Artificial meat will soon displace the present

The first year, scientists around the world are developing in the field . The creation of such a product is extremely important for many reasons. And it's not in the pressure from the staunch vegetarians. However, to be imputed pounds artificial meat until recently was much more expensive than the present kilogram. But it seems that very soon, natural meat may disappear from the shelves, because technology does not stand still, and meat of plant origin will soon become cheaper than usual.

What's wrong with natural meat?

Even if you reject the ethical side of the issue, the production of meat is causing irreparable harm to the environment. For example, according to the editors ZME Science, for livestock consumes several times more water than growing the equivalent amount of edible plants, of which it would be possible to make artificial meat. Besides, waste from factories for the production of meat is far more than from similar agricultural industries.

But even with all the environmental and ethical benefits, natural artificial meat wins at the two most important factors: taste and price. But, apparently, not for long.

Why artificial meat is more expensive?

This is a very logical question, because plants do not need the same meticulous care as for the animals. In General, the cultivation of agricultural crops need less time and money, but the meat is plant-based components more expensive. Why?

"There are several factors why artificial meat is more natural" — said a senior researcher at Institute Liz Good Food shpekht. "But the most important one being that the volume is still very small. Therefore it is impossible to reduce the price to an acceptable level. The reason is that manufacturers of "vegetable meat" are not yet large enough to optimize the supply chain."

However, large manufacturers of artificial meat like Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat already greatly expand the state and lower the cost of production technology that by the first quarter of 2020 should lead to falling prices for their products.

This is interesting:

What is the taste of artificial meat

With regard to , here today, all very good. A few years ago, burgers burgers based on soy and chickpeas is not liked by consumers because of the "plant taste", today thanks to technology food industry artificial meat if not superior to the natural in its flavoring properties, it is certainly not inferior to him.

And these are not empty words. Just a couple of months ago the author of these lines, while in new York, in one of the local restaurants I tried . The menu stated that the Burger does not contain meat, but the taste of it will be the same as natural beef Patty. And you know what, the label was not lying. I am not a food critic or a foodie, but if I did not say that the meat in the Burger made of soy, I wouldn't have guessed that.

Therefore, if you are worried about the fact that "fake meat" is tasteless, you can forget about it. And since this market is growing rapidly, and the same Impossible Burger is already outside the US, personally, to enjoy a "Burger without meat" in the near future will be able to practically anyone.
