These Lab-Printed Steaks Grow in Just 3 Weeks and  Eliminate the Slaughter of Animals and Help the Earth

Scientists are cultivating lab-printed steaks in just three weeks by taking cells from a healthy, living cow and growing them into new tissue supported by an edible 3D scaffold. This forward-thinking field of cultivated meat could eliminate the need for slaughtering animals or harming the environment. It could also aid in the meat demand that’s expected to rise by 70%.

The innovators behind this development are Aleph Farms, a food company that was co-founded with the food-tech incubator, The Kitchen Hub, and Prof. Shulamit Levenberg of the Technicon Institute of Technology, Israel.



According to Aleph Farms, they mirror nature under controlled, safe, and clean conditions and therefore, nurture the cells in an optimal environment. With water and nutrients, the cells grow and form tissues in the process of tissue regeneration, constructing a steak the same as in nature. This food cultivation is GMO-free and doesn’t require the use of antibiotics.
