The mystery businessman who bankrolled the creation of the world's first lab-grown burger has been revealed as Google co-founder Sergey Brin.

Mr Brin, an American computer scientist and Internet entrepreneur who co-founded Google and has an estimated wealth of $20 billion, said he backed the creation of the burger because the technology had "the capability to transform how we view the world."

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.

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.

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...
