Meat grown in a lab is one of the latest technological developments that could be coming to you sooner than you think. Here’s everything you need to know about meat grown in a lab, below.
How far away is it?
Food tech is a rapidly growing industry, and there has been talk of food grown in labs for awhile, but it isn’t going to be mass scale in the next year or so. It’s still awhile away, and there’s still a ways to go on making lab grown meat mainstream. It’s reportedly not going to happen until about 2030.
Why would anyone want to grow meat in a lab?
The answer to this might surprise you, but lab grown meat is a huge way to save on energy while being more sustainable. The UN warns that raising cattle produces MORE greenhouses gasses than driving cars, which is shocking. Lab grown meat could help combat that, while also being a humane way to cultivate meat.
