Researchers have many reasons for attempting to find the best artificial meat for human consumption: for example, the pollutant methane gas produced by cows; the fact that, according to United Nations estimates, a quarter of the earth is used for crops intended for animal nutrition; that these crops are also doused with a horde of chemical products to accelerate their growth (more pollutants)…
Unsurprisingly, this seems to have caused the urgent need to find a point of equilibrium; to create a sustainable situation that is environmentally acceptable, while meat consumption grows year by year.
Mosa Meat is the first company to manufacture cultured meat thanks to research that has meant a cost of 250,000 euros. The company says it can now grow cultured meat of almost any species, using stem cells that take approximately three months to reproduce themselves and become “meat”.
Uma Valeti, CEO of Memphis Meats, another company engaged in the meat race, believes that “in 20 years, most meat sold in stores will be cultured meat”.
It won’t be too long before we can find out if he’s right.
