Another startup looking at making faux meat. This one is using fungus to make something steak-like, which is an interesting untapped area https://www.meati.com/
But will it actually taste any good?
@cwebber There are parallels in history. For example, the first cars looks like horce buggies. Sometimes they even put a fake horse head in front of it.
The first plastics were make to look like wood. I think this is because people have a hard time thinking of completely new uses of a new invention and try to apply it on the familiar.
In the case of plant protein, the familiar products are meat, so obviously they will try to make it like meat to appeal to the customers.
@loke 100% agree
