The cultured chicken could be a new cruelty-free option for meat-lovers.
Cultured meat produced in a lab in Singapore will be the first of its kind to be approved for sale.
US company Eat Just have produced lab-made “chicken bites”. The production process by-passes farms and slaughter houses to create a delicious alternative.
The Singapore lab uses cultivated chicken cells as well as plant based ingredients to create their “chicken bites”. On average 130 million chickens are slaughtered everyday across the world for their meat.
Synthetic meat would reduce animal cruelty and the climate impact meat production has on the environment. It would ensure drug-free and cruelty-free meat.
