LAS VEGAS, U.S. -- Pork dan dan noodles and dumplings are not unusual fare at an Asian restaurant here, but seeing those dishes made without using pigs is startling.

The plant-based pork substitute serves as the latest creation by Silicon Valley-based company Impossible Foods. The company looks to offer the product outside the U.S. soon -- especially in China, which the CEO calls a "high priority" market and the epitome of fundamental problems in the human food system.
