What if you could eat feathers?
2.3 million tonnes of Chicken Feather are thrown away each year in the EU. What if this could be food?
Researcher and designer Sorawut has discovered a way of extracting protein from chicken feathers and turning it into an edible "meat-like" product.
This project went viral, with media posts from CNN, Reuters, Nas Daily and many more.
Kera is the continuation of this project where "feather meat" is finally brought to the public.
Kera has perfected its recipe and may be coming to a restaurant near you. Would you have feather meat on the menu?
Introducing Kera could potentially contribute to a sense of social belonging and cultural identity. Practicing edible feathers may pioneer a food culture that symbolises self-development, sacrifice, bravery, visionary, and showing empathetic responses to the world. It could be a new food culture that expresses its belief and what it stands for.

influence could manipulate
the level of neophobia.”
