There is no doubt that the future’s food industry will open very different doors to us which through genetic engineering will allow us to create extremely tasty and nutritious food, and above all, truly organic.
This is the goal of two companies: Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat. Engineers have created almost perfect burger substitutes, but at the same time we will not find a single gram of meat in them. As a result, these products of the future can better change food production around the world, reduce hunger, unrestrained slaughter of animals, deforestation, and most importantly, climate change.
Livestock account for as much as 80 percent of greenhouse gas emissions from living organisms. Experts calculate that a 4-11 percent reduction in livestock will translate into 20-60 percent lower annual average greenhouse gas emissions from animal husbandry. Animal husbandry for slaughter also means enormous energy consumption, deforestation of unimaginable large areas of the Earth, and reduction of land adapted for agriculture.
Both companies have already received relevant certificates from the American Food Agency (FDA) that the ingredients used in the production of meat 2.0 are completely safe for humans and animals. Company representatives ensure that the eco-burger is an ideal replacement for traditional burgers. It not only looks, fried and tastes like a real burger, but also provides the body with the same or even better nutrients.
Impossible Food has recently established cooperation with one of the largest restaurant chains in the world, namely Burger King. Soon, vegetable-based burgers will be on offer, which will be available for purchase in major locations in the United States and Canada. A meatless veg burger boasts 12 grams of fat and 17 grams of protein.
An even more interesting offer is the company Beyond Meat, which has just established cooperation with the Subway restaurant chain. Soon there will be a sandwich containing fresh vegetables, and with them meat balls that do not contain a gram of meat, because they were created on the basis of plants, but at the same time look and taste like real meat balls.
Impossible Food is so delighted with its product that it presented in January this year at CES 2019 in Las Vegas its new, modified version of the eco-burger for mass sale. Fans of the latest technology who could try the veggie burger were delighted with it. Everyone believes that it will be an ideal replacement for real meat for all those who want to give up eating meat, but at the same time love meat burgers.
In the future, we will also have artificial test tube meat and insect meat, which has been consumed in southern Asia for centuries, and is little known in Europe and America until now. Regardless of whether we like it or not, the future will belong to such innovative inventions.
