<div class="quote-block">Patrick Brown, a vegan molecular biologist at Stanford University claims that he has developed a plant-based product that replicates the taste and texture of meat.<br>
During a press conference held at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Vancouver, <a href="http://www.livescience.com/18558-scientist-cooks-meatless-product-meat-lovers.html" target="_blank">Brown revealed</a> that he began his work several years ago when he decided to focus on solving the problem of animal agriculture. He described animal farming as an inefficient technology millennia old that also represents by far the biggest environmental catastrophe.<br>
We can do more good by taking on the simple task of figuring out how to convert cheap, abundant sustainable plant materials into nutrient-dense, protein-rich foods that people deliberately choose to eat based on taste and value, Brown said, [Rather] than by coming up with imagining sustainable, renewable energy sources or a car that can run for a thousand miles per gallon.<br>
Brown, who has been a vegetarian for more than 30 years and a <a href="http://www.forbes.com/forbes/2009/1130/thought-leaders-mcdonalds-global-warming-drop-that-burger.html" target="_blank">vegan for more than 6 years</a> said he is funded by an American venture capital firm and has two start-ups in California.<br>
Interestingly, Browns meat replacement is not lab-grown, because Brown believes that developing meat from animal cells in a laboratory will still have a high environmental cost. Instead, Brown plans to rely only on plant-based sources to develop products that could replace meat and dairy</div>

Cooool, we need more vegan molecular biologists! It's totally plant based so I'd try it, I wonder if this will be the next big discovery like Daiya cheese <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/3/34/34d95de2_vbattach17804.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/3/34/525x525px-LL-34d95de2_vbattach17804.jpeg" style="width:525px;height:406px;"></a>

Strange, the article doesn't say what it is made of. It only says it's plant-based. Also, it's cool that he's working on a dairy alternative products, too. I love the advancements that have taken place in the past decade and this one may bring veg*nism to new heights.

I'm curious about that too, as long as it's plant based I'll try it.

Here's another product: <a href="http://www.plenti.eu/index.php" target="_blank">http://www.plenti.eu/index.php</a>

It seems that there are already many good meat alternative products on the market, but it's always nice to see more.

The idea is to keep making products that are more and more like the real thing. One less excuse for meat eaters who try vegetarianism to go back for taste reasons, which many do. Vegan foods that are more appealing to a wider audience can only be a good thing for the animals in the long run.

I recall there was a scientist who was looking for money from governments for a meat substitute and apparently was unsuccessful. Is this the same person? I wish him luck, but it's hard to be optimistic with issues like this.

I promise not to make a habit of doing this.<br><br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQCP85FngzE</a>
