You read right – I just ordered a stem cell burger. And right now, that burger will cost $332,000. Crazy, huh? It’s more than crazy, it’s INSANE.
Today, we have reached a dangerous cross-roads in our food supply, and it appears that being vegan isn’t good enough for our decision-makers anymore – they want to dominate the grocery shelves with stem cell burgers as ultimate nutrition.
Forget meat – real meat, I mean.
Stem Cell Burgers
Stem cell burgers are “cultured beef” grown from stem cells taken from a cow. Mark Post of Maastricht University invented the patty, hoping that it will one day look, feel and taste like the real thing.
Call me old-fashioned, but this is gross to me.
It takes almost 20,000 cell strands to make one 5-ounce patty, and during a taste test, the patty was seasoned with salt, egg powder, breadcrumbs, red beet juice and saffron – to make it look like a “real meat patty“, the cultured meat is colored with beetroot juice to change its true color from white to red.
For the burger to be approved for market, research will be needed to show that the product is safe, nutritionally equivalent to existing meat products, and will not be at risk of misleading consumers.
Unlike the lack of labels for GMOs, this lab meat certainly needs to be labeled.
How To Make A Stem Cell Burger
- Take some stems cells from a cow;
- Put them in a large dish and add nutrients and growth promoting chemicals;
- Leave to multiply;
- Three weeks later there will be more than a million stem cells. Put these into smaller dishes to fuse into small strips of muscle, a centimeter or so long and a few millimeters thick;
- Collect these strips into small pellets and freeze until there are enough to form a burger;
- Defrost the pellets and put together just before cooking.
No thanks, I think I’ll have a salad.
What’s In The Beyond Burger?
The Beyond Burger is a plant-based burger that is designed to look, cook, and satisfy like beef. It has the juicy, meaty texture of a traditional burger, but comes with the upsides of a plant-based meal. The Beyond Burger has 20 g of plant-based protein and has no GMOs, soy, or gluten.

I choose a quality real meat burger, thank you very much. As animal meat is predicted to be harder to find in the future, here are two alternative choices.
Do you want fries with that burger?
