Japanese scientists have found a way to make artificial meat from human faeces.

A researcher, Ikeda, was approached by Tokyo Sewage to figure out a way to deal with the mountains of sewage mud that the Japanese are producing in their everyday lives.

Ikeda, either a genius or a prankster, apparently decided not to take the conventional paths of either fuel or fertiliser. Instead, he decided to solve the world food problem by making food from the mountain of poop.

Ikeda had found the sewage to be chock full of “delicious proteins” due to all the bacteria we’d expect to be swimming in the crap.

Ikeda extracted these delicious proteins, combined them with a reaction enhancer, put the whole mixture in an exploder, add some food colouring to make it look red just like actual meat, add some soy protein to make it even more delicious, and voila – irresistibly yummy artificial steak.

The artificial steak is 63% protein, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. He even managed to convince people to try eating it. They say it tastes like beef.

Ikeda continues to hope to this day that people will eventually overcome what he calls “psychological barriers” to appreciate his “new meat”.

At InSing, we think a good place to start selling this new meat would be Singapore. Although it currently costs more than ten times the price of real meat, it does sound like an excellent companion to our sewage-derived Newater.
