Will we relinquish choice in an attempt to feed the world?
Recent developments in genetic engineering suggest unlimited possibilities.
What if we had an optimized synthetic crop, durable, easy to harvest and process?
In the future, we’ll buy customized nutrient and flavor mixes and inject them into the perfect, neutral basic substance.
The little food printer prints out the plant-based carbohydrate/protein

What if processed food becomes the ultimate health kick?
Could the combination of rationed basis and bespoke nutrient mixtures be the answer to the complex quest towards a healthy and affordable diet for everybody?
Can the food industry undo years of horrible choices?
