The laboratory-grown or plant-based meat it is already a reality in society and it has more and more followers. But things are not going to stop with beef, now a company called Finless Foods is going for the tuna. They have created a plant-based tuna meat that they say mimics the experience of eating raw tuna 100%.
Eating vegan tuna sushis, for those with a shellfish allergy or without contributing to overfishing, is going to be a reality. Finless Foods indicó what will launch the new product to the market in chain restaurants and supermarkets over the next year.
The product is made with a total of nine whole plant ingredients. They have not wanted to say what they are, but they assure that the chefs and experts who have tried it have not stopped praising it.
In principle this tuna meat can be used and eaten in the same way as real tuna. That is, it can be eaten raw or cooked depending on whether we want it to make sushi or a hot dish. Likewise, it has a great advantage over the real one: the absence of mercury, which can often be a problem in real tuna meat.
