The ideal meat would have the exact balance of amino acids humans require,
yet have proteins that are relatively easy to digest, and the right balance
of secondary metabolizes and substances produced in cooking.  On Beta
Colony, they probably have a fully synthetic genome for the cells which
produce supermeat.

We do know that the Cetagandans serve different kinds of artificial meat,
probably cloned from different animal species, just because it's harder and
more exclusive.  They'd view the simple and delicious artificial genome
tissue as like potato chips - tasty but low-status.
