Out of this World…Meat?

Lately, meat choices have gone non-traditional. Here’s another one to add to the mix. Meat analogues made from carbon dioxide. Yes, meat made in a few days, not years on land.

Basically, the air-based meat is similar to making yogurt using a starter culture and combined with carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen, water and minerals. Using a proprietary process the protein product has all essential amino acids and has the texture and flavor of different meats. This process happens in a few days.

It really is out of this world!
