    Oh, yes, there is! A perfectly cooked filet mignon!

    Nah. I'll take a decent kosher hamburger any day. In fact, I currently have that lined up for tomorrow night.

    I’ll take a Morning Star Farms spicy black bean burger any time over meat

    And I'll be happy to switch to synthetic meat just as soon as it tastes at LEAST as good as the real thing, and isn't ultra-expensive. Maybe in five or ten years.

    You're really missing out by skipping the cheese. Is it like a double negative if you put bacon on there too?

    agreed. and i would have no problem if all fast food joints would switch to that lab meat.. since what they currently have, is costing a lot of resources, while not resembling anything of the actual taste of meat anymore anyways ( one wonders if chicken mg nuggets have ever seen a chicken in their life anyways).

    Myself i do stay away from fats food 363 days / year anyways.. and the eat i buy, i want to be "actual" meat, best possible grass fed beef, for example, where the "flavor" of your steak is actually coming from how the animal was raised.

    Milk from cows grazing in the alps, eating fresh grass and a lot herbs, and the cheese made from it, tastes very different than farm raised, stall cows milked, who get generic food all their lives only.

    this nuance is what makes meat a worthwhile part of my diet.. and i would wonder if a lab made meat could resemble that taste of a wild farmed kettle.

    Assuming that synthetic meat that exactly mimics the flavor and texture of natural meat can one day be created, I have to wonder whether the process would actually be more efficient than is natural production of meat. If the process required extensive amounts of plant based fats and proteins, plus an energy input to drive the production process itself, then we might well be better off just sticking with raising farm animals.

    Was wondering that myself. Some recycling plants that utilize single stream are also saying its getting less efficient since so much has to be incinerated at high levels and chemicals added. Same could go for meat as you say. I imagine the energy alone to create this could be problematic. Also added nutrients and vitamins and acquiring them are going to add to that.

    This reminds me of a story my dad used to tell about Henry Ford. I have never tried to verify it.

    Apparently, he would go to the staff cafeteria for lunch and order a hamburger. He wanted to appear to be one of the guys to his workers.

    And he would often comment that these hamburgers were actually really good, he couldn't figure out what Joe Average was complaining about that they couldn't afford steak.

    But what he didn't know is that every day the chef in the executive cafeteria would freshly grind some top sirloin, spice it carefully and that was the "hamburger" that Henry Ford got.
    Thanks from BigLeRoy
