Not Dogs Anyone?

Meatless Market Goes Mainstream

Being a carnivore can be confusing. Few have been able to identify the species of origin of the “mystery meat” served by airlines, and the perennial debate in school cafeterias as to which unmentionable animals parts have made their way into the hot dogs will probably never be settled. But today, there’s a growing array of products available which originate not on the hoof but in the field—soybean and wheat fields, to be precise. Some so succesfully imiate the taste and texture of meat that fast food fans are duped and vegetarians unsettled by the sinewy similarity of these products.
