Synthetic food: are there any nutritious components?

        Synthetic Foods are those that have been produced or manufactured using new methods with the help of advancements in technology. These types of foods usually contain a high amount of protein. Synthetic foods are developed from food substances that have been chemically synthesized. Also known as artificial foods, these foods generally imitate the appearance, odor and taste of natural foods.

Various Methods and Sources of Synthetic Foods

Artificial food products are based from traditional and nontraditional animal and plant sources. Examples of these sources include soybeans, sunflower seeds, sesame, oil cake, green vegetables, casein and marine sources. Another major source of protein for artificial foods is the protein produced by microorganisms. For instance, yeasts produce protein and are able to grow on mediums like sugar, or nonfood mediums like petroleum hydrocarbons. Because of this ability of yeasts, it has become a promising source of synthetic foods.
So, based on this information we can agree that it has nutrious components which is healthy for us.

Arguments against Synthetic Foods

       A lot of consumer groups are active in their promotion against artificial or synthetic foods. All arguments against this type of food boils down to one thing, that synthetic food is possibly harmful to one’s health. The addition of synthetic chemicals like pesticides, heavy metals, food dyes and artificial preservatives to food could already affect its composition or nutritional value. Modern techniques that are being done on food such as genetic engineering, hydrogenation or irradiation could also lead to the same effect, which could ultimately lead to the development of a number of diseases.
