Cultured meat

Cultured meat, also called synthetic meat, cell-cultured meat, clean meat, vat meat, lab-grown meat and in vitro meat, is meat grown in cell culture instead of inside animals. It is a form of cellular agriculture. Cultured meat is produced using many of the same tissue engineering techniques traditionally used in regenerative medicine. The first cultured beef burger patty, created by Dr. Mark Post at Maastricht University, was eaten at a demonstration for the press in London in August 2013. In part due to technical challenges associated with scaling and cost-reduction, cultured meat has not yet been commercialized. In addition, it has yet to be seen whether consumers will accept cultured meat as meat.
