You can now visit EPIC, the world’s most advanced lab-grown meat facility

Posted by in category: food

UPSIDE Foods (formerly Memphis Meats) has opened what it claims is the world’s most advanced cultivated meat production facility — and it wants you to stop by.

Cultivated meat: Demand for meat is higher than ever, but the process of raising and slaughtering livestock is bad for the environment (and arguably unethical), so transitioning away from it has a lot of upsides.

As New York prepares for the imminent launch of legal adult-use marijuana sales, the governor has signed a bill aimed at expanding the state’s hemp market by promoting collaborative partnerships to identify more opportunities to utilize the crop and its derivatives for packaging, construction and other purposes.

Bill sponsor Sen. Michelle Hinchey (D) announced on Tuesday that Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) approved her legislation late last month. It would amend a section of New York’s agriculture law that deals with hemp economic development, mandating that the agriculture commissioner consult with additional partners on ways to incorporate hemp products into business operations throughout the state.

‘Virovore’: Scientists discover an organism that eats viruses

Posted by in category: food

Researchers have found what may be the first-ever “virovore” or an organism which eats viruses. The study was published last week, in the PNAS journal by scientists at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the United States, which found two plankton organisms named Halteria and Paramecium, can not only feed on viruses but also thrive by consuming them.

Solar System Moons: Pan

Posted by in categories: food, space

If one were to argue that space is made of food, one such moon of Saturn would make a great case for it, as this ravioli-shaped object orbits the ringed planet while exhibiting a ring of its own, only it’s a lot more solid than Saturn’s massive hula hoops and is often referred to as its equatorial bulge. This is Saturn’s moon, Pan, which was discovered by M.R. Showalter in 1990 after examining Voyager 2 images from 1981.

This startup makes high-tech protein from thin air

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, economics, food

Solar Foods, a Finnish food tech company famed for its approach toward alternative protein — made of microbes cultured with electricity and air, is ready to make giant strides in 2023. The company is building its first commercial-scale factory near Helsinki, Finland, that can make food directly from carbon dioxide, New Scientist reported.

The alternative protein, Solein, and its usage in various foods have already been tested in a pilot factory for two years. Recently, Business Finland approved a €34 million grant funding to Solar Foods, making it the largest public grant funding for cellular agriculture in the world. In September 2022, Solar Foods was also selected to be a part of the European Commission’s strategic hydrogen economy core.

Although we’ve been socialized to accept death as an inevitability, and live our lives knowing that its looming shadow will one day catch up with us, many of us might never really come to terms with it. Throughout our evolution, we’ve come up with ideas, beliefs and theories that attempt to shine a light deep into the cold, dark abyss of death to give ourselves a hope of continued living and everlasting existence. Could we really stop our cells from aging? If you could, would you want to be immortal?
