DailyDirt: Test Tube Meat Fresh From The Lab

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Some folks just don’t like the idea of killing animals for food, but clearly there are plenty of people who don’t have a problem with eating meat. Technology might have an answer — if meat grown in a lab can be considered a humane way to treat living tissues. Here are just a few attempts at making fake meat.

Re: Re:

I went to a business lunch once with a group that included a lot of vegetarians (not vegans), and the restaurant that was chosen was a vegetarian hamburger restaurant. Understand, I’m not talking about veggie burgers — these are truly indistinguishable from real meat hamburgers. As a confirmed omnivore, I found them delicious.

The vegetarians found them repulsive: they not only don’t desire things that are meat-like, they are actively disgusted by them. It made me wonder about who the target market of the restaurant was and how viable the idea really is as a business.

Two of my children, through marriage, are vegetarian and they confirmed the problem: they actively dislike meat. They have no interest in vegetarian food that resembles meat. That’s gross to them.
