Subject:  edible blood?
Message:  Dear Rabbi,
Kashrut issue?

Scientists at the Voronezh State Technological Academy have
developed a method for processing blood and turning it into
food products such as milk, yogurt, chocolate, and coffee,
Interfax quotes the academy's administration as saying.

Voronezh scientists noticed that every meat packing plant
wastes about 7 tons of blood daily. So they worked on a
solution for utilizing it. They have already released test
foods that do not differ in taste from traditional foods
they imitate, the academy told Interfax.

The academy's administration also noted that the foods
created by Voronezh scientists contain unique blood proteins
that are metabolized by the human body twice as fast as
egg proteins, Interfax writes.

At the moment, the foods prepared according to the
academy's methods are in Moscow for testing and research.
Doesn`t that sound lovely?

Reply:  I can't wait to see that on an ingredients label
