Japan scientist synthesizes meat from human feces

Linkedin

poop burger 1Somehow this feels like a Vonnegut plotline: population boom equals food shortage. Solution? Synthesize food from human waste matter. Absurd yes, but Japanese scientists have actually discovered a way to create edible steaks from human feces.

Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, has developed steaks based on proteins from human excrement. Tokyo Sewage approached the scientist because of an overabundance of sewage mud. They asked him to explore the possible uses of the sewage and Ikeda found that the mud contained a great deal of protein because of all the bacteria.

The researchers then extracted those proteins, combined them with a reaction enhancer and put it in an exploder which created the artificial steak. The “meat” is 63% proteins, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. The researchers color the poop meat red with food coloring and enhance the flavor with soy protein. Initial tests have people saying it even tastes like beef.

Inhabitat notes that “the meatpacking industry causes 18 percent of our greenhouse gas emissions, mostly due to the release of methane from animals.” Livestock also consume huge amounts of resources and space in efforts to feed ourselves as well as the controversy over cruelty to animals. Ikeda’s recycled poop burger would reduce waste and emissions, not to mention obliterating Dante’s circle for gluttons.

The scientists hope to price it the same as actual meat, but at the moment the excrement steaks are ten to twenty times the price they should be thanks to the cost of research. Professor Ikeda understands the psychological barriers that need to be surmounted knowing that your food is made from human feces. They hope that once the research is complete, people will be able to overlook that ugly detail in favor of perks like environmental responsibility, cost and the fact that the meat will have fewer calories.

Waste not; want not.

    That's almost as disgusting as the way cows and pigs and chickens and horses are inhumanely slaughtered. Did you know that a pig is as intelligent as the average 3 year old human? And they don't have a liver, so all the toxins remain in their meat. I have been a vegetarian for a couple of months now.
    1. You are mistaken - - Pigs have a very LARGE liver

    Ok then you eat the sh*t burgers instead! You're the moron!! Anyone with an ounce of common sense would be disgusted by this. There is a Big difference between recycled feces (something that comes from another being's a** just in case you forgot) and a hormone/antibiotic pumped pus filled cow force fed his rendered brethren. At least some of us can stand to eat the latter. What are they gonna do with the sh*t that comes from eating sh*t burgers, which comes from eating sh*t burgers and so on and on, market that too?

    The Japs are crazy. Please research the long term effects of eating this. I don't think it will be beneficial to us. Although I know I will never buy a piece of poop steak at the supermarket to serve it for dinner, but the I am not so sure the restaurants or other processed meat industry will use it, if the price is cheaper then real meat. This is worrying.

    I have lived in Japan for years, and they, well eat a lot of weird shit. For example, the gonads of some big huge mail fish. Raw! Smells just like male human cum. Now, if we took some of that, and made a sherbert out of it, it might go well with a shit steak sandwich. I was also thinking...why buy expensive olive oil, when you can make your very own smegma butter paste. Oh, by the way, do not throw away those used condoms. The sheaths are perfect for making shit sausages with the leftovers you might have. I am a humorist by the way. you can read all about my views of Japan, with little writing actually but a lot of pictures at samuraishonan (dot) blogspot (dot) com You will laugh

    The possibilities for closed circuit systems for deep space exploration alone validate this research. Humans have always been creatures of necessity; and as such will only adjust their norms when it is their best intrests. This will not amount to much now but in the forseeable future it may be the way to stabilize the worldwide food shortages that plague developing nations.
  33. This is full of win, what will they think of next?

    I think wonderful Japanese shit burgers should immediately be imported and marketed in the good old USA under the the trade-name "meaces". Just think for a moment, by eating recycled human shit, terrible carbon footprints are reduced or eliminated. Further, no bovines need to be slaughtered, which will satisfy the animal lovers of PETA. Even someone like Paul McCartney would be able to enjoy and assimilate needed amino acids that he cannot acquire from a simple vegetarian diet.

    Can you imagine a nice, tasty chub of garden-fresh, richly marbled meaces offered at the local Safeway at say, $1.99 a pound?

    Or juicy, breaded McMeaces nuggets, drenched in barbecue sauce, at the local McDonald's? Or better yet, a hot, fresh off the grill, Big Meaces for only 99 cents, consisting of two all meaces patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions - on a sesame seed bun?

    Or a tasty, mouthwatering slice of meacesloaf fresh from the oven, with an ample side of corn and mashed potatoes, at Boston Market?

    Public service advertisements could be created to condition the populace into accepting meaces, with smiling children with empty plates saying "More meaces, mom!" Even T shirts, emblazoned with "I eat my meaces" could be created to further promote acceptance.

    Now if they can turn urine into milk, trade-named as "miss", with vitamin P, we won't even have any need for cows, letting them die off naturally, and can further reduce terrible greenhouse gases like methane.

    Yet another trade-name for this wonderful creation - "feat", complete with this slogan - "If you eat your feet you won't get fat!" Or, one for finicky eaters: "How can you have any pudding if you won't eat your feat?"

    what if they can economically make the poop into just protein and not steaks and then use it as high protein animal feed to make more meat? That's not as gross. eating a steak made of turd or eating a cow which was raised eating turds.

    Animal and enviro Mentals will tout this as a viable alternative to meat. It will only be a matter of time before this is foisted upon a population as mandatory.

    Are you doing something now?

    Or will you and your family be eating pooburgers?

    Even though this is not literally a fecal matter burger, I will never be willing to eat it. I happen to know very well what processed meats go through (bleach in some cases), but I cannot justify the personal consumption of proteins re-certified from fecal matter into my diet. Similarly I will not be drinking water that was essentially recycled urine. Before I am flamed with "how bad meat is" guess what, this stuff was once meat. Sorry, but this is worse than Soylent green imo. GREAT research on ways of feeding pets and other animals (who actually do eat feces). /thread.
    1. I love how you state that you refuse to drink water which is essentially recycled piss when there is NO pure clean water anywhere on this planet. Every drop of water on Earth has been pissed in, crapped in, bleed in and bred in for billions of years, yet YOU drink it on a daily basis. Where do you think the water you drink comes from? It is sent down the drain to blend in with fecal laden sewage water to go to waste and water treatment plants to be cleaned, purified and shipped right back out to you. So not only did it have piss in it, it also had feces, insects, plant matter, thousands of medications and decomposing animals. Not to mention that many of the animals you consume gain nutrients by the re-consumption of their own feces. So by eating them, you are eating their feces. I am sorry to say that in this case ignorance is not bliss, just sheer stupidity.

    On the other hand, once you get beyond the source, the potenial for a closed system required for long distance space flight is enormous. Air and water are already recycled fairly easily, turning solid waste into edible protein could be just what we need to get off this rock for it's own good

For only 5.95 shipping and handling, we'll through in our famous pOOpsteak deodorizer and your very own pOOp recycling kit. Yes, you too can put a tube up your (deleted) and enjoy harvesting your own homegrown pOOpsteak materials. What a deal!

    The burger includes proteins recovered from feces, not a whole bunch of feces itself. If you learned more about what actually goes into a lot of meat products, you would hopefully be similarly grossed out. This makes a lot of sense - recycling in a way and solving a problem of what to do with human waste. Before you start making extremely judgemental statements about the ingredients of this new food, take a look at the ingredients of what you're already eating.

      Let's take a look at your logic. You are comparing, say, a chicken breast fillet or a T-bone steak or even a turkey sandwich to (proteins extracted from) fecal matter. Are you seriously considering this comparison or are you just trying to mislead through ignorant vegetarian propaganda? If you're going to vomit bullshit, at least try not to generalize subjects whose majorities don't actually fit your descriptions.
      Before you start making extremely judgmental statements about real meat products, take a look at your own logic.
      Omnivore and proud of it.

      On another note, the quality of the shit (protein) burger, even if once at the peak of cleanliness, would likely decline over time much the same as the quality of several meat products (like cheap hamburger meat and really cheap hotdogs). Over time, the lack of actual fecal matter in the amassed proteins would rise due to a steady decline in diligence. At some point, the percentage of fecal matter in the product would reach unhealthy levels and we likely wouldn't even know it until it were too late.

    2. Make sure you save it, might be able to use it as dessert
    3. It's the new read (er...brown) meat! Jeeze, can't they grow a cow?
      1. Brian - the whole point (whether the basic article is true or a hoax) is that the planet is being wrecked to grow ever more cows for cow eaters such as us. Cows create methane, we create methane - there's a certain bizarre recycling logic behind this. Not that I'll be queueing up to buy it. It's also bizarre that this stuff comes from the same nation that produces the most expensive beef around (Wagyu, a.k.a. Kobe beef)

      Okay I won't be eating it knowingly but practical uses, dog food, animal feed, and emergency rations. i ALSO ARGUE THE HUMAN FECES POINT.heres why bacteria forms to consume anything that they can feed on and feces is just one source. Its no more eating poop then eating wheat bread because its the product of the bacteria we are eating not what the bacteria consumed directly.

      But personally I see this will be a hoax, clues! I doubt seriously they would have put the English words shit burger on the refrigerator as seen in the video or used the artificial hand pointer. The lack of sophistication in the video is not characteristic of Japanese who are known for professionalism and expertise. i SAY ITS A HOAX,

      We already drink water recycled from sewage.
      We use animal feces for fertilizer to grow food.
      Honey is bee saliva.
      Cheese is made from animal digestive enzymes
      Yogurt is soured milk.

      Come on, people...grow up!
