Even if this becomes marketable I'm sticking with good old-fashioned pig fat. Mark it among my other deathly hobbies. I'd list them all but you wouldn't believe me. How has this guy made it to his 40s? As I age I'm getting more into the idea of living until the age of 90 just to spite God.

But it is pig fat. Just not grown on a pig.

If you want the content that Futurism dumbed down and probably screwed up (I'm not gonna read their drivel any further than necessary to get the link), here's what they copied from:

https://techcrunch.com/2020/07/21/hig​h​er-steaks-brings-home-the-bacon-reveal​ing-lab-grown-pork-belly-and-bacon-str​ips/

Now you don't have to reward that garbage site with a click.

You can do that?

What I really wish for is a genetically modified tree that would grow bacon. Think about it, you could plant it right outside your kitchen window and just reach out and pick a slab of bacon in the morning for breakfast.

/I described this to a coworker once, and he commented that "Bacon Tree" would be a good name for a band.

I'm all for lab grown meat, but not so much for food ingredients described as "miscellaneous"

Thou shalt not bring false bacon before me.

Thanks for this. Every time I see the word futurism anymore I assume the tech is completely made up.

Pass - mostly because I'm imagining the level hell of flies and other nasty shiat that tree would become in about 15 seconds.  Now if they could sort that problem out...

As long as we're dreaming, it could be in a pod. Like peas on a larger scale. Then it would protect the tasty bacon inside and you could just peel, cook and enjoy.

Lab grown protein will eventually be the way most of us get out meat probably in the next 20 years when we find a way to scale production up to commercial levels. "Real" meat will most likely be a luxury produced by very few farms but lab grown meat will be our staple. Most of our agricultural methods will probably be getting upgraded for the 21st century within the next couple of decades.

Do people take the time to cook bacon?

None of that is going to happen

It's not just the commercial aspect that needs to be developed; engineered food is going to have to be developed if long-term space operations are to become practical. Meals on Wheels Rockets isn't going to cut it for extended missions beyond low Earth orbit.

Now, it's a matter of which drives the development; the need for greed or the need for feed. Both terrestrial and off-planet users will want a palatable product, and spacers might be willing to put up with something that the ground-bound would pass on, so that's where the initial thrust is likely to come from. On the other hand, if consumer-acceptable product can drastically influence the bottom line, it'll happen there.

If I can find a way I just might.
