Impossible Foods Tech Talk
A 100% plant-based burger that tastes, cooks, and bleeds like a real beef patty?! Sounds IMPOSSIBLE.
Yet, with science it's possible! Cal's very own Professor Michael Eisen, one of the head food science advisors at Impossible Foods, will be giving Food Science and Technology at Cal's first tech talk of the year! Join us as we discuss the sensory science and chemical engineering behind plant-based meat, and more!
**Impossible Foods swag will be handed out!**

ABOUT FST AT CAL:
Food Science and Tech at Cal aims to bring together students at UC Berkeley who share a passion for food science and related technologies. During the year we bring in guest speakers and go on factory tours to provide a real-world look into the food industry, conduct student-led research through the College of Chemistry, hold educational workshops to teach about food science concepts, and work together to develop innovative food ideas for competition. Our club is open to all UC Berkeley students of any major. For more information, visit our website: www.fst.berkeley.edu
