The Most Advanced Fake Meat in the World Is Still Gross
I've never understood the desire of some vegetarians to make their food resemble meat; it's creepy and seems to contradict their love of vegetables. Sadly, the practice shows now sign of stopping so, with some reluctance, I present to you the most advanced fake meat in the world.

What you're looking at here is the product of the LikeMeat research project—a collaboration designed to make the meatiest fake meats the world has ever seen. From a rather wonderful press release:

"It looks like a cutlet, it's juicy and fibrous like a cutlet, and it even chews with the consistency of a real cutlet — but the ingredients are 100 percent vegetable."

But enough talk. I know you're dying to know how they make it. Oh boy, it sounds tasty:

"The main ingredients — water and plant proteins — are brought to a boil and slowly cooled down... As the temperature sinks, the protein molecules start to form chains. This gives rise to a fibrous structure that is quite similar to that of meat."

Yum. Sadly, the researchers are only able to produce 60 to 70 kilos of the meat substitute per hour at the moment, but Florian Wild, one of the team, reassures us that its "consistency and texture are already superb."

While I can't deny that a modest reduction in meat consumption might be a good thing for the planet, the solution isn't to eat the products of LikeMeat; the solution is just to eat a few more vegetables. In the meantime, fake meat might be more advanced, but it's still gross.


Man all this genetically engineered food needs to stop.

No way in hell was man supposed to be engineering its own food. > The Most Advanced Fake Meat in the World - Photo posted in Wild videos, news, and other media | Sign in and leave a comment below!

The body will reject what it doesn't want, regardless of your opinion.

I'm vegetarian. I've tried those vegetarian "chicken" strips and they weren't bad. Same texture and all that. I've also made curry chicken with the fake chicken [..]s too. That wasn't bad either. Next I'm gonna try and make some beef patties with the fake ground beef. I don't really see what the big deal is if under everything it's just vegetables.

is the person who wrote the article under some sort of illusion whereby vegetarians don't like the taste of meat?
