Today's average American hamburger comes from a cow but it may not be long before it comes straight from a lab in Silicon Valley.
A growing number of companies are using high tech to create meat and animal product replacements that look like the real thing but are made with anything but.
And their target market isnt vegans -- its true blue carnivores.
The process itself is high tech. Were taking proteins and running them through a heating, cooling and pressure process that realigns them so that they substantially mimic the fiber structure that you find in animal flesh or meat, Brown says.
The outcome for the consumer is that it tears like meat, it has the same grams of force required to rupture and it has the overall mouthfeel of muscle, he said.

From the pictures I’ve seen, it looks nothing like meat.
Watch for, and stay away from, Malorginite...also known as soylent brown. (It is a fertilizer manufactured in Milwaukee, WI from sewage)
Ping for your interest.
If they didn’t want us to eat cows, why did they make them out of meat? /s
We’ve evolved from meat-eating cigarette smokers to manufactured protein derivative pot tokers. I guess if you are high enough, one will eat most anything to quell the munchies.
It's what's for dinner.
Looks like the Chinese have all bases covered on that one!
Chicken flavored ... vegetarian ham ...alrighty then....
I have no interest in fake meat at all, but I have tried and like some veggie burgers. Not as a substitute for a decent grilled hamburger, just as an alternative. "Expanding my horizons" and all that. And I think it's good for my kids to try new things often.
Pharmakea is what God’s word calls it.
It is one of the stated reasons why the time of tribulation has to be ‘shortened.’
That looks and sounds Nasty!
I already can’t keep big maks down.
You make a very good point! lol
Is that Kosher?
And the same people who whine about genetically modified vegetables will have something more to whine about!
Why yes, in fact the vegetables were blessed and bled by Rabbi Vasectomy Electively of the Temple Discordia in Skokie.
Oy Vey! That’s funny.
In a munchie attack, I and friends, once ate stale Oreos topped with peanut butter. We swore it was great, but never repeated the feast.
McDonald’s, the meat industry, and chickens (from Food, Inc) From Food, Inc. The history of McDonald’s, how the top meat companies control 80% of the market, and how the chicken has been changed to grow faster and larger.

There is a fascinating TED talk on a group planning to grow leather from animal tissue samples. We get a leather source that doesn’t require killing animals, and the animal tissue growth group gets a product that they can sell at a high price without having to go through the extra approvals edible products do.
Most working people can no longer afford beef. The standard supermarkets have lowered the quality and raised the prices as far as they can. Now the “beef section” is shrinking. If they removed beef from EBT card eligibility, beef sales would cease.
They have stolen our standard of living and redistributed it to the underclass. They have pitted the working classes against the non working classes in a war that will become bloody, and it won’t be beef blood.
Pizza flavored Combos
Was raised a carnivore.
Having said that, Morning star farms’ breakfast patties and their veggie bacon are DELICIOUS!
I still love real bacon too.
‘Member the furor over “pink slime?” I’m willing to bet that the uproar over “syntho-cow” will be even greater.
but will it have to be disclosed?
pizza places do not disclose the use of bread filler. (celulose added to four which is nothing but fine sawdust)
