“Clean meat” is getting closer to consumers’ tables. Several clean meat companies are perfecting their culturing and differentiation protocols to obtain chicken meat from the stem cells of a live chicken in just two weeks. This is significantly shorter than the time required to grow a chicken in typical livestock farming. Additionally, the process doesn’t involve slaughtering animals, thereby eliminating ethical concerns many people have regarding eating meat. By eliminating the need to grow livestock on large-scale farms, clean meat companies will significantly mitigate the environmental impact of the livestock industry and alleviate food shortages.
The success of clean meat companies will also further other stem cell uses, since stem cell differentiation poses a challenge for the development of stem cell treatments. The stem cell differentiation protocols being developed by these companies may be applied to the differentiation of stem cells into other organs and tissues.
