Test Tube Burger Tastes ‘Close To Meat’
It only costs $332,000. And it kind of tastes like meat. It's the world's first test tube burger.
This new burger was made by knitting together 20,000 strands of laboratory-grown protein with a mix of other traditional ingredients. It was grown in a Dutch lab.
It was made to look like a burger, taste somewhat like a burger, but tasters noted the lack of fat in this new lab burger. They say it was somewhat bland tasting, but the texture was right.
The goal of the lab work is to show the future of food production, especially meats and proteins, doesn't have to come from raising animals. There has been a concern that food production will not be able to meet future demand as the world's population grows.
