Here is some tasty news on the development of more sustainable ‘meat.’
‘Chicken Bites’ produced by Eat Just, a U.S start-up, offer a no-kill alternative for carnivores wanting to reduce their environmental impact.
While not yet approved in the U.S. the ‘chicken bites’ passed muster with the Singapore Food Agency which is a landmark achievement globally.
“Dozens of firms are developing cultivated chicken, beef and pork, with a view to slashing the impact of industrial livestock production on the climate and nature crises, as well as providing cleaner, drug-free and cruelty-free meat. Currently, about 130 million chickens are slaughtered every day for meat, and 4 million pigs. By weight, 60% of the mammals on earth are livestock, 36% are humans and only 4% are wild.
The cells for Eat Just’s product are grown in a 1,200-litre bioreactor and then combined with plant-based ingredients. Initial availability would be limited, the company said, and the bites would be sold in a restaurant in Singapore. The product would be significantly more expensive than conventional chicken until production was scaled up, but Eat Just said it would ultimately be cheaper.”
