Llegaron las Carnes de Laboratorio?

Ganaderos! Ni se preocupen por esas nuevas carnes de laboratorio. Vienen mas falsas y con veneno que las anteriores. Es otro strike. Por suerte nuestra info se esta difundiendo.

Articulo de Sally Fallon del Weston A Price Foundation:

In this post, we will focus on the Beyond Burger, which advertises itself as “The world’s first 100% plant-based burger that looks, cooks and satisfies like ground beef.”

The ingredients: pea protein isolate, expeller pressed canola oil, refined coconut oil, water, yeast extract, maltodextrin, natural flavors, gum Arabic, sunflower oil, salt, succinic acid, acetic acid, non-GMO modified food starch, cellulose from bamboo, methylcellulose, potato starch, beet juice extract (for color), citrus fruit extract (to maintain quality) and vegetable glycerin.

The company has made a few changes, according to an article in the Washington Post—amusingly titled “Little flecks of ‘fat’ put Beyond Meat’s burger a big step closer to beef”—adding bits of cocoa butter, mung bean and rice proteins, and apple extract (so that it browns better when cooked), which “improves the taste and texture of the burgers.”

Beyond Burgers are sold in a few national restaurant chains and in grocery stores.  The Silver Diner uses the Beyond Burger glop for burgers and meatballs, with a vegan meatloaf coming soon. With all the hype, the stock price has soared, up to $186 per share since its initial $25-per-share IPO.

Is the Beyond Meat burger healthy and safe to eat?  According to blogger David Gumpert, “I know many people here hate the idea of artificial-any-food, but I take a different view. So long as it’s made from healthy and natural products—in this case, a variety of plant items—I say go for it, if there’s a market for it. From all I can tell, Beyond Meat is much healthier than any of the meats put out by the Big Ag companies with their antibiotic-laden products from their polluting CAFOs.”
