Cricket, either as flour or as a whole can be relished with meals.
Is lab processed meat something to look for?
Scientists at few premier world-class laboratories have come up with a new brand of synthetic meat products which are produced by converting stem cells into animal tissues. According to them, cultured meat would certainly decrease the greenhouse emissions.
Farmed fish, the new generation product!
Flesh freaks can still nurture a hope, as fish foods top the list, as always. Rich in proteins, with no questions of environmental greenhouse emissions, fishes rule the roost and can hopefully continue to do well from the market standpoint.
