The transformation begins now.
Cultivated meat, also known as lab-grown meat, has been cleared for sale in the United States.
Upside Foods and Good Meat, two companies that make what they call “cultivated chicken,” say they have gotten approval from the US Department of Agriculture to start producing their ‘cell-based proteins’.
The move follows a series of previous approvals which have paved the way for sales of cultivated meat in the country, with Good Meat stating that production is starting immediately.
The cultivated meat sector will now be overseen by both the USDA and the FDA.
Good Meat, which has been selling its products in Singapore, advertises its product as “meat without slaughter,” and “a more humane approach to eating meat”.
Supporters hope that cultured meat will help ‘fight climate change’ by reducing the need for traditional animal agriculture, which emits ‘muh catastrophic greenhouse gases’.
The regulatory hurdle cleared is called a “grant of inspection,” which is issued by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Applications for such a grant “are approved following a rigorous process, which includes assessing a firm’s food safety system,” an FSIS spokesperson said in a statement.
“This announcement that we’re now able to produce and sell cultivated meat in the United States is a major moment for our company, the industry and the food system,” said Josh Tetrick, CEO of Good Meat.
Proponents of lab-grown meat have called the approval “a giant step forward towards a more sustainable future,” adding that it will “fundamentally change how meat makes it to our table.”
If this industry is allowed to spread, it certainly will change things, without a doubt.
For unlike vegan and vegetarian ‘meats’, which aren’t really meats at all, cultivated meats are produced by using the cells of animals in a laboratory process.
Cultivated meats are taking the debate over the future of foods to ‘new horizons’, and in the future, could become a phenomenon that upheavals our meat industries.
Lab-grown meat is grown in a giant vat, much like what you’d find at a beer brewery, after cell lines are taken from the animal (chicken, cow, lamb, etc) and are used to ‘grow’ meat from this base.
But until recently, the biggest issue this industry had was scale.
Not anymore, however.
One company has presented a patent for genetically modified fruit flies — which have been engineered to make a key component for growing animal cells to rival industrial meat production.
This method is done by genetically modifying Drosophila at the embryo stage so that, when it reaches adulthood, it secretes the growth factor of interest from its cells.
The insect’s body effectively becomes a “standalone biofactory”.
By using the flies, companies can cuts costs by around 1000x compared to traditional methods of making growth factor, and there’s virtually no cost to feeding the flies.
They say we must make this shift to ‘save the planet’, but it ultimately may do the complete opposite.
Just last month, scientists at the Department of Food Science and Technology at the University of California concluded that lab-grown meat will likely be worse for the climate than real beef.
The detailed analysis was published in a new study published on the Cold Spring Harbour Laboratory bioRxiv website, where the researchers say the carbon footprint of lab-grown meat could be “orders of magnitude higher” once the industry grows.
Yet, it doesn’t matter to these mad scientists, who continue to push ahead with their utopian vision.
The end goal is complete and utter control of soon-to-be-rationed, synthetic food supplies.
Not just that, but it seems like anyone who does choose to continue to eat real meat will be in a bit of trouble if relying on big chains, specifically with the introduction of new mRNA vaccines for livestock.
Those who have genuine on-the-ground connections to farmers or individuals who practice a graze-to-plate philosophy may be alright through this shift, but it seems the rest of society will likely be subjected to this great transformation with little to no choice, as we power further towards Agenda 2030.
Taking control of your own food supply and breaking the reliance on massive corporations is one of the most vital things any free thinking individual can do to safeguard their future.
We are still in the early phases and there still is time to ensure you can easily navigate this storm.
Because it won’t be long now before our Australian authorities also approve the same products here.
