Arthur C. Clarke had a couple of science-fiction stories on this topic. In one, people of the future were ashamed of their ancestors for being so barbaric as to take the lives of plants for their food. Civilised people ate food made from nice, clean chemicals.

The former is a synthetic replicant of meat, and the latter, a synthetic replicant of, well . . .
