|"The butcher plant produces raw protein, not true meat, but a protein product that can be processed like meat, maybe think of it more like a really exotic nut plant. Because nuts tend to be more protein. So instead of growing wheat or a flour product, this plant grows a high energy protein like a nut, but on a higher level."|

|"There is also a japanese mushroom that tastes just like steak and has the protein equivalent. It's been around for quite a while.|
(Which variety? The shitake mushroom is considered high in protein, but no more so than beans or other vegetable sources. According to the all-knowing Internet, that is. The only vegetable that even comes close is soy beans.)"

|"I just wanted to post a (somewhat belated) reply to an earlier post by Tim Morrison. The butcher plant produces what amounts to a 'steak'; one of the characters actually grills them as is, straight from the plant.
Also, I found a new link to the Protato."|
