What is Lab Grown Meat and Will it be Affordable?

Researchers at NUS has come up with a novel plant-based scaffold for developing animal tissues for lab cultured meat thus making it more affordable

Lab grown meat is produced by taking the skeletal muscle cells from animals and growing them on three-dimensional constructs call scaffold. The scaffolds provide the foundation for cells to multiply and develop into tissues. Researchers at National University of Singapore have come up with a new scaffold that uses common plant proteins. These are biodegradable and biocompatible with animals. Crucially, plant proteins also satisfy common requirements for food consumption, making the resulting sca...
