Consumers are increasingly sensitized to topics like animal rights and global food shortages. Start-ups and inventors are therefore looking for new, nutritious food resources, including eggs with plant-based ingredients, chocolate bars made of insect flour, 3D-printed algae and lab-produced meat.
Even the exclusive consumption of ready-made products like Soylent, which meets all nutritional requirements for adults, are growing in popularity. Synthetically produced food products could therefore one day establish themselves as an alternative to factory farming and genetically modified crops. This is all good news for vegans and vegetarians, who do not eat meat for moral reasons.
