Could synthetic burgers take over our meat world?
Sergey Brin, the founder of the search-engine giant who oversees the company’s investments in future products, has bankrolled the first test-tube burger, which cost 250,000 euros (about $331,450) to create in a lab in the Netherlands. According to a Cultured Beef spokesperson, the total project, which will go beyond this first burger and includes other expenses, cost close to 750,000 euros (about $994,200), “much of which was provided by Sergey Brin.”
Surely, science lovers and organic eaters are enjoying all of this. Three hundred thousand dollars!!! That’s a lot of money for a burger that may not be super. Would you eat this if it was affordable?
