    Hey, they gotta do something with the end-rinds, the floor droppings and the food people leave on the tables. Makes good business sense to "Turn that trash into CA$H!!"
    Why do you think some guitar companies build 'Mini's', 'Little's' and 'Junior's'?

    This could do for Arby's what Jared's pants did for Subway.

    I'm still waiting for lab grown meat. It will create such a dilemma for (some) vegetarians and especially vegans. I expect many vegans heads to explode.

    (Full disclosure, I'm vegetarian, but not ideological about it. My wife and daughter eat meat. Whatever.)

    Naw, it just can't be. Totally the opposite of the correct movement.

    My head is about to explode.

    I was questioning this in another thread. Would you eat lab grown human flesh? Are there ethical issues?

    Food is best in its natural format, cooked but not re engineered.

    The last couple of refrigerated pre prepared dinners I bought had chicken in them that resembled scrambled eggs or pre digested chicken. It said chicken breast on the packing.
    I thought for a minute it was tofu which would really be crossing the line of acceptable substitutes.

    Who knows what they will end up selling as food if people keep buying the mass processed crap they market as healthy alternatives to real food.

    If it is moderately digestible, as in it will produce a turd, then by today's standards it passes as food...

    If you want to see the bleeding edge of food tech look no further than what is going into modern military rations.

    Natick food labs have been modifying "food" to the point that the word food would not describe the product.

    It should be called a "consumable sustenance product"...

    I have sampled every ration in the U.S. inventory over the last 10yrs and many many others from different countries and even time periods.

    When it comes to "food" preservation we are far ahead of everyone else as far as I am aware.

    And the technology that goes into this stuff, goes into our groceries.

    Lots of companies put very short expiration dates on products, just so people will not realize just how unnatural it really is... when something can actually survive for months or in some cases years beyond their expiration date if stored in decent conditions.
