The world’s first slaughter-free ribeye steak has been produced using 3D bioprinting and real cells from a cow.
Israeli company Aleph Farms has teamed up with the faculty of biomedical engineering at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology to cultivate a lab-grown ribeye intended to have the qualities, textures and taste of a real steak without killing an animal.
Aleph Farms has grown the ribeye using new 3D bioprinting technology and a culture of live animal tissue. The meat-making process prints living cells that are incubated to grow, differentiate and interact in order to produce the texture and qualities of a real steak.
The process is similar to the vascularization that occurs naturally in tissues. It allows for the passage of nutrients across thicker tissue, resulting in a steak with a similar structure of a traditional cut of meat before and during cooking, according to Aleph Farms.
