This Startup Wants to Make Cow's MilkóWithout Cows
Fortune ^ | August 31, 2016 | Beth Kowitt

For Perumal Gandhi and Ryan Pandya, the impetus to start their company in 2014 really came down to cheese.

Gandhi, now 25, was trying to cut back on meat and dairy for sustainability and animal welfare reasons, but he desperately missed pizza. Pandya, 24, was experimenting with veganism but one incident in particular gave him pause: He bought a bagel slathered with dairy-free cream cheese that was so sad and soppy that it dripped all over his leg.

“It’s asking a lot of someone to become vegan,” says Pandya. Cheese is only the beginning. As he puts it, “you have to shift your entire identity.”

Both were trained in biomedical engineering and concluded there had to be a better way. Pandya, for example, was working on making vaccines using proteins and small molecules and wondered if the same technology could be used to make milk proteins....

Becoming a vegan is hard. You get to feel sickly all the time, you can’t eat delicious meat, or dairy, and everyone hates you because you can’t shutup about how great it is to be a vegan.

Real vegans will NOT accept this.

They then obtained a cow’s DNA sequence, had it printed using a 3D-printer, and inserted it into a specific location of the yeast.

Did the cow give PERMISSION to use her DNA? Did she, huh?

Tofutti has already had a non-dairy cream cheese out for years. It’s not bad, if you want a bagel with a schmear but you’ve just eaten meat (Ashkenazi Jews must wait 6 hrs. to eat dairy after eating meat).

Don’t know how many of you remember, but there was an episode of Green Acres where they tried to get Oliver to invest in some eccentric old farmer’s so-called milk making machine which he made from an oil drum. To get it to produce milk you simply shoved some hay into a slot.

Can you do this with human DNA?

Just more proof of how unnatural the vegan lifestyle is.

We are meant to eat animal products. We are meant to eat meat as well but we can survive without it but not without animal products.

And there is no reason not to take and use animal products. Milking a cow does it no harm, eating the egg does not harm the chicken, eating honey does not harm the hive.

But by all means lets construct huge factories to come up with an expensive imitation of the same product you can make in your kitchen with simple real ingredients.

We could bring the cost of milk down in the West just by eliminating dairy subsidies. In some European nations, the cow subsidy is $1000 or more a year - more than what it takes to keep a poor third worlder alive.

What? How do they print anything on the molecular level of DNA?

Look up the keyword “3Dprinter” here for some interesting articles.

For chocolate milk, simply engage the metallic switch marked
"synthetic cocoa" on the side of the rubberized udder assembly.

________________________________

After sampling the milk and finding it perfectly fine, Oliver seriously considers investing in Loony Lou's milk making device. So he brings a sample of the milk to a chemist friend of his in New York to have it analyzed. Turns out it does indeed have all the main components of milk. However, it also contains one "magic", very expensive, ingredient which would shoot the cost per gallon to $40! He informs his business partners in Hooterville of the apparent deal-breaking results of the tests -- that it would cost them $40 to produce a single gallon of the artificial milk, and Mr Haney immediately responds, "That's no problem. We'll just charge $50... (a gallon)". County agent/fellow investor Hank Kimball follows, "Now that's good thinking Haney!", pauses a moment to reflect and adds, "Well, it's not 'GOOD' thinking"... Anyway, the episode was titled The Milk Maker.

Is there anything a “Freeper” can’t come up with on a moments notice? You should be given an award for this post...
