DailyDirt: Engineering Food For Every Occasion…
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
The preparation of food has changed a quite a bit over the last hundred years or so. Sure, some things will probably never go out of style, but a few dishes will never be the same once food engineers get their hands on them. Here are a few quick examples of foods that folks are working on.
- A nasty fungus is killing off the popular Cavendish banana. And if it’s not stopped, yes, we’ll have no bananas. [url]
- The veggie burger is evolving slowly to be more palatable for restaurant-goers and the general public. But stop comparing it to a burger — because it’ll never be the same. [url]
- An Australian brewery has created a “space beer” called Vostok — a beer that’s designed to be consumed in zero gravity environments. Regular beer induces a disgusting “wet burp” in zero-G, and this ain’t no Star Trek synthehol. [url]
