Club Giggle’s Top 5 Foods We Will Be Eating In Future
Food experts are convinced that we’ll soon be forced to find substitutes for our limited sources of animal protein. The solution, it turns out, is right under our noses and is already a familiar staple in parts of the developing world: bugs. “Is eating grasshoppers more revolting than eating a cow?”
People in China, Africa and many other parts of world already eating insects. Insects are great source of protein compare to meat. They cost way less than live stock to raise use less water and there are over 1000 edible bugs.
2 Lab Grown Meat
Cultured meat, also called synthetic meat is meat grown in cell culture instead of inside animals. It is a form of cellular agriculture. synthetic meat is produced using many of the same tissue engineering techniques usually used in regenerative medicine.Due to technical challenges related with scale and cost reduction, synthetic meat has not yet been commercialized. The first synthetic meat burger patty, created by Dr. Mark Post at Maastricht University, was eaten at a demonstration for the press in London in August 2013.
Research has recommended that environmental impacts of synthetic meat would be considerably lower than normally slaughtered beef. For every Acre that is used for vertical farming and/or cultured meat manufacturing, anywhere between 10 and 20 Acres of land may be changed from conventional agriculture usage back into its natural state.
Cultured meat stops cruelty to animals, is better for the environment, and could be safer and more efficient, and even healthier.
So, it seems that our diet in 2050 will include more superfoods: foods with much healthier nutritional profiles than those that make up the typical Western diet. Kale is one example already familiar to many of us. The dark green super-cabbage is rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and anti-cancer compounds.
It can feed humans and animals and can be grown in the ocean, a big bonus with land and fresh water in increasingly short supply, say researchers. Many scientists also say the biofuel derived from algae could help reduce the need for fossil fuels. One example is seaweed.
4 Staying Power
Most farm crops, including wheat, rice, and maize, are planted once every year. The roots of those “annual” plants are shallow, and farmers usually use resource-intensive cultivation practices to grow them. How ever several wild plants, like wheat-grass, are “perennials” they live for many years and turn out food over several seasons. Their roots are extensive and they assist in stabilizing and building healthy soils.
5 Next Generation Fish Farms
Promising new ways of farming fish rely on large tanks. Water, nutrients, and waste are recycled, typically to grow plants and fish can’t escape. Such ways may relieve pressure on wild stocks, drastically depleted by overfishing. And closed-system fish farms don’t have similar environmental downsides as sure cage or pen fish farms that use a lot of wild fish for feed and might cause pollution and problems for wild fish.
