the controversy still fresh in people’s minds, a lot of shoppers will likely be wondering if these claims are actually trustworthy.

In the new Beyond Burger Bar, people can dress up patties made mostly of pea protein with toppings like vegan “cheese” slices and Sriracha. Meatless chicken tenders and a “fishless” filet sandwich are also on offer. Sweet potato hush puppies and millet “tater” tots are some of the side dishes available, and you can wash it all down with a coconut milk milkshake.

However, one part of the menu in particular stands out. A vaguely worded note at the bottom of the menu reads “Featuring local, non-GMO project verified ingredients whenever possible.” The menu fails to state what kind of food is served when this is not possible, however.
