Meat grown in a laboratory could be on restaurant menus by the end of the year one manufacturer has claimed.
In vitro animal products – sometimes referred to as ‘clean meat’ are made from stem cells harvested via biopsy from living livestock which are then grown in a lab over a number of weeks.
Some environmentalists believe the process could be the key to reducing global warming with one study predicting it could lower harmful greenhouse emissions by 96 per cent.
And the first products could be available for human consumption within months according to Josh Tetrick – CEO of clean meat manufacturer JUST.Chicken nuggets – sausage and foie gras created using the technique could be served in restaurants in the US and Asia ‘before the end of 2018’ he told CNN.
