A team of scientists led by Uma Valeti, a cardiologist and CEO of Memphis Meats, laboratory-grown meat developed from animal cells that can be "harvested" in a period between 9 and 21 days.
Valeti says that for the development of this type of meat they take identified cells from a certain animal that are capable of regenerating themselves.
"Then these cells are provided with oxygen and nutrients such as sugars and minerals," says the cardiologist, emphasizing that the meat they develop is "identical at the molecular and cellular level" as the real one.
This novel cultured meat has no health side effects such as bacterial contamination or highly saturated fats, Valeti reveals, adding that its popularization could help stop the massive slaughter of animals around the world.
