Didn’t see this one coming: workouts for cell-cultivated meat
Can cultivated meat be “exercised”? Deep-tech food company Steakholder Foods, formerly MeaTech 3D Ltd. thinks so.
The company received its first patent out of several that are currently pending in the cultured meat industry. The patent, granted by IP Australia, is based on the company’s development of systems and methods to apply external forces to muscle tissue that result in the development of high-quality complex structured meat, a company release says.
One of the biggest obstacles of producing structured meat, Steakholder Foods, formerly MeaTech, says, is figuring out how to enable the muscle tissue to mature with an enhanced fibrous texture that results in a mouthfeel with the right elasticity, density and taste.
