This may or may not be an appropriate place to post this, but I can’t think of anywhere better.
I want to start my own kickstarter to breed a plant that is nutritionally complete. Each time I have the nutritional contents tested it costs me ~$700. I think it will take me at least 10 tests before I have something worthwhile. I also need to buy heat lamps, seeds, plants, soil and fertilizer.
I just want some general creative advice, like
What should the title be?
What should the rewards be?
I’m really inspired to do this but the costs are tremendous, though not nearly as much so as producing Soylent.
I believe this is a better solution on the task of ending world hunger, and is more cost-effective. Soylent has gone after a different market and I’d like to offer a solution that fills some of their original intentions, I believe this is it.
Any help/criticism is appreciated.
In light of my 3 ingredient recipe, I’ve decided to use carrots as the base plant. The only problem with carrots is the low fat content and the high b-carotene content. I’ll start with white carrots to eliminate the b-carotene problem, then try to breed carrots with a high fat content. At this point they will be nutritionally complete, minus B12 and vitamin D.
From here I’ll either try to inoculate them with a bacteria that produces B12 or present my work to a company large enough to genetically modify the carrot to produce B12 itself.
