How would you like to have a poop steak one day? Of course you wouldn’t unless you knew where it came from. Considering the potential future problem of food shortages, Japanese scientists though have found a way to synthesize edible meat from human feces.
Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, was trying to find a way to deal with all the sewage mud containing proteins from bacteria.
The resulting meat created is 63% proteins, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. The researchers color the poop meat red with food coloring and enhance the flavor with soy protein. Initial tests have people saying it even tastes like beef.
Another side benefit from creating food from this is the huge amount of green house gas emissions and waste would be eliminated from the processes in the food industry.
Bon Appetit !!
