The Berkeley, Calif., alternative meat startup Prime Roots is serving up prepared meals featuring its plant-based products made from the Japanese superfood koji — a fermented mold — starting this week at select Whole Foods locations in the Bay Area.

Customers can munch on an assortment of its meatless products incorporated into prepared meals like rice bowls with chicken, kung-pao chicken, beef lemongrass and bacon or lobster mac-n-cheese.

With the Whole Foods partnership, the idea is to show potential customers how they can add the fungi-based meat into recipes at home. If they like how it tastes, they can purchase the product directly from the Prime Roots website, where they can get a prepared meal or an 8-ounce package of koji-based bacon for $9.99.

But bringing a product to supermarket shelves has remained elusive. To be fair, it continues to do so. But, according to a new feature in the Los Angeles Times, a Singaporean startup called Shiok Meats may be poised to be the first company in the world to actually sell a lab-grown meat.

The center of the plate in the United States has usually featured a hefty beef roast or grilled pork chops, or maybe seafood, or even hamburgers and hot dogs. The days of predictable meals of meat and two vegetables are changing, however, with plant-based entrées, vegetable dishes, value-added meats and exotic fare taking over center position.
