Synthetic "meats" are becoming accepted as an alternative protein source by many consumers in Western Europe, USA and Japan. Their relatively low cost and uniform quality make tbem attractive to the catering trade.
Australians are not generally aware of their increasing use although it has been suggested that "meat-like products" are a potential threat to our meat exports. This article outlines the current situation and emphasises the need to be fully informed about such products.
The author has studied this problem for some years and kept in close contact with developments while living in the United Kingdom and Australia.
