Israel's Aleph Farms Makes Lab-Grown, Slaughter-Free Steak…In Space

Israel's Aleph Farms Makes Lab-Grown, Slaughter-Free Steak…In Space”

While the worlds of space travel and bioprinting have been intertwined for some time, they are both now colliding with the world of artificially grown meat.

"We are showing that we can produce food without the reliance on local land and water resources".

To conduct the experiment, Aleph Farms teamed up with Russian company 3D Bioprinting Solutions, which develops implementations of 3D bioprinting technologies, and two American companies, Meal Source Technologies and Finless Foods, to carry out the process on September 26. "This joint experiment marks a vital first step in opposition to reaching our imaginative and prescient to make definite food security for generations to achieve support, whereas preserving our pure resources".

Using a 3D bioprinter under zero-gravity conditions, scientists copied a natural process of muscle-tissue regeneration which occurs inside a cow's body.

Through an global collaboration between 3D Bioprinting Solutions (Russia); Meal Source Technologies (US); and Finless Foods (USA), Aleph Farms, a food company that grows cultivated beef steaks, hopes to make progress toward fulfilling its promise: to enable unconditional access to safe and nutritious meat anytime, anywhere, while using minimal resources.

But unlike the plant-based formulas pioneered by companies like Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, Aleph Farms specializes in "cell-grown" meat, which not only tastes like meat, but is also chemically identical to real flesh.

While people on Earth may be marching into a meatless future, astronauts exploring outer space still have to eat real animal protein, per NASA's nutrition recommendations.

According to the company, their reason for growing meat in one of the "most extreme environments imaginable" was to research various methods of feeding a rapidly-growing population with "sustainable food production methods that don't exacerbate land waste, water waste, and pollution".

Aleph Farms is one of several biotechs aiming to change the way we produce meat.

Lab-grown meat has been successfully cultured in space for the first time.

"We are proving that cultivated meat can be produced anytime, anywhere, in any condition, " Toubia said. For example, the cost of producing lab-grown meat needs to be low enough to compete with traditional producers. "On Earth or up above, we count on innovators like Aleph Farms to take the initiative to provide solutions to some of the world's most pressing problems, such as the climate crisis".
