From the Ted Talk by Isha Datar: How we could eat real meat without harming animals

Unscramble the Blue Letters

I'm personally most selfishly etixced for the food protudcs that I can't even fathom today, because this is really a new tool for culinary creativity as well. I mean, we haven't really seen this since our ancestors discovered fmrneoiaettn a while back. What I mean by that is, we could have never looked at a glass of milk before we fermented foods and wanted it to be hard and stinky and mlody. You know, we could have never envisioned cheese or the hundreds of varieties of cheese that we have today. Similarly, meat is still defined by the body of an anaiml. We still describe it as cuts of meat. But if we can grow meat from cells, selndudy the boundaries for what meat can be will totally change. Meat could be thin and translucent. It could be liquid. It could be crunchy, it could be bubbly. Burgers are the blsiaene and sausages are just a starting point, and nugtges are nowhere near what's possible with cellular airrutglcue.

Original Text

I'm personally most selfishly excited for the food products that I can't even fathom today, because this is really a new tool for culinary creativity as well. I mean, we haven't really seen this since our ancestors discovered fermentation a while back. What I mean by that is, we could have never looked at a glass of milk before we fermented foods and wanted it to be hard and stinky and moldy. You know, we could have never envisioned cheese or the hundreds of varieties of cheese that we have today. Similarly, meat is still defined by the body of an animal. We still describe it as cuts of meat. But if we can grow meat from cells, suddenly the boundaries for what meat can be will totally change. Meat could be thin and translucent. It could be liquid. It could be crunchy, it could be bubbly. Burgers are the baseline and sausages are just a starting point, and nuggets are nowhere near what's possible with cellular agriculture.
