2019-03-12 Lab Made Meat? Consumers Are Skeptical

Plant-based meat products have soared in sales in recent years, most likely due to their benefits for vegetarians. But a new type of meat is being created. Lab-grown meat has not yet appeared on shelves, but it's bound to happen sometime soon. Companies are developing so-called cultured meat or "clean meat," an innovation that manufacturer hope will skip the step of using live animals in the meat making process. Instead, cultured meat uses the cellular building blocks of an animal's muscle tissue to create "real" meat. If successful, this invention could mean enjoying the delicious taste of meat without the use of animals, which has become increasingly problematic in the past few decades. This almost futuristic idea has left both meat lovers and non-meat lovers everywhere highly skeptical, but very curious. To see if people would really get behind this product, the journal Frontiers In Sustainable Food Systems conducted a study to answer the question. They asked people from China, India, and the United States, the most populous countries in the world, whether or not they would buy or at least try cultured meat. You may be surprised by the results. Get the full story here.
