Synth food is an abomination in all purposes.
Not only saying this because food is a religion here (France), but also because you cannot ask the industrial world to produce quality within a competitive industrial world. 20th century is over.
You won’t have quality, you will have cheap quantity because the world economical model is all about growth and endless acceleration of our economies. If your cockroach farm want to survive, it needs to accel, each year.
The taste is not the problem, I’m open to experimentation. What I see is what niche in food this tries to occupy : milk, basic product. It seems to me some fat guy in food industry found a way to produce cheaper milk, nothing else, with no concerns about taste, culture, health (after cow hormones, nice cockroach growing hormones I guess) or ecology.
This seems to me way way far from what organic food tries to do, which is something maybe 60-70% or more people of where I live agrees with. I don’t want that here. I would want slow food, all the time.
It’s not because science say you can drink pee that I will, even if some says it’s good for your health. I’m curious, okay, but MacCockroach’s is a no-no : if the discourse is “insects will save humanity”, then the only thing behind this is MacCockroach’s.
