The "chicken pieces" produced without killing received the first sales approval from Singapore. This development is considered a major milestone in the meat industry, where 130 million chickens are slaughtered every day. According to the news in BBC Turkish, dozens of companies, cultures around the world are developing chicken and beef. The aim is to produce meat that is cleaner, drug-free and free from cruelty to animals, while reducing the impact of industrial animal husbandry on climate change and nature.
According to the news, currently 130 million chickens and 4 million chickens are slaughtered for meat every day. 60 percent of the mammals in the world are fattening animals, 36 percent are humans and only 4 percent are wild animals.
Eat Just's product is manufactured in a 1200-liter bioreactor and then combined with plant-based ingredients. The product is much more expensive than regular chicken and will only be sold at a restaurant in Singapore, but Eat Just notes that as production sizes grow, it will get cheaper.
CELL BANK USED
The cells that start the manufacturing process come from a cell bank and do not require cutting a chicken, because these cells can be taken from living animals by biopsies. All of the nutrient content given to growing cells is obtained from plants.
Cultured meat produced in Singapore also contains serum obtained from blood taken from fetus bovine in growth medium, but this is largely destroyed before consumption.
The company stated that the plant-based serum will be used in the next production line, and that it was not found in Singapore two years ago when the approval process started.
Current culture meat production brings with it relatively high levels of energy consumption and carbon emissions. However, manufacturers emphasize that as the size of the business grows, carbon emissions will be much lower and that much less water and soil will be used compared to normal meat.
