I've seen a lot of startups trying to tackle lab-grown meat and fish protein. Finless Foods is the first fish-focused startup that I think stands a chance of success:

WaPo: Can we save the prized bluefin tuna, and its habitat, by growing it in a lab?

So many questions.

First one: Is this healthy?

just doesn't seem scalable the meat thing

and what are the inputs like? i get the ethical component and with fish the no mercury component. but, is it like growing hyrdoponic weed where it requires a f*ckload of lights and water and fertilizer and then your bills are insane?

i think a better solution is just that more humans die and then don't eat as much stuff

Is this the best thread to discuss moisture farming?

Two topics for discussing today:

1. This thread should maybe absorb this thread

2. "3D printed ribeye" has arrived: https://www.washingtonpost.com/business ... -usda-fda/

I mean, if true, this is a game changer

Quote:
The new meat-making process, developed with research partners at the Technion Israel Institute of Technology, prints living cells that are incubated on a plant-based matrix to grow, differentiate and interact to achieve the texture and qualities of a real steak. It has a system similar to an animal’s vascular system, which allows cells to mature and nutrients to move across thicker tissue, resulting in a steak with a similar shape and structure to traditional cow tissue before and during cooking.

“It’s not just proteins, it’s a complex, emotional product,” says Aleph chief executive Didier Toubia. He says the product mirrors the sensory quality, texture, flavor and fatty marbling of a traditionally produced rib-eye.

if i had to choose between destroying skynet or the factory that produces that product i would need time to think about it

By the way, vertical farming seems like a fantastic idea and there should be more of it.

There may have been more recent advances I’m not aware of, but when I was studying it about 5-8 years ago it generally wasn’t financially viable. The tech is there, but buildings are expensive and you’d have to sell a lot of lettuce to recoup.

By comparison, the 3D ribeye I posted earlier will supposedly hit cost parity in five years

Does this qualify as a viewtopic.php?f=8&t=16487 ?

Too soon to say, but no, I think it signifies a glacially-paced paradigm shift in the way we eat
