RE: Israel Opens Up First Lab-Grown Meat Restaurant

in LeoFinance3 months ago

I strongly believe this to be the future.
Let me be honest here, I know eating (excessive amounts of) meat is probably a bad thing. But my grandpa was a butcher and I just love meat, I rarely spend a day without eating at least some. Going vegetarian is not an option for me as thus far, everything mimicking meat on a plant base simply did not hit my taste. Having meat grown in a bioreactor, though? Sure, why not - if it hits my taste and it's not pumped to the brim with unhealthy stuff, this could totally be an alternative for me. Might take some more time to get it right, but I'm hopeful we'll get there within this decade.

I think the outlook you have is reflected by most. At the end of the day, few take the time to understand where their food comes from anyway. So having meat created in a bioreactor probably will not be known by most.

True, although I think that's changing over time as more and more people try to buy organic food or at least food grown close to where they live - at least that's a trend I see in Germany. Because of that, making the conscious decision to buy lab grown food could actually be a selling point as it's the ethical thing to do.

That is a bit of the case in the US but not really that much. We still have centralized processing and production plants. This is where the food source is.

With some newer technologies, including urban farming, we are seeing a bit of a shift.
