Voronezh Scientists Turn Blood into Coffee, Milk, Chocolate [Mosnews]
Scientists from the Voronezh State Technological Academy have realized that every meat packing plant wastes about 7 tons of blood daily.
Test foods they have prepared taste like traditional foods , they say.
They ought to know, they are scientists dammit, and they love blood.
Seven tons of it, apparently.
Before you go off thinking that those Russians are a bunch of Commie Vampire Zombie Cannibals like McCarthy predicted, grock the fact unique blood proteins are metabolized (by the human body) two times faster than egg proteins.
So it's a speed issue then?
Lemme tell you, on a personal level, when it comes to metabalising things, I allow for latency -big time.
Here's hoping the Moscow Starbucks gets a blood latte soonish.
