Incredible invention: 3D-printed meat

The importance of replacing meant on our plates is becoming more and more accepted. An important development, as the meat industry is currently environmentally unfriendly, requiring a lot of resources and emitting a lot of greenhouse gases. To reduce the negative environmental impact of the meat industry, many strategies have been proposed, such as - changing our diet, - reducing food waste, - improving technologies, and - developing innovative products such as 3D printed meat. 3D printing involves making three dimensional objects based on a digital file by putting layer over layer. The result is astonishing and not always distinguishable from real meat. In Singapore, you can already order it an a restaurant! Learn more how 3D printing meat works:

    I would like to test it...seems like a good idea. Though they should ensure safety of the food first and ensure carbon footprint is reduced.

              Currently, most 3D printed meat is made using plant-based proteins, although some companies are experimenting with animal cells. Plant-based proteins are generally considered safe for consumption, but there is still some debate about the safety of consuming animal cells that have been grown in a lab.
