(Not sure if this was the appropriate group for this but I'm sure I'll hear about it if it isn't.)

Opinion piece of where the alt meat industry is at and where it's going:

1. Bovine should be pets and not food.

Adopt a cow today.

2. I'm ready

It seems like I can't get a decent burger anywhere these days, so my hamburger consumption has fallen off. I eat chicken to take up the slack. I also drink milk. From cows, not almonds.

I hope you'll be okay. Elsewhere.

5. Not really.

To start with, humans evolved as omnivores who ate cooked food. That's not going to go away.

And while I haven't yet tried the most recent meat substitutes, ones I have sampled leave a lot to be desired. Same with gluten free bread or pasta. I suspect cardboard would be tastier.

Now if you don't want to consume meat, that's fine. Just leave me to eat what I want.

6. Too soon to know.

I read or heard there are a lot of new organic chemicals that are in the vege meats that have not been tested for human health, they have just said, well it's sorta like this other molecule we know about so it must be ok.

I have the feeling this is another marketing push to get this product out, and actual testing on human health has taken a back seat.

And the claims about better for the environment may be sketchy too -- there is a lot of processing that must happen post harvest to make the vege-meat. It's not necessarily less CO2 intensive than traditional meat. It will take a real, thorough, independent analysis to determine that too.

Reminds me of Olestra...

I do hope it does work out to be safe for human health and the environment. We certainly need it. I don't see americans chowing down on grasshoppers and ants for protein any time soon.
