Re: Franken Food, Brilliant or a Little of Both?

I'll try it.  Taste and texture would be important to me, something not "mealy" or slimy.

I'll take a juicy marinated portabella with sauteed onions and peppers any day over this or a cowburger.

I like beef burgers and veggie. Not sure if I would want to try this one, though. What's the 'high-tech approach" ? That's what's concerning. I eat some processed foods, but this seems too much messing around with mother nature.

Yes. This is what I was trying to convey, but didn't say it as well as you did @PhilaLady1!

That is explained in layman's terms in the linked article.

I like veggie burgers, but I don't need them to taste like or be like meat burgers.

Re: Franken Food, Brilliant or a Little of Both?

I guess for me why I am so interested in these articles is that I have always felt like a total and complete hypocrite as I so love animals yet I am a meat eater and it really bothers me but I can't seem to break myself of the cycle.  I have cut down on the amount of meat that I do consume but if an alternative such as this became mainstream I would happily give it a try.

 

I don't trust Monsanto or ADM but these folks seem like their heart is in the right place about worrying about the planet and those of us that inhabit it so I would hope this research will be a very positive thing for all creatures going forward.

I enjoy most veggie burgers and will keep an eye out for this one.  It won't taste like meat, I am sure.  But the _texture_ of meat is elusive and the v. burgers can be pasty and swampy in texture even when they taste good.  I don't eat burgers too often but It would be nice if there were a more "umami" alternative.
