Success!(?) The first synthetic hamburger shall be taste-tested today.

I think it will be full of flavors, as they're easily added. I think the texture, the juiciness and the aroma will fall far short of a grilled burger.

Will lab-grown meat/food be the answer to third world malnutrition. Could this technology (finally!) be the proto-seed of the Jetson's food synthesizer?

I'm ok with cloned meat, but synthetic meat is just blasphemy. Smiley: disappointed

Same thing really. Instead of growing the whole cloned cow you just grow some meat cells.

No, no one is starving from a lack of meat. They're starving from a lack of staple grains/beans which is primarily a political issue as opposed to an agricultural one.

I like my cows to be conveyor belted passed ovens prior to being hammered across the forehead to lock in that fear flavoring.

If you are using gas ovens you can flash sear some terror inside the crispy crust before continuing with the slow roasted panic.

Kind of pointless to do this with cowmeat, you're going to want cows for the milk anyway and bulls don't produce milk so you already get the meat anyway until they make milk in a lab too.

Milk in a bag takes on a whole new meaning.

That was my thought. Problem isn't lack of available Big Macs; problem is warlords seizing grain shipments and leaving them to rot.

But this stuff; I bet it tastes like slig.

It tasted pretty bad since it had no fat whatsoever, it was purely muscle tissue.

I did that, and it didn't work for some reason. I must have messed it up.

ETA: Ah, I see what I did wrong. Need to lost part of the link that it gives you

You used the shortened Youtube link instead of the normal one, that's why it didn't work.

Ever wonder where banned posters go?

The official word on the first synthetic burger is........
Salon wrote:
“There is quite some flavor … quite some intense taste,” said food scientist Hanni Rützler, looking perhaps a tiny bit queasy as she tasted the lab grown meat that premiered publicly for the first time this morning in London. “It is close to meat.”

Added Josh Schonwald, author of “The Taste of Tomorrow: Dispatches from the Future of Food” and the meat’s second official taster, “the texture has a feel like meat.” He ranked it as existing somewhere between a meat-imitating Boca Burger and a McDonald’s burger.

In this picture of the burger it looks like they had to put butter down in the fry pan.

That's not much of an endorsement.
