a veggie burger that bleeds

Just in time for Hallowe'en, it seems that a biochemical wizard has designed a veggie burger patty stuffed with heme molecules to replicate the visual of a meat-burger cooked rare that emits bloody juices.


That noted, I continue to be perplexed by the amount of effort some put into replicating the visual and textural experience of eating meaty things when they are not eating meat, especially those who have made such dietary choices based on strongly held personal convictions about the animal/meat/food industry.

Now, if only said patty could also emit a mournful death-moo every time one takes a bite... that would be a thing to behold.
