Cannibals and those who want to be are receiving good news!

Insider reports that a Swedish plant-based fake meat company has taken the unanswered and superfluous challenge to recreate the flavor of human meat in their burgers. So, you may let your inhibitions go and go straight to Stockholm to fulfill your heart's desire.

Plant-based meats have been around for a long time and are recommended for anyone who wish to move away from animal-sourced meats. As compared to lab-grown meats, plant-based meats have already reached an affordable price and are now available in stores near you.

Why is meat fake?

Animal-sourced meat contains many harmful fats and has been linked to various illnesses. Additionally, raising animals for consumption comes with a large environmental cost. According to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, livestock farming produces 7.1 gigatons of carbon emissions every year, which is close to 15 percent of total emissions.

Switching to fake meat can help us not only reduce carbon emissions in our effort to combat climate change, but also improve our health. Companies that produce fake meats have also reached technological maturity. These meats can mimic the taste and texture of animal-sourced meat, making it easier for consumers to switch to these new products without sacrificing their culinary experience.

Why is meat from a animal origination so fake?

As seen in the above video, the Swedish company Oumph! offered the fake human meat during Halloween last year. The intention of the campaign was never to entice people to eat other people, but to experiment with plant-based meats.

Anders Linden, the co-founder of Oumph!, said in a second YouTube video that he developed the sandwich in no time as soon as we knew what taste and texture we were after. However, before your thoughts wander, let us highlight a short tagline in the above video: "Excuse otherwise it would be creepy."

The limited-edition human meat experiment was intended to draw the attention of those who haven't yet tried it, just as yours.

The idea for the world's first fake human meat burger came from a Madrid advertising agency calledLOLA MullenLowe and Oumph! The meat is made with soy, mushroom, wheat protein, plant-based fats, and a proprietary spice blend, according to the company in an additional disclaimer.

The Oumph! website has changed since the introduction of human flesh. If you like plant-based meat, you may want to check out their other offerings.

Insider reports that the ad campaign sparked quite a storm last year and won a Silver Prize for its inventiveness at the international Cannes Lions Festival.
