In a world’s first, scientists claim to have created a new generation of genetically modified pigs which they say are greener and fit for human consumption.
According to its creators, the Enviropigs look, sound and taste like normal pigs, but are designed to be greener — each contains genes from mice and E.coli bacteria which have been inserted into their DNA.
Enviropigs have been designed to produce their own phytase, say the creators.
In tests, Enviropigs were able to absorb more phosphorous from feed. Their wastes had less of the potentially toxic substance and their meat also appears to be identical to cuts from traditional Yorkshire pig.
