Israel ready to mass-produce lab-grown meat

Biotech company Pluristem and food giant Tnuva reported this week that artificial meat experiments have been successfully completed. The researchers also managed to synthesize dairy products and fish. The companies began to cooperate several years ago, as they are confident in the prospects of this direction against the background of the escalating food crisis.

The project was named NewCo. To date, Tnuva has invested $7,5 million in it, with the option of doubling the amount within a year if needed.

Israel ready to mass-produce lab-grown meat

The texture and taste of meat will not differ from the usual version

The head of Pluristem calls the new product "cultivated meat". It differs from numerous analogues in that it is grown from natural cells, tissues and fat. This is not a replacement for meat, but its full-fledged alternative - a healthy and healthy product that will cost less than traditional livestock rearing.

Attention is focused on several aspects: taste, texture, sensory sensations when eaten. Against the backdrop of food shortages, this project could be the solution to the problem in the next 5-10 years. It is worth noting that in Israel, several companies are already developing synthetic meat.

Yaki Yanai, who runs Pluristem, is a vegetarian with 25 years of experience. In his opinion, the main issue that should be addressed is the distrust of most people in artificial products. Most often, they are sure that these are compounds that are unsafe for health.

Cultivated meat can also be consumed by vegetarians

Cultured meat will provide a choice for vegetarians, as many of them do not consume this product due to the suffering of animals. Artificial origin will solve the problem and everyone will be able to eat what they like without worrying about animals and the environment.

The latest research is being carried out. It is planned to provide the finished product to several independent laboratories from around the world to confirm the safety of cultivated meat and the absence of substances harmful to health and provoking the development of various diseases.

Upon receipt of a positive result, at least five factories will be built in Israel, the United States and other countries. Several environmental organizations have already expressed their support for this initiative.

    +1 meat inventors ready to give up real meat? What about real milk? From real nature? This is a serious question, I'm sure if the condition is their rejection of real meat for the rest of their lives, all their hypocritical justifications for putting this garbage on the market will immediately be disavowed. I would generally force those people, artists, advertising all sorts of garbage to use it. I remember K. Sobchak - SELA dresses us!

    And where will they get raw materials for the production of ersatz meat?
    Well, that's what I asked, just in case... It's not made of sand, is it?

    Colleagues, I fully support the Israeli developers. And the point is not at all in the culinary preferences of vegetarians and / or adherents of a healthy diet.
    It worries me very much that for "the sake of life on earth", humanity DAILY kills more than a million animals for meat. More than 300 pigs alone are slaughtered daily. And pigs are no more stupid than dogs. I emphasize that it is their humanity that kills in order to eat and no humane considerations are at work here. Personally, I'm scared that there are entire industries and tens of thousands of professionals whose raison d'être is to kill. Scary for humanity.
    And I really hope that the work of the Israelis will somehow reduce this problem.
