In-vitro meat (in vitro = in glass)

Research into test tube meat production is taking place in several places. We don´t have to go through animal production to produce meat? Commercial production are several years away, but seems to be nearing a practical reality.

At the Norwegian University for Environment and Bioscience at Ås a research organization for in vitro meat is being built. The job is to grow meat from animal cells. Researchers in the Netherlands, Singapore, USA are also engaged.

We will not stop eating meat so we have to find sustainable ways of producing it. In vitro production will be environmentally sound, improve animal welfare and make large scale production possible.

The research is connected to stem cell technology and tissue engineering. Taste as well as texture can be enhanced! The aim is to produce a low price supplement to animal meat.

Financing is now needed to speed things up!
