All this imitation food is a waste and marketing gimmick. It's like farming fish uses a lot more inputs than just fishing the ones feeding themselves anyway. These products are wasteful and ultimately don't do the environment any good anyway. It's pretty ridiculous, case in point:

The company's first products were launched in February and recreate the texture and flavor of tuna, the world's most popular fin fish, by blending six legumes with algae oil.

Just eat the beans and have the algae oil as a supplement, that's much more eco-friendly

No, it's exactly the same. The question is whether that new algae oils can be produced in quantity in substainable conditions.
