A Bay-area company has upended the meatless meat industry with a new, mind-boggling (seriously, I'm perplexed) category of meatless meat: air-based meat.

Yes, that's right, Air Protein today announced the launch of an air-based meat substance that can be used to make burgers, chicken, turkey or virtually any meat product you want it to be. You can even use this air-based product to make protein-enriched pastas, cereals and beverages.

The product itself looks much like a protein powder, but consists only of elements found in the air, specifically carbon dioxide, oxygen and nitrogen, which are then blended with water and mineral nutrients to create a base. Using renewable energy and a probiotic production process (fermentation), Air Protein converts the elements into an edible product (the powder base) with an amino acid profile similar to that of real meat -- it contains all nine essential amino acids, so it's a complete protein.

Impossible Burger makes its grocery store debut in Southern California

Impossible Burger makes its grocery store debut in Southern California Impossible Burger will soon be available at your local grocer. The company announced that starting on September 20th its plant burgers will be available at Gelson's Markets in Southern California, marking the first time customers can buy them in grocery stores. The burgers will be available in other grocery store chains in the state later this month, just as the brand makes its debut in East Coast grocery stores. Eventually, Impossible Burger plans to be available in grocery stores in every region nationwide by mid-2020. Impossible Burger will be sold in 12-ounce packages at Gelson's for $8.99 each. Considering that a serving size is 4 ounces, that's about $3 a burger.

The new analysis shows that while meat and dairy provide just 18% of calories and 37% of protein , it uses the vast majority – 83% – of farmland and The scientists also found that even the very lowest impact meat and dairy products still cause much more environmental harm than the least sustainable

Air Protein is also fortified with vitamins, including vitamin B12, which is primarily found in animal products and is difficult for many vegans and vegetarians to get enough of in their diets.

CEO of Air Protein Lisa Dyson started the company after realizing that single-cell organisms could convert carbon dioxide into nutrients. The question was, essentially, if they could do it, why couldn't humans?

Air Protein is a sister company of Kiverdi, a company that focuses on using carbon dioxide to make environmentally friendly products, such as plastics and soil. You're going to have to wait a while before you'll see any meat made from air on store shelves, since the company is still working on turning their tech into tangible consumer products.

Cooking the New Impossible Burger Makes Me Hungry for Beef

  Cooking the New Impossible Burger Makes Me Hungry for Beef Impossible Foods finally started selling its new fake ground beef in grocery stores. Well, more specifically, you can buy Impossible Burger 2.0 at Gelson’s Market in Southern California, but the company plans a nationwide rollout soon. We got our hands on a couple of bricks of the stuff and cooked up some burgers and tacos. They tasted good! The feeling of raw Impossible chuck between my fingers, however, is something I will not soon forget. One adjective stands out: slimy. Impossible not-meat is essentially based on soy and animal protein, and the formula also includes sunflower and coconut oil to simulate the presence of animal fat and also help it sizzle on the grill.

The man- made " meat " industry just got even more interesting. It's not like you can make food out of thin air . When the company claims its single-celled protein is "free from agricultural limitations," they're not kidding. Being produced indoors means Solar Foods is not dependent on arable land

A Finnish company that makes food from electricity, water and air has said it plans to The microbes create protein , which is then dried to make the powder. Pre-engineering on a full-scale factory had just started, he added. “It is a completely new kind of food, a new kind of protein , different to all the

Can you believe the meat on that plate is made of air?

It's too soon to tell how this air-based protein compares to real or faux meat in terms of long-term health, but maybe it has the potential to beat both in terms of environmental health.

I'm not sure Air Protein is the product that will convince wary omnivores to go vegan, but it's certainly a leap for the meatless meat industry and gives us something to ponder while we wait to see if the FDA approves cell-based meat for consumption.
