scientists presented the world’s first laboratory-reared pork, beef, served for volunteers in London in the hope that the beginning of a food revolution.
lang=”en”> 140 grams minced that cost more than 250,000 euros (more than 1 million PLN). To produce this meat was used and cultured muscle cells taken from a live cow.
lang=”en”> the addition of salt, egg and bread crumbs and to improve the taste of the red beetroot juice and saffron szczypki – researchers say that it will taste like the normal hamburger.
lang=”en”> Professor Mark Post of Maastricht University in the Netherlands, whose lab developed a technique of production of MSM says the burger is safe and has the potential to replace normal meat in the diet of millions of people.
lang=”en”> brought the meat to a press conference for the TV studio on a tray under a metal cover.
lang=”en”> Ground volunteers were given two of them, an American expert and author Josh Schonwaldowi dishes and Austrian researcher to eat Hanni Ruetzlerowi.
lang=”en”> After the first bite, he said: “I expected it to be softer texture … I know, there is no fat in it, so I do not know how juicy it be?”.
lang=”en”> “is comparable to the meat, but not so juicy. consistency is ideal, although the lack of salt and pepper!”
lang=”en”> Sergey Brin, one of the founders of Google, has been described as one of the financial supporters of this project.
lang=”en”> said in his video message .. “Sometimes, when new technology comes in, it has the capability to transform how we perceive our world. I like to look at the technological possibilities. As technology seems to be on the brink of profitability or if it succeeds, it can be very transforming for the world.”
lang=”en”> There are fears that the growing demand for meat is great pressure on our planet, both through the food we need animals and methane that they produce, contributing to global warming.
lang=”en”> “What we want to achieve is important because I hope it will beef herd in response to the major issues facing the world,” said Prof. post before Monday’s event.
lang=”en”> “Our burger is made of muscle cells taken from cows. does not change them in any way. For this to be successful it needs to look, smell, and I hope that it must taste like the real thing meat. “
lang=”en”> team in Maastricht has collected cells from organic cows and placed in a medium to create muscle tissue. Then it began to grow muscle fibers. For a burger need 20,000 such fibers.
lang=”en”> At this time, the meat is very expensive but the cost of beef farms will fall when you begin to increase production and meat can be available in supermarkets over the next 10 to 20 years.
lang=”en”> Proponents cite the meat of the tube are many reasons why you should support the project because the meat laboratory-developed theory carries no risk of the disease and do not need treatment with antibiotics.
lang=”en”> animal rights group, is funding research in the United States and offered $ US1 million (PLN 3.2 million) prize for the first laboratory to produce and bring to market in vitro meat chicken.
lang=”en”> Dr Neil Stephens, a sociologist at the University of Cardiff, who has studied the test-tube meat, said the project was an attempt to stimulate discussion on issues in which many in this area do not take it very seriously.
lang=”en”> “They want to prove to the world that in-vitro meat is real, it is something that should be taken seriously,” he said.
lang=”en”> “It is still very early stage of the technology,” said Dr. Stephens.
lang=”en”> “This is a fundamentally different way of producing meat,” and raises questions whether it is meat at all? “he said.
lang=”en”> “What will be interesting over the next weeks, observe the reaction of how many people will believe this new technology.”
lang=”en”> For many, this new concept will be a new and challenging.
lang=”en”> He said about 50 people were involved in this type of research around the world, mainly in the Netherlands and North America.
