Delicious – period. In Korea, created a meat substitute from insect larvae

Researchers in South Korea have created a meat substitute using sugar and proteins extracted from the bodies of mealworm larvae, insects used in laboratories to experiment and feed small animals. This was reported by the American Chemical Society (ACS).

Rising meat prices and global warming have forced us to rethink the possibility of eating insects. Their body contains all the necessary fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and proteins. We hope that the method of processing flour beetle larvae developed by us will lead to the appearance of artificial analogues of meat and “meat sauces” based on these insects.”, – said the professor of Wonkwan University in Iksan (South Korea) Cho Eun-hee.

Professor Cho Eun-hee and his colleagues analyzed how the taste and aroma of beetroot larvae change when they are fried, steamed or otherwise cooked, and they also made similar measurements for regular beef. Chemists used this information to isolate those volatile molecules that give real meat its characteristic taste and aroma.

And this is how it looks like what it will be made of

The analysis indicated that “meaty” flavors could be enhanced by roasting whole or ground beetle larvae if they were pre-treated with sugar and some other simple reagents. Subsequent experiments and tasting of the final product showed that the edible beetroot protein paste acquired a typically meaty taste and aroma.

As the scientists hope, their technique will serve as the basis for creating new brands of animal meat substitutes, as well as various sauces and dressings that give dishes a bright taste and aroma of beef and other varieties of meat products. This will reduce the cost of such products and allow humanity to actively fight climate change, the scientists concluded.

In the last ten years, biotechnologists from all over the world have been actively working on the creation of artificial analogues of meat, consisting of cultures of muscle cells from cows and other domestic animals. In addition, scientists are trying to replicate the taste of meat and its nutritional qualities using plant or bacterial proteins, as well as body tissues of various invertebrates.

These technologies, scientists hope, will help make meat production safer for the environment and climate, as well as make it more affordable for consumers. On the other hand, so far, researchers have not been able to fully reproduce the taste of meat, as well as make its analogues attractive to all consumers.

The cost of Band 7 has decreased from 269 yuan ($38) to 219 yuan ($30.5), Band 7 NFC previously cost 309 yuan ($43.5), now its cost is 259 yuan ($36.5).

Huawei Band 7, recall, debuted on April 28 this year. The bracelet is 9.99 mm thick and weighs 16 grams. The device is equipped with a 1.47-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 368 x 194 pixels, heart rate and SpO2 sensors. The firmware provides 96 training modes, sleep and menstrual cycle monitoring systems. The maximum autonomy is 14 days.

Firefly Aerospace a private space company successfully launched a rocket

Firefly Aerospace has successfully launched an Alpha rocket and placed seven research mini-satellites into orbit. Some of them were launched in the interests of NASA, there are also satellites created in Spain and Greece. The launch was made from the base of the US Space Force Wadenberg.

Firefly Aerospace, a private space company, successfully launched a rocket and put several mini-satellites into orbit.

The Alpha rocket is a lightweight rocket, meaning it can launch approximately 1.2 tons of payload. This is the second rocket launch, the first took place in September last year, but the rocket exploded after launch due to the failure of one of the engines. This time everything went smoothly. The mission itself is called Alpha Flight 2: To The Black.

At the same time, the launch was originally planned for the morning of September 30, but the rocket engines turned off almost immediately after they were launched – the automatic abort system worked. The reasons for this were not explained, the company only reported that such behavior was provided for by the security system.

Firefly Aerospace intends to take part of the small satellite launch market. Each launch is valued at $15 million. Thus, the company intends to compete with SpaceX, Rocket Lab, Virgin Orbit and Astra. Firefly Aerospace is a privately held aerospace company headquartered in Austin, Texas.

Meta Corporation has made non-fungible token (NFT) related features available to all US Instagram and Facebook users.

Meta* allows Facebook and Instagram users to connect their wallets and exchange NFTs

The ability to work with NFT on Instagram has been tested since May, but on Thursday this functionality of the service became available to every user in the United States.

Meta* allows Facebook and Instagram users to connect their wallets and exchange NFTs

Users can connect wallets from Coinbase, Dapper Labs, MetaMask, Rainbow and Trust to Instagram. According to the blog post, Instagram users can also post their NFTs to their Facebook accounts.

The corporation also allowed NFT to be shared by all Instagram users from 100 countries who participate in the pilot project.

“Today we are announcing that all Facebook and Instagram users in the US can now connect their wallets and share their digital collectibles,” the Meta said in a post. “In addition, all 100 countries where digital collectibles are available on Instagram can now access this feature.”

The announcement comes after CEO Mark Zuckerberg sold the NFT of his childhood baseball card for $105,000.
