Vegetarian meatballs has been around for quite some time now. But the alternatives have always been vegetable based and they never consisted of “meat” in a sense of using animal flesh. But for the first time, scientifically developed vegetarian meatballs have real animal in them, but they were made without killing an animal.
The company Memphis Meats uses science and technology to farm meat cells. They asked the question, why farm animals and then kill them for their meat, when we can just farm meat without harming any animals. They also aim to eliminate the side effects of traditional farming such as “environmental degradation, a slew of health risks, and food products that contain antibiotics, fecal matter, pathogens, and other contaminants”
The project of vegetarian meatballs by Memphis Meats is not only environmentally aware but is also a more ethical and peaceful solution to the eating habits of most people. People who would never consider going vegetarian or vegan because they could never “give up meat” can now continue their eating habits without the health risks, harm to the world and death to the animals.
The vegetarian meatballs are completely identical to meat of the animal. Their taste, smell, even the sound they make while cooking is the same as “real” meat. The world’s first lab-grown meatball is not exactly affordable at the moment, but like all technological and scientific developments, it is sure to be more widely available in time.
The cultured meat is used by their top chefs for creating timeless meat recipes to give the people eating them the complete experience of eating meat. They claim that “Our products are delicious, too: all are developed with recipes honed over a half century by award-winning chefs.” The company also aims big, saying that they hope to chance the dynamics of global food supply.
