Test Tube Burgers????
2013 will go down in history for many reasons but a test tube burger will be among the strangest, and yet potentially brilliant, discoveries of the year.
On August 6th in London in front of live television cameras scientists presented the first ever test tube burger. The burger which is made from 20,000 strands of laboratory-grown protein, combined with other ingredients such as egg & breadcrumbs was presented to two volunteers, US-based food author Josh Schonwald and Austrian food researcher Hanni Ruetzler.
The initial reaction to the burger was not either extreme as it was described as “Close to meat” but lacking in seasoning. The burger costing a whopping €250,000 to make, according to Dr Neil Stephens, has potential but is still in the early stage of technological development.
It is agreed my all involved that the test tube burger has the potential to replace conventional burgers in the future and could hit shop shelves within the next 20 years however an innovative way of reducing the costs is required.
It is believed that this discovery will spark many debates about the ethical, environmental and economic values of mixing natural foods and technology.
However for now it seems unless you have a €250,000 budget for dinner that the traditional way of making burgers will remain for the foreseeable future.
