RE: Israel Opens Up First Lab-Grown Meat Restaurant

I would be overjoyed to eat meat produced in a bioreactor at least if the price were not prohibitive. Such meat would be cleaner, safer and ethically unproblematic.

To recreate the same experience as in eating real meat involves producing muscle tissue instead of just muscle cells. That's MUCH more complicated than reproducing cells. In real meat, there veins, membranes, fat etc. The tissue has a certain composition and texture.

Luckily, there is a synergy between medicine and the food industry in synthetic tissues. Both fields can benefit from the same basic research.

For now, that is a problem but one the price technology curve usually solves.

Yes that is why these "trials" where people can provide feedback. Creating the meat in a lab is actually fairly easy...creating meat that people will actually eat, that is a different story.
