Synthetic meat or shmeat is a type of food in the Animal Warriors Universe. It is grown in vitro in labs across all regions. It is similar to synthetic mice.

All large pieces of synthetic meat have edible bar codes[1] that allows people the tell the difference between synthetic and real.[1]

In fanfiction

In Chapter 3 of Animalos, Phoebe and Ryder accidentally ate real meat when she realised there was no bar code.[1]
