I’m a meat eater. I’m also a fan of the environment, and I understand that the current methods for meat production are not sustainable (support small local farms!). This video fascinated me. A meat substitute that actually resembles meat? This is big news.
The company is called Beyond Meat. Apparently this substitute not only looks like meat, it feels like it, reporting that texture is more important than flavor. I’m not so sure about that, but I’d like to try it and see for myself.
Science says human health is often directly tied with what we put into our bodies. This formula might be a key to fighting a variety of health issues plaguing us today.
The fake meat is constructed from the molecular level, and as such can be manipulated to add more nutrients than natural meat contains. This “super meat” is the stuff of science fiction, but it may soon be a common feature in restaurants and grocery stores everywhere.
With this product taking to market, maybe we can finally all agree tofu was a terrible idea.
