At that price especially with normal markups you won’t see it at your local Piggly Wiggly, 
and that’s especially high for plant protein. Roughly the price of an item tends to correlate
to the energy (and hence carbon footprint) to price.

This appears to be a dead end, similar to the kitchen chemistry version of fusion which does
work, but no one is basing plans for practical fusion on it..

Just raise ruminants on meadow cover which doesn’t add carbon to the biosphere, unlike
modern agriculture which depends on fertilizer made from natural gas which does.
