    Is there such a thing as artificial or synthetic food?

    I'm talking about food that can be produced or made completely without the use of living organisms like plants, animals and even bacteria.

    Well, I was thinking soy protein for fake meat, also especially tofu.  But the secondary part of your question disqualifies my nominations.

    Margerine used to be made from coal tar, I don't what else was used in it though, and we have to remember, coal is a fossilised tree.  I think that probably there can be no such thing because bacteria are everywhere and have such an important place in human life.
