Startup serves up chicken produced from cells in lab
A startup has created the world’s first chicken strips grown from self-reproducing cells.
Some who sampled the strip—breaded, deep-fried and spongier than a whole chicken breast—said it nearly nailed the flavor of the traditional variety.
Scientists from those companies have already produced beef, grown from bovine cells and made into a burger and a meatball. Until now, chicken hasn’t been produced using the method.
But don’t expect to see high-tech chicken tenders hit your grocery store soon. The company estimates it costs under $9,000 to make one pound of the meat.
