    Bring it on! Then modify it so its fat content is monounsaturated and chock full of Omega-3s. Then we would truly have One Magical Animal…!

    I’ve fantasized about artificial meat for a long time now. But the best meats are not just a product of tissue (as you mention) so I’m wondering if they solution will require making artificial bones… which leads eventually to an artificial animal. which would be a great achievement, but a lot more expensive than simple breeding.

    Artificial meat might spare the animals from suffering but it will also lead to the extinction of livestock as we know it. The evolutionary success of pigs, cows and chicken has been interrelated to the feeding of humans. Being nutriotional and tasty has been part of the evolutionary success of this animals. The reproduction of these species has been guaranteed by the fact of being useful to humans

    I see a major consumer acceptance issue….
    But I also see cost savings. I think we all know how such dilemas turn out.

    Why for has not this article Porky the Pig at the end of it?

    Honestly however, I think this is very interesting. It shows the continued revolutionizing of the means of production in some of the basic things – food.

    Meat has been in the past a demand raised by workers from time to time – as the early days of the industrial revolution often brought peasants/farmers etc into the factory system to swap their traditional diet for one of paste essentially.

    The vegetarian – paste diet, as I see it. The white bread, margarine etc diet is a very modified non-traditional industrial diet- many claim is perhaps one of the least healthy etc

    If humanity is able to get some level of rational control over the economy much of this food technology could really be put to use.
