Plant Meat - Awesome Vegan Meats

These delicious plant-based meats make it easy to move towards a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle.

Plant meats are a great tool. We have been so heavily normalised to the taste of meat that it can be really hard to let go of it completely. As I say in the video, most vegans and vegetarians didn't stop eating meat because they didnt like the taste, they (generally) did it because;
- Ethics - Meat means killing animals unnecessarily
- Environment - meat is unsustainable to produce
- Health - meat is linked to a number of serious health conditions

There is no doubt that eating meat is almost always unethical - possibly not by the standards of our prehistoric ancestors, but definitely within the context of modern society - we now have the scientific insight to know we don’t need meat, we have the technological advancement to make awesome alternatives and we have the global awareness to understand the negative consequences of eating meat… and within those parameters to choose to eat meat is sort of like choosing to buy the lave labor option next to perfectly good alternatives .. there is no away out of the ethics of that decision.

Plant options for 'meatiness';
- Tofu, Tempeh
- Mushrooms
- Eggplant
- Jackfruit
- Beans, lentils, chickpeass
- Nuts
Any of these things can make a meal meaty and are much healthier alternatives. It really just comes down to what you marinade your veggies in; liquid smoke, balsamic vinegar, BBQ sauce, soy sauce, chili, thyme/rosemary/oregano, smoked paprika

Google's Eric Schmidt Named This the No. 1 Tech Trend, and Bill Gates Supports It

Google's Eric Schmidt Named This the No. 1 Tech Trend, and Bill Gates Supports It | i Cook | Scoop.it

In a recent speech on 'moonshot' technologies, Schmidt cited cultured meat before 3-D printing and self-driving cars. Plus, its wide support could help lower global warming and feed the hungry.

 

You'd be forgiven if you missed this year's Milken Institute Global Conference. The think tank drew speakers from Kobe Bryant and Tom Hanks to Al Gore.

Though many events were invitation-only, the lunch talk in the video below, by Eric Schmidt of Google and its parent, Alphabet, highlighted his view of the top technology trends from one of the most rarified perspectives in the tech world.

 

He describes several "moonshots"--technologies that would improve the state of the art by 10 times, and that have the technology and investment to make them plausible now. Many moonshots fail, but some succeed.

 

The first he mentions is what he calls "Nerds Over Cattle"--also known as cultured meat or meatless meat. He's talking about "assembling" meat from amino acids and other building blocks of life.

Pointing out that cows produce "up to 15 percent of global warming," Schmidt says using plants exclusively, instead of animals, would help global warming and lower costs of food throughout the world.

 

Note that he mentions cultured meat before other moonshots you're probably more familiar with, like 3-D printing, virtual reality, self-driving cars, and improving education through technology. Bill Gates has already stated that "Remaking meat is one sector of the food industry that is ripe for innovation and growth."

Today's State of the Art

The industry has moved far beyond veggie burgers. In London in 2013, a team from Maastricht University demonstrated a burger they made from cow stem cells, which chef Richard McGeown then cooked. Food critic Hanni Ruetzler described it:

There is really a bite to it, there is quite some flavor with the browning. I know there is no fat in it so I didn't really know how juicy it would be, but there is quite some intense taste; it's close to meat, it's not that juicy, but the consistency is perfect. This is meat to me.... It's really something to bite on and I think the look is quite similar.

That was a €250,000 burger, funded, it turns out, by Sergey Brin. Support for cultured meat comes from many places, including PETA, which had offered $1 million to a company that could create lab-grown chicken by 2012.

What's Next?

Estimations based on current technologies say the cost of in vitro chicken meat could be about double the cost of conventionally grown chickens. Mark Post, the leader of the Maastricht team, estimates the marginal cost of the €250,000 burger was about €8.

We can expect new technologies and markets to bring prices down and quality and production up. The Second International Conference on Cultured Meat happens this October.

Though most of the market is looking at food, there are many other openings (I'm personally hoping for a lab-grown fur coat that never harmed a mink). Who knows what pick axes this gold rush of a burgeoning burger market will need?

World's hottest chilli pepper goes on sale at Tesco: are you brave enough to try it? 

World's hottest chilli pepper goes on sale at Tesco: are you brave enough to try it?  | i Cook | Scoop.it
19 JULY 2016 • 1:53PM

If you prefer your meals a little hotter than most, you're in for a treat. Just in time for scorching temperatures across the UK, Tesco has today announced it will be selling the Carolina Reaper - the world's hottest chilli pepper - in its stores from tomorrow.

Beware though, these fiery peppers must be handled with care: wear gloves while prepping, or you could get a painful shock if you touch your eyes and skin. The Carolina Reaper is not meant to be eaten raw, or whole - just a tiny sliver is needed when cooking.

Some of those who have over-indulged in the Carolina Reaper have experienced nasty side-effects: chilli fans report severe heartburn,stomach cramps and diarrhea, usually sustained after Man v Food-style eating competitions.

Different outlets give conflicting reports of just how hot the pepper is, with the Guinness Book of Records measuring it at an impressive 1.5 million Scovilles - the official scale used to assess chillies' heat - while a recent independent test recorded a heat level of an incredible 2.2 million Scovilles.

To put it in perspective, the more common Jalapeno pepper measures in at just 3500 Scovilles.

Can you handle the heat? CREDIT: TESCO

Tesco last year began selling the Komodo Dragon chilli pepper in its stores, which has a heat level of 1.4 million Scovilles, but believes the Carolina Reaper will overtake it in terms of popularity.

Tesco chilli pepper buyer Phoebe Burgess said: "The Carolina Reaper is absolute meltdown material - it's one for absolute hot food connoisseurs.
