Hamburger Grown In Lab Cost $300,000, How Did It Taste?

A hamburger that was grown in a laboratory was cooked and tasted recently. The verdict?

Looks like it, feels like it, but isn’t it. They said the bite had the feel of meat, but due to the lack or real fat, didn’t have a similar enough flavor.

“The absence is the fat, it’s a leanness to it, but the bite feels like a conventional hamburger,” said U.S. journalist Josh Schonwald. He added that he had rarely tasted a hambuger, as he did on Monday, “without ketchup or onions or jalapenos or bacon.”

So it doesn’t quite have the taste. If you are like me, you may be asking, why are they doing this?

A co-founder of Google paid the 250,000 euros to fund the study out of his concern for animal welfare.

Mark Post, whose team at Maastricht University in the Netherlands are in charge of the profect thinks that the flavor of fat could be worked into the pre-fabbed patties in the future, and the fat may even be healthier than actual animal fat.
