What everyones thoughts on this?

No animals are killed in the process (apparently)

Would you eat it?

 

first of all anything that's has been done with genetic engineering science has failed to deliver up until this point and I would be wary of such meats as they will be heavily cloned cells  and given that Dolly's clones died at an earlier age than dolly seem to imply shorter telomeres which is a major factor  in cell health , I would suspect multiple chickens would have to be farmed and repeatedly killed to create a long term solution.

These kind of questions from non-meat eating Sikhs always amuse me. Firstly, if a person eats meat then fair enough, I don't care. Secondly, if you're a Sikh who doesn't eat meat but continue to hanker after non-meat products that resemble meat products, then you aren't over meat, lol.

I do not recommend eating, bcoz it has a lot of chemical and processed ingredients. Overall, it would be safer to eat real meat.

My experiments with lots of food and healthy diets, had led to the conclusion that Gods Name is the best food to be eaten, but I am still learning and trying to understand how I can eat this food.

No matter what food you eat plants, meat, fruits. You will not be immune to disease. No matter what exercise u do.

Grown chicken. Sounds like lentils, beans and rice to me.

Meat becomes an addiction, just like sugar and other foods and drinks. I stopped eating meat around 4 or 5 years ago and now I have vegan kebabs and burgers every weekend, in fact I just finished eating a vegan kebab 5 mins ago!  why? because of the meaty taste which so many people never get over. 

I'm cutting back on sugars, sweets, chocolates, and its going well so far! been drinking redbull for over 10 years, had my last can on 31st Dec 2020 and I'm gnna see how long I can resist it! there's one sitting in the fridge, constantly pestering me lol 

But I mostly now eat veg, fruit and nuts. 

Imo, if you eat meat then it should be limited. Many great nations and cultures of the past were mainly vegetarian. The Japanese/Samurai, Indians, many Chinese etc  all were great civilizations and cultures, and they mainly ate fruit and veg, meat was very limited. Gladiators mainly had plant based diets. There's a reason why all these people at mostly veg!

American culture and influence changed everything, the worlds eating habits. 

Muslims love meat, they eat meat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. In actual reality around 90% of Muhammad's diet was wheat, dates and water. Meat was rare. 

Throughout the centuries, the unsophisticated, unenlightened Brits who plodded in mud, ate meat everyday though.  

Just my opinion ...

true about meat it has a mythology around it that it is for the rich , so it gets trundled  out for special occasions , fast forward  a couple hundred years every tajinder, davinder and harjot   cannot eat his roti without maas . Kings has diseases of Affluence and now every one has , diabetes through the roof, heart disease, obesity , arthiritis and gout.
no one could afford to slaughter their only means of support through lean times , now they are oil rich they are overdoing it.

    • I'm shocked at the level of ignorant comments here. Dildos up their backsides? Kusrey? City people? First of all the reason they're called City Sikhs is because they work in the City of London, a financial district in Central London, it's got nothing to do with living in cities vs living in villages. 99% of Sikhs in the UK live in urban areas. That really went over the head of many people here. Do you expect them to look like UFC fighters?  Puzzled - can you tell me your level of education and what you do for a living?
    • I guess if it is OK for recently arrived Punjabis to settle down with East European women and have Sikh kids then there is nothing wrong in settling down with a Chinese woman. The Chinese are ultimately a dharmic people (if we take the current political situation out of the question) and have always been interested in what happens west of their border.  
    • Tbh, even "our own" can't be trusted. I personally stopped giving a damn what other people thought a long time ago, especially when it comes to rishta/marriage. 
    • In ultimate truth time is an illusion (Akal). All there is, is present the now. God created itself in many forms to create contrast ( limiting itself in forms)
    • There is a massive difference between the Sikh experience in the UK vs the US. The UK is a much better place to be a Sikh. The biggest difference-maker is population density. According to the 2011 census, there were (at the time) about 432,000 Sikhs in the UK. Accounting for some population growth and uncounted people (such as illegal immigrants), there are probably at least 500,000 Sikhs in the UK today. Now take into consideration that the UK has a population of about 67 million crammed into a relatively small island. And also consider that most of the Sikhs live in certain parts of the UK that have relatively large Sikh populations (e.g. West London, Birmingham area, etc.). There are not official figures on Sikhs in the US, but based on data about people from and Indian background and Punjab-speaking background, 250,000 is probably a very conservative upper bound on the US Sikh population. And then consider that the US is a massive country and has a population of about 330 million. As a consequence, Sikhs are much less visible and much less powerful (as a community) in the US than they are in the UK. In the UK, I feel like most people have an awareness of who Sikhs are. When I have been in the UK, it is a bit of a relief to not feel like I have to constantly point out that I'm not an Arab or a Muslim. In the US, nobody had a clue what a Sikh was when I was growing up. It is getting a bit better now, but it's still not great.   Anyway, aside from how Sikhs are viewed by the general population, I think the population density of Sikhs is most important for the Sikh community itself. It makes for a greater support system for more religiously inclined Sikhs. Further, the critical mass enables people who don't come from religious families to nevertheless gain exposure to Sikhi and get into it as they grow older. That's probably why examples of monay who become Singhs are much more frequent in the UK than in the US.
