Got milk? No, thanks. What once was delicious and nutritious is now just getting weird. I’ve never had a craving for human breast milk, no matter how high the nutrient content, and that is just where our super markets are heading.
Thanks to China Agricultural University, 300 dairy cows have been successfully genetically modified with human genes so that the milk duplicates the exact properties of your mother’s.
With the support of Beijing GenProtein Biotechnology Company, researchers were able to genetically modify implanted embryos with human genes using cloning technology. Now, the milk contains three human proteins: lysozyme, lactoferrinand alpha-lactalbumin. Combine these ingredients with boosted fat and milk solid content, and “their work has shown it [is] possible to ‘humanize’ cow’s milk.”
According to leader of research, Professor Ning Li, “The milk tastes stronger than normal milk,” and it is hoping to hit your breakfast bowl within the three to 10 years. To read more about this, visit http://www.telegraph.co.uk.
In the meantime, people, prepare. There are many treats that won’t be the same, but luckily, some frozen ones will remain.
There is a new spot gaining popularity in San Marcos that’s making head way with fabulous, fat-free sorbets and fresh, fruity smoothies. Twist and Shout, located at 235 North LBJ Drive, Suite A, was originally marketed for frozen yogurt and bubble tea. However, the family owned spot has a few sweet surprises to offer in dairy-free varieties as well.
Owner Lily Lee traveled from China five years ago and now her dreams are finally materializing with Twist and Shout. Aside from fresh, fruit slushies, a paradise of popsicles, shaved ice, pearl drinks with tapioca, flavored teas and coffees, there is a self-help, soft-serve station where you “do-it-yourself” for 32 cents per ounce. Two of the 10 machines are sorbets with interchangeable flavors that alternate every three to four weeks. The remaining eight are high quality, low-fat, frozen yogurts that you can drown in candy and other goods from the topping bar. Flavors include variations such as Swiss chocolate, strawberry sensation, banana pudding and Italian tart.
“What sets us apart from other shops alike is that we only use yogurt from solid base, not powder like everyone else,” Li said.
They also have an eclectic collection of exotic Asian snacks, free Wi-Fi and late night hours.
