Company Memphis Meats got chicken and ducks in vitro

We All have long been accustomed to the icons on the packaging of the products «GMO», «gluten free», «Organic product» and so on. It is possible that in the future meat products, in addition to the above labels, we can observe this: «in the manufacture of this meat no animals were harmed». And all thanks to the fact that researchers of the American company Memphis Meats recently able in the laboratory to chicken and duck. Thus, indeed, life is not broke up no bird.

Aside ethical or other beliefs, like cruelty to animals or the reception of only plant foods (against which we, incidentally, have nothing), livestock for food has an extremely negative impact on the environment. Animals whose numbers are very high, require care for their breeding needs a huge amount of feed that for cultivation requires large amounts of fertilizer, sakikawa the soil and polluting the groundwater. And that's not to mention the fact that livestock farms «produce» a lot of waste of livestock. In General, the creation of artificial meat — not such a crazy idea as it might seem at first glance.

Instead of sending the animals to slaughter, the new technology offers the use of muscle cells to «cultivation» meat in huge tanks. This process is somewhat akin to cloning, cell culture, but the representatives of Memphis Meats liken it to brewing beer. After isolation of the cell culture is placed in a special medium containing all the necessary nutrients. He «growth of meat» occurs in large vats where it is maintained at a certain pressure and temperature. The CEO says company Memphis Meats Mind Valeti

"We have provided meals, artificial chicken meat and duck. This is a historic moment. The chicken and the duck is eaten by people of many different cultures, but breeding birds creates huge problems for the environment, and it's inefficient. In addition, we were able to obtain prefabricated meatballs, highlighting the ingredients of the muscle cells of a cow. We want to produce delicious and affordable artificial meat."

It is Worth Recalling that , but then the public, the news was received pretty cool primarily because of the high cost of the final product, has exceeded $ 300,000 for one Burger. Since then, researchers have worked on improving and cheaper technology. If the company's plans Memphis Meats will be crowned with success, by 2021 they will be able to mass-manufacture «meat, in the preparation of which no animals were harmed».
