Japanese Scientist Creates Meat Substitute From Sewage 417 417

An anonymous reader writes "Hold on to your hamburgers — Japanese scientist Mitsyuki Ikeda at the Environmental Assessment Center in Okayama has invented an artificial meat substitute made from human feces. The unseemly meal is made by extracting protein and lipids from 'sewage mud.' The lipids are then combined with a reaction enhancer and whipped into 'meat' in an exploder. Ikeda makes the 'meat' more palatable by adding things like soy protein."

    Doubleplusgood this. Did you know I don't think there's a single piece of meat in this stew? Looks like meat. Tastes like meat. Isn't meat at all. Doubleplusgood!

    They even suggested a pipe line between the US and developping countries, to convey the "food".
    They only thing they failed to predict was the state of the US economy, which may require to operate the pipeline in reverse.

    I stole this from Wikipedia shhh don't tell them.

    "Allura Red AC is one of many High Production Volume Chemicals.

    Red AC was originally manufactured from coal tar, but is now mostly made from petroleum. Despite the popular misconception, Allura Red AC is not derived from any insect, unlike the food colouring carmine, which is derived from the female cochineal insect."
