    Waitier! There's corn in my steak!!

    Japanese Make "Delicious", Nourishing Steaks From Human Feces
    Jason Mick (Blog) - June 17, 2011 10:51 AM

    Mankind's food chain may become a loop

    Mankind has come up with all sorts of ideas for new meat sources from cloned animals to chowing down on insects, but this idea may be the most outlandish yet.

    The Tokyo Sewage service in Japan serves over 13 million people over approximately a 2,200 square kilometer area. It approached Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, with an unusual problem -- it had too much "sewer mud" (also known as human excrement).

    It turns out human excrement is a breeding ground for scores of bacteria. So Mr. Ikeda cooked up an unusual solution -- make food [video] out of the feces.

    The first step is to cook the bacteria, killing them, and to extract their proteins via separation techniques according to Yahoo News. Soy protein is added to enhance the flavor. The meat mixture travels to a "reaction enhancer" (likely a chemical reactor of some sort) where it turns into a textured "meat" and is then extrude through an "exploder".

    The delicious "steak" is even finished with red food color to give it a comforting hue. Mr. Ikeda claims that in initial testing people found the feces steak to taste somewhat like beef.

    Mr. Ikeda is afraid the main obstacle to deploying excrement meat to the masses is the "psychological barrier." He states, "I admit that few people would be keen to eat it knowing its made of human excrement."

    Indeed, the concept of "fake" meat alone is hard for some to swallow. Taco Bell was recently sued when diners discovered that its beef mixed "fake meat" filers with real meat.

    How much would the "meat" cost? Mr. Ikeda comments, "As far as the cost is concerned, because at the moment it includes the cost of research our artificial meat is 10 to 20 times more expensive than normal meat. But once the research is complete and it's put on the market, we'll probably be able to price it at roughly the same level as normal meat."

    The new "meat" is also healthier than traditional meat as itís an ideal mix of 63% proteins, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. The small fat content, in particular makes the feces steaks healthier than their animal counterpart.

    The new meat would also cut down on the greenhouse gas emissions, which traditional livestock produce. In that regard it could even earn "carbon credits" helping its price to be cheaper than animal-derived meat.

    The idea may sound crazy, but consider that Japan is no stranger to fine meat products. Its Kobe region beef is renowned by connoisseurs worldwide for it's delicious flavor.

    And as the band Pink Floyd famously sang, "If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any pudding. How can you have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?!"

    It seems they have already named it. If you watch the vid, the fridge they keep the "steaks" in is labeled "Sh1t Burger" Haha! Thats disgusting.

    I can see it all now. At your local fast food place you get a **** sandwich,
    log fries, and pissade for 10 Yen. The ****ing earth is exploding as we eat
    our own ****. Next thing you know the Canadians will trade trees to the
    Japanese for the **** sandwiches. Eh?

    I'll stick to killing deer for my protein while you *****es eat your own ****.

    Who the **** would even think of making steaks out of "sewer mud" for that matter why is it called "sewer mud" and not ****?

    Why do people think if you add soy to something it makes it ok to eat?

    Turdfo

    I weep for the future.

    In a thread about the Japanese eating turd burgers, you object to the misspelling of "waiter."

    A matter of principle, I presume?
