What is the fossil fuel content of your veggie burger?

Mother Jones published an article that identifies the brands of veggie burgers that contain soy protein isolated with the chemical hexane. It cites a Cornucopia Institute study. Organic veggie burgers are not made with a process that uses hexane, which has been identified as a neurotoxin. Often times, the major brands of veggie burgers offer a non-organic veggie burger made with hexane as well as organic version that does not use hexane. It might be worth reading the links and checking your freezer.
