Stem Cells Are Key for Long-Term Space Travel

Posted by on Sep 23, 2019 2:39:00 PM

Aleph Farms, a pioneering lab-grown meat company, has sent stem cells to the International Space Station (ISS) and demonstrated that they can be differentiated into lab-grown meat in zero gravity conditions. The scientists at the ISS used a 3D bioprinting technique to culture and develop the stem cells into bovine muscle tissue, and the cells developed just like they have successfully done so on Earth. Astronauts are concerned with every gram of additional materials that they take on their voyages, and one of the main hurdles to long-term space exploration is the inability to pack enough resources to make longer trips.

Stem Cells on the Menu

Biotechnology company Memphis Meats has successfully grown chicken meat from stem cells in a lab, bypassing the cost and environmental toll of raising poultry. The stem cells were obtained from a live chicken and grown in the lab in a nutrient-rich medium until the cells formed into a piece of meat. The meat grown in the lab is virtually indistinguishable from meat obtained through traditional methods. Bypassing current livestock industry practices eliminates unnecessary harm to the animals,  avoids the need for antibiotics and growth hormones,and mitigates environmental degradation. Memphis Meats, having successfully created lab-grown beef and duck, have now expanded their culturing protocols to chicken, expanding their expertise in the field of stem cell culturing.

Stem Cells Get Closer to the Dinner Table

Posted by on May 19, 2018 11:00:00 AM

“Clean meat” company Future Meat Technologies anticipate they can bring the price of lab-grown, “meatless” meat down to approximately $8 per kg [$4 per pound]. The process involves obtaining mesenchymal stem cells from the animal and differentiating the stem cells into both muscle and fat tissues, which are indistinguishable from those found in standard meat. The meat cooks, tastes and smells exactly like anything you’d get from an animal- however, the biggest hurdle has been its high price. Future Meat Technologies looks to overcome this hurdle by bringing costs down, by differentiating stem cells more efficiently and scaling up production.

Investing in Stem Cells

Posted by on Aug 30, 2017 4:45:00 PM

Billionaires Bill Gates and Steve Branson have joined Cargill [one of the largest agricultural companies in the world] in investing in Memphis Meats, which has been working to bring accessible, ethical and cruelty free meat to the market. Memphis Meats has successfully grown beef, chicken and duck meat from the animals’ stem cells, providing the same taste and nutrition without any harm to animals. By programming the cells to become muscle tissue, the company has been able to create lab-grown meat with all the biological components of real meat. The cultured meat is said to look and taste exactly like the real deal, but could be even more salubrious for consumption, given that it bypasses the hormones and the unhealthy diets that livestock is often fed.

Stem Cells – Coming To A Restaurant Near You

As the world’s population grows and emerging economies continue to develop, our agricultural environment is changing. Meats are a valuable source of protein and nutritional requirements, but the current methods of producing meat are wildly inefficient—from both an economic and environmental standpoint. Several start-up companies are combatting this problem by using stem cells to produce meat products for human consumption.
