Bittman on “chicken”

Mark Bittman went to a research lab/factory prototype where they’re making “chicken” out of veggie protein.

Nope--it isn’t made out of human.

It shreds like the real thing, and it’s got much of the blandness and stringy texture of boneless, skinless breast. I mean, if we’re just going to put this nearly tasteless stuff in all of our salads, wraps, etc, why not make it out of vegetables? Best of all, unlike other meat substitutes (soy burgers, quorn), it’ll cost less than meat at retail. (And that’s before you figure in chicken’s externalized costs–environmental, human, etc.)
