How do you feel about meat grown in a lab? With more people going vegan, vegetarian, or flexitarian, and others cutting back on meat consumption due to health reasons or concerns about the treatment of animals, there’s a new choice – meat grown in a lab. Researchers from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, say they’ve developed a new form of lab-grown meat that tastes better and has a better texture than other types of “alternative meat.” According to the researchers, the meat can even be “tuned” to have whatever fat content or marbling you like. "We are creating slabs of meat,” said researcher Ravi Selvaganapathy. "Consumers will be able to buy meat with whatever percentage of fat they like -- just like they do with milk." He says, “It felt and tasted just like meat.” (EurekAlert)
