No, but it sounds like this burger and McCrapples burgers already have one thing in common according to this guy:

Chicago-based author of Taste of Tomorrow, Josh Schonwald: "The mouthfeel is like meat. I miss the fat, there's a leanness to it, but the general bite feels like a hamburger. What was consistently different was flavor."

I can't believe they went to all this trouble
to copy meat-

Looking at it from a vegetarian point of view..

Stick a few spuds, carrots, parsnips, onions etc in a
pot .. Sprinkle in a veggie stock cube,
cook slowly ...

....

and Bob's youruncle(:

Sounds like the pink slime they used to incorporate in cheap ground beef,only more high tech. I'll pass. If there ain't veins in it-it ain't meat.

Bet ya it's pretty common in 20 years. Once they perfect it, it will be much cheaper than raising animals and better for the planet. And if they can get the taste right and the right combination of muscle and fat, what's the difference? It's the same tissue.

Unless, I am mistaken, this frankenburger is also not genetically modified. They grow the same muscle tissue, taken from a cow, in a lab. In the future they will be able to grow organs (I think they already can do this to a limited degree) for folks who need them and transplants from living humans won't be necessary.

If they can grow meat that tastes the same and is the same as meat from a living animal, why not? No animals need to be killed, meat will be able to be produced with less resources, less farmland, and less environmental impact, and it can probably be done such that there are hormones or antibiotics in the end product.

I dunno, I wouldn't say I'm adventurous when it comes to eating food (I won't eat oysters or liver, just from the ick factor) either, but it doesn't bother me that bad.

I think eventually it will be very common place.

I don't know, really.(lol) Something about the word tissue just struck me off.
Now y'all mentioned transplant organ stuff.
Yes, they are doing that now in a limited way. They grew a human ear on a mouse.
I think skin for burn victims has been grown in a Petri dish. A plastic form or mold was used to shape a new face reconstruction for the guy who was electrocuted or that lady chewed up by the ape.
Used the patients own cells.

Ah ha. Here it is:
Scientists growing ears, bone, skin to heal wounded troops
Lab-grown ears, spray-on skin cells, muscles grown from pig tissue and face transplants are all examples of the amazing strides in regenerative medicine being made by a network of top doctors and scientists to heal troops wounded on the battlefield.
