Good Eats | All About the $332,000 Burger


goodeats_logo

Let’s face it; meat lovers are not impressed with garden burgers and tofurkey. No one knows this better than Mark Post, a vascular biologist from the Netherlands who decided to come up with a meatier alternative. The World Health Organization (WHO) projects that by the year 2030, the meat industry will produce 376 million tons of meat annually just to keep up with growing demand. Post’s idea, to grow meat in a lab, could drastically reduce the number of poor animals the will need to be slaughtered in order to realize the staggering 2030 projection.

Post is responsible for the world’s first petri dish burger grown from cattle stem cells. The test tube burger is the result of a five-year, $332,000 science experiment. The yummy recipe you ask? Oh just 20,000 strands of lab grown protein delicately knitted together, tossed with some red beet juice, saffron, egg powder, breadcrumbs, and of course a dash of salt to boost the flavor.

At a televised press conference held on Monday in London, two lab burgers were cooked and served to volunteer taste testers. Though the “burgers” looked like regular burgers, praise about the taste was not forthcoming, not even from the creator. Post only offered that “it’s a very good start”. Others gave the burger credit for its potential and predicted that it could hit supermarket shelves in 20 years or so.
