Scientist Develops Steaks From Human Poop

Those Who've Sampled Say It Tastes Like Beef

It sounds like something out of a science fiction movie, but it's not. A scientist in Japan has created synthetic steaks from human excrement.

The researcher from a Japanese lab has developed steaks based on proteins from feces after Tokyo Sewage approached him and asked if he could explore possible uses of "sewage mud," Digital Trends reported Friday.

The website reported the artificial streak contains 63% proteins, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. The "meat" is artificially colored red.

People say the artificial meat tastes like beef, according to initial tests.
