Only In Japan: Sewage Mud Used To Make ‘Meat’ Substitute

Posted by | June 17, 2011 | Only In Japan | One Comment

Japanese scientist Mitsuyuki Ikeda has come up with a way to create “fake” meat from sewage… apparently, his process involves taking the sewage, extracting the protein, adding a reaction enhancer, and putting it through an “exploder”. The “fake” meat or meat substitute is great for the environment and has less fat than regular meat, and is made up of 63% proteins (including the addition of soy protein), 25% carbohydrates, 9% minerals, and 3% lipids. Apparently the bacteria in the sewage is harmless because it is killed by heat during the manufacturing process… The only question is… would you really eat this crap (pun intended) knowing how it’s made? Gross… Video after the break.
