Imitation crab has existed for many years now. Now they're working on imitation pork...

What I'm worried about are the chemicals used in the reaction. Every chemist knows that it is impossible to ensure that all reactants are used up. And what if they mess up the proportions? Could the higher than usual amount of unreacted chemicals be harmful?

Good point, NiHaoMike.

I'd be interested to see how they prepare/test the end product before releasing for sale, myself.

If the testing procedures are sound, I'd be confident in it's safety. Of course, FDA's testing procedures are thought sound as well, but eventually, inevitably, something always slips by. That's why we have the recall system in place. It usually mitigates most of the danger.

That would be counter to the interests of the company trying to market such a product. If you could see how they prepare hot dogs, you might spring for a steak instead.

It's probably safer to eat than conventional meat. No worries about fecal contamination during slaughter, and since you don't have to feed it as much, it doesn't have as much of a chance to pick up heavy metals and other toxins during its journey from being a single cell to being on your table.

Furthermore, if the vat can be made easy to run, you could have a meat culture at home. You can't beat the freshness of freshly harvested meat culture.

Another advantage: They could grow pure myocyte, no fat, no nerves, no connective tissue. Mmm... homogenous.

When the time comes people will accept it, when it causes health problems they will demand a cure for the system instead of giving up their cheap fake food, look at the bizzar foods that people not only eat, but seek out, Spam, velveta, cheetos, Miller lite, twinkies.
eat real food, not to much, food that spoils but before it does and never eat anything that is advertised on TV, but most of all, know where it came from, try to know who grew it if you can, but mostly know that it was grown.

You can see how hotdogs are made.... and I have. I still eat them.

Lips and assholes, by the way, is a wive's tale.

But test tube meat is grown...

It's also organic... purely.
