Lab-grown meat is a product of this developing world. It may be a part of our life in future. Lab-grown meat is Actually an artificial type of meat that forms in the Laboratories. But you can't take it as artificial.
Yes, it is artificially developed in labs, but it is original and has all the properties of real meat that human eats in daily life. To know how it is possible, read this post carefully!
Human always tries to develop himself and surroundings and takes care about the Pros and cons of that new change that help us in developing. Now, a new topic is in trends that meat can be grown in the Laboratories. The scientist has researched and got to the conclusion that meat of any animal can be grown in laboratories.

What is lab-grown meat? Here’s all for you to know about it.

Is it is possible eating meat without killing animals in the future? If this method of eating meat will come in regularity then it can promote cruelty-free meat that human eat by killing animals. And will brings ethical meat eating practices which do not harm animals.

The concept of Lab-grown meat has taken its shape, in order to promote ethical consumption of meat, without promoting the cruelty of killing animals. Imagine chewing a piece of a juicy chicken patty that was really made without killing any animal. This may be the future of the meat industry.

As per to a report in the Scientific American, “Several start-ups are developing lab-grown beef, pork, poultry and seafood—among them Mosa Meat, Memphis Meats, SuperMeat and Finless Foods. And the field is attracting millions in funding. In 2017, for instance, Memphis Meats took in $17 million from sources that included Bill Gates and agricultural company Cargill”.

What is Lab-grown meat?

The Lab-grown meat is developed or grown in the laboratories with the help of cells (cultured cells). Means:
  1. First scientists take a muscle sample from the body of an animal as per the meat requirement.
  2. Then collecting cells (stem cells) from the tissue.
  3. Then multiplication of tissue dramatically.
It all bulks up and forms Lab-grown meat. According to the same report, “One tissue sample of a cow can yield enough muscle tissue to make 80,000 quarter-pounders”.

Advantages of Lab-grown meat | What Are They?

If this is adopted and supported by the human community, then humans have several advantages:
  1. cruelty-free meat eating system.
  2. ethical meat eating practices.
  3. No cause of harm to animals.
  4. reduce environmental costs of meat production.
  5. down the production costs.

Major Challenges for Lab-grown meat

As stated by a report in ThoughtCo, “When scientists created the first laboratory-grown meat, they started with muscle cells from a live pig. However, cell cultures and tissue cultures typically do not live and reproduce forever. To mass-produce laboratory-grown meat on an ongoing basis, scientists would need a constant supply of live pigs, cows, chickens and other animals from which to take cells.”

Other challenges:
  1. manufacture the same texture.
  2. taste like regular meat.

According to Science American’s report on lab-grown meat, “In 2013, when a burger made from lab-grown meat was presented to journalists, the patty cost more than $300,000 to produce and was overly dry (from too little fat). Expenses have since fallen.”

But, the scientists are trying to get success in getting that same taste and texture like real meat.
