South China Morning Post (SCMP) revealed that a research partnership between two Chinese institutes led to the development of lab-grown pig meatballs with more protein and less fat than those prepared from normal meat. Much more sustainably, lab-grown meat is regarded a potential alternative to sourcing animal foods. Estimates indicate that culturing meat in the laboratory uses relatively little land and can significantly aid in reducing the greenhouse gas emissions associated with conventional animal husbandry. In December 2020, the Singapore Food Agency will allow the sale of the first cultured meat products, with similar approvals anticipated in other nations. To produce cultured meat, scientists must cultivate animal cells in vast quantities in the laboratory. More significantly,...
