Cultivated muscle cells living on computers

Scaling up is one of the biggest challenges for the cultivated meat industry. Simon Kahan is developing a computer modelling project to simulate the proliferation of cells in bioreactors. This project will enable innovators to test their bioreactors Computer modelling offers solutions for cultivated meat industry Experiments on living organisms, as commonly seen in the field of medicine, are far from ideal. They are time- and resource-consuming; they create waste and pollution; and often, they cause distress...

Cultured fats for food

cultured fats
The Belgian startup company Peace of Meat produces cultured fats for a range of cultured and plant-based foodstuffs. With a B2B focus, the company aims to help other manufacturers improve the flavor and texture of cultured meat products such as hybrid chicken nuggets. Chief Product Officer Eva Sommer is hopeful that cultured animal fats can ultimately support the development of more complex structured meat cuts such as steaks. Eva Sommer, a biotechnologist with a background in food science, has eliminated animal...

The plant doctor’s view on cultivated meat

Population growth and rapid economic development are increasing the demand for meat, especially in low and middle-income countries. Annual meat production is projected to increase from 218 million tonnes in 1997-1999 to 376 million tonnes by 2030. The environmental impact of meat products such as pollution through fossil fuel usage, animal methane, effluent waste, and water and land consumption has also become alarming. How can we tackle food security with sustainable measures? Can cultivated meat provide an alternative...

Cultured meat: Implications for businesses

Many business sectors will be affected by the rise of cultured meat companies as they try to take over market share in the coming years. The extent to which the new players will impact these sectors depends on certain key variables, such as the cost and acceptance of the new technology. A new way of self-sufficiency A breakthrough of Cultured Meat (CM) on the food market, especially if accompanied by a widespread proliferation of private bioreactors, would be yet another instance of a trend that is making...
