- Would synthesized meat be Kosher? 4 answers
Does kashrut apply to the chemical composition of a food or only to its origin? Example: If you could manufacture a pork chop in the laboratory, and it had exactly the same chemical composition as a real pork chop, would it be kosher?
-One answer is yes: The Torah only says that pork as the flesh of pigs may not be eaten, but since pork manufactured chemically is not the flesh of pigs, it can be eaten.
-Another answer is no: The Torah may have prohibited pork for health reasons, in ways that we may not fully understand today, so you still may not eat anything that has the composition of pork, regardless of its source.
-What would be the halacha here?
