I recently talked with Andras Forgacs, CEO of Modern Meadow about some stuff(boring to you) , but eventually got around to discussing both the science behind and the market goals for his idea. Abstracted, you use something similar to a 3D bio-printer to generate lamellar meat tissues, and then run it through a biocuring process to finish it. I brought up the prospect of synthetic Fugu, which he seemed pretty excited about. No blowfish venom risk, limited marbling requirements and it's a premium meat, (and would have fundamental features making it objectively better than caught meat), which softens the scaling required for economic viability, etc.
So, would you eat synthetic meats? And why?
