I hope the produce is proven to be safe, because the ecological and economic savings seem to be massive. Wonder what the vegetarians will think of it. seoskunk msg:4599588 9:56 pm on Aug 5, 2013 (gmt 0)
Well the results weren't great, the meat (grown from stem cells) is white and tasteless. A bit like a chicken burger at McDonalds. The scientists had to mix in colouring and taste before consumption.

I don't add coloring but salt and pepper normally go on most meats I cook. This evening I grilled a pork tenderloin that my wife marinated in lord knows what topped by some kind of blackberry sauce. engine msg:4599658 8:55 am on Aug 6, 2013 (gmt 0)

Takes 8 weeks to "grow". I wonder what it is fed? Protein doesn't grow in a vacuum. I hope they feed it veggie burgers...
