You can now feast your eyes on a festering chunk of solidified sewage as it ages, not-so-gracefully, inside a specially-designed isolation case that is being livestreamed from a museum in London. He’s the collection care manager of the Department of Conservation and Collection Care at the Museum of London. The main ingredient of the Whitechapel fatberg is palmitic acid, an unsaturated fat found in butter, palm oil, and olive oil, as well as meat, cheeses, and milk. “It still had the strong smell of fatberg,” Holbrook said, but with notes of coffee and beard oil.
