What is Cultured Beef

What is Cultured Beef?

Cultured Beef is created by painlessly harvesting muscle cells from a living cow. Scientists then feed and nurture the cells so they multiply to create muscle tissue, which is the main component of the meat we eat. It is biologically exactly the same as the meat tissue that comes from a cow.

How is it made?

Cultured Beef is created by painlessly harvesting muscle cells from a living cow. Scientists then feed and nurture the cells so they multiply to create muscle tissue, which is the main component of the meat we eat. It is biologically exactly the same as the meat tissue that comes from a cow. The cells grow into strands. 20,000 of these small strands of meat are then combined to create one normal sized hamburger.

 

MosaMeat aims to use and adapt tissue engineering for mass-produce affordable meat.

100% meat

Cultured meat is 100% natural meat, made from the same cells that build the meat we eat, only grown in a bio reactor instead of an animal. The final product will have a similar taste, texture and composition to traditional meat. This is a considerable – we think decisive – advantage compared to meat substitutes from vegetable or other origin. Those products often fail to perfectly reproduce the taste, texture or composition of meat.

When will Cultured Beef be available to buy? 

Of course, it is hard to predict this sort of thing, but we might see Cultured Beef, and other cultured meats, available commercially within 10 to 20 years.
