today in the WSJ there was an article in the business section on Clean Meat ;

 

Cargill takes a Stab on ' Clean Meat '

 

you can find it here :

 

clean meat

a pound of this " meat ' now costs $ 2,400 .

 

however , it used to cost  $ 18,000.

 

clearly a bargain these days !

 

this ' meat '     "   can be made into meatballs , Burger Patties , ands chicken strips "

no mention that I could see on taste

 

"" 1/3d of respondents in the US  [ 673 total asked ] would be willing to eat cell-cultured meat regularly "

 

""  nearly 1/2  said they would choose it over soy-based meat substitutes "

 

""  about 1/5th said they were unlikely to try the meat or would refuse it ""

 

Odd Note  :   no one has even tried it !

 

[ one more time ]

So Frankenmeat is OK but good old GMOs are still evil?  O.o

So there's bad pink slime and, now there's good pink slime.

Nice to see we've turned the ship around!

I couldn't read past the first couple of paragraphs of the cleanmeat home page. It made me feel nauseous just looking at the picture.

You will, I hope, forgive me if I stick to my grass-fed, locally raised beef.

Well, there are people who became vegetarians because they don't want animals killed.

 

This can be the answer.

These same people don't eat eggs or cheese or milk or butter or mayo(OMG), for which no animal died or even suffered. Logic is not in play here.

That's a pretty dramatic over-generalization -- I know many vegetarians who are opposed to either the actual killing, or the living conditions of your typical farm animal who have no problem eating eggs from their neighbors' backyard chickens.

What did you mean by it? I don't find there to be anything particularly illogical about wanting to eat meat, but wishing you could do it without causing undue suffering to living things.

It was lateish and I was cranky.

Apologies to whoever needs one.

I do find the logic of most vegans defective, but they should eat what makes them happy.

The only ones suffering may be those who eat it. :S

I wonder how many folks have actually tasted the stuff?

If the stuff is good tasting, inexpensive and healthy why should it be considered disgusting?

That is because they called it "Meat"?

 

They should call it "Neat" the other New protein. :P

I could never eat this stuff, partly because it reminds me of an excellent but harrowing book by Margaret Atwood -- Oryx and Crake (which has a sequel, After the Flood, and, I now see, a third book which I must read). In it, there's chicken grown just like that called ChickieNobs. Ewwwwww. There's an awful description of it.
