Fresh from the BorgCo research kitchens comes an intriguing new product to affect your taste sensors.

To ensure the survival of many threatened species (including yours) living under the looming threat of climate change, we are now able to offer this unique new comestible.

To satisfy even the most hard-line eco-warrior, it's manufactured entirely from carbon-neutral renewable ingredients and is definitely Vegan. Even the packaging meets stringent specifications.

Unfortunately, to meet said requirements, the meal is not only indigestible, but contains almost no nutrition, being made almost entirely from chopped, shaped and flavoured cellulose from renewable sources (even the sauce); so consumers will slowly but inevitably starve to death.

But they'll feel so good while they're doing it ...

       Given the developed world's expanding waistline, I think it's high time someone developed zero-calorie food. It's therefore possible that you have, inadvertently, proposed something that would be widely beneficial.

       How is this different from 50% of the products for sale in most supermarkets?

       Much supermarket food provides what are known as "empty calories", whereas this product appears to provide "empty emptiness".

       It’s like a second cup of coffee, except without the first cup of coffee, so the second one is not provided.

       sounds more like spaghetti metamucil

       Oddly enough I have something similar left over in the kitchen from my Keto phase - Shirataki noodles. Just 4% of the stuff isn't water and thats mostly fibre (Konjac root, very similar to metamucil (Psyllium husk)).

       Does it come in 3 different colours?   

       Hey, if you added Biochar, it could be net-negative spaghetti.

       So that's what those little black flecks are ...

       To be fair, the staples on keto are eggs, bacon and avocados, but you have to drink beer where all the sugar is turned to alcohol such as a good czech pilsner.
