...but somehow, this just seems a step too far.

As long as there's no more pressing way to use waste, I don't see what the problem is.

Yeah, if it is really just waste I think it is pretty neat.

I thought it was going to be a bear fed on tofu.

I think its kind of fascinating what they can make cloth and yarn out off. I'd really love to play with some of that and see what I could make out of it.

...

I am, of course, probably one of very few people who get that urge when presented with soy based material.

Hempseed

Hempseed is high in protein containing about 30% oil - best known for its good balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 EFA's as well as GLA. Hempseed is a nutritious source of vitamins and minerals including Beta Carotene, vitamins A, C and E. Hempseeds do not have any cholesterol. Hempseed was a staple food of the ancients, centuries ago. It has been reported that Buddha himself ate the delicious hempseed. Hempseeds may be toasted and flavoured with salt, herbs or spices for a nutritious snack.

Tofu

Like most legumes, soya beans are an excellent source of dietary fibre, complex carbohydrate and plant protein. On the negative side soya beans are relatively high in fat, although this is mainly unsaturated fat. For example, 100g dried, raw soya beans contain 35.9g protein, 15.8g carbohydrate, 8.5g water, and 18.6g fat, of which just 2.3g is saturated fat.



The world needs more hemp... for textiles, food, construction - mixed with lime it is 20% stronger than concrete and lighter), bio fuel, it's a legume so it's good for the soil ie replaces nitrogen and doesnt deplete the soil plus as some of you might of heard it has amazing social applications... I've just talked myself into a breakfast joint... That's how good it is. Shocked

I have a few hemp-blend shirts from a kickass place in Whistler which does very little to hide its "hemp...uh.... yeah.... do you want a swirly glass pipe with your purchase?" stylings... most comfortable clothing ever. Not that it does me any good in freakin' FREEZING Kingston though.

It's not real and even if it was, it wouldn't be disgusting, it'd be awesome.
