from MIT TR “Lab-grown pet snacks could inspire future food”

A startup making animal-free animal food thinks you might like something similar.
The news: Wild Earth is launching a dog kibble made from protein produced by a fungus. It also plans to make cat food out of mouse muscle cells cultured in the lab.
Stealth veganism:Neo.Life says the firm plans to use the pet food to normalize the technology—a kind of “Trojan horse to introduce lab-grown meat for humans.”
Why it matters: Lab-grown meat, from bleeding burgers to cultured chicken, may improve animal welfare and boost food production efficiency—if folks want to eat it.
