The First Burger Made in a Lab: Taste Tested, Short on Flavor
The ‘Frankenburger’ was tasted today (Aug. 5) in London. A team at Maastricht University in the Netherlands developed the burger and hopes that making meat in labs could eventually help feed the world and fight climate change.
How is it done? The lab made the meat from the muscle cells of two organic cows. The cells were then put into a nutrient solution to help them develop into muscle tissue. Then they were grown into small strands of meat. Hungry yet? Check out the taste test in the video below.
