Another novelty in the food market is lab-grown meat. It is an alternative concept of sustainable meat production, without sacrificing animal lives and without using many antibiotics administered to animals.

3D printing has been one of the fastest growing technologies for several years, with practical applications in almost every market. One of the latest to benefit from 3D printing is the food industry, causing a revolution in food and nutrition technology. This has provided a platform to create unique food products that can have more nutritional value, for example.

“By “printing” meat, a manufacturer can control and regulate the protein, fat and many other nutrients. For this, a special technique has been developed to provide meat with a realistic texture. The benefits of combining the two technologies mentioned above are enormous.

One start-up, Aleph Farms Ltd, working on growing meat in the lab, has even managed to print meat on the International Space Station. As reported by Bloomberg, the Israeli company, by using a special method, managed to recreate the process of formation of muscle fibers and fat. In this way, a quite realistic steak was printed, bypassing all the procedures used in slaughterhouses. Company representatives assure that a delicious, tender and juicy ribeye steak was created.
