In vitro cultured meat production

  title={In vitro cultured meat production},
  author={P. D. Edelman and Duncan McFarland and Vladimir A. Mironov and Jason Matheny}
In this paper we discuss the concept and applications of producing meat by culturing edible animal muscle in vitro. The in vitro production of processed meats is probably feasible with existing tissue engineering techniques and may offer health and environmental advantages over existing meat production systems. The production of highly-structured, unprocessed meats faces considerably greater technical challenges. In the short term, cultured meat production is likely to remain economically… 
In vitro meat production system: why and how?
The concept of In Vitro Meat production system is discussed, the underlying technology is articulate and the context of its implications are analyzed, as proposed by several scientists and stakeholders.
Novel aspects, environmental impacts and future prospects of cultured meat: A review
Cultured meat holds the promise to provide healthier, safer, and disease-free meat to consumers. It is tissue-engineering technique, with goal to produce meat without slaughtering of animals in
Tissue engineering approaches to develop cultured meat from cells: A mini review
This review focuses on the history and development of cultured meat production, with insights on the advantages, consequences, and potential of animal-free meat harvest.

Cultured meat - edible muscle tissue grown in a laboratory or factory (carnery) without the need of a whole animal - was shown to be feasible in 2000 [1] and several researchers have since suggested
Can Cultured Meat Be an Alternative to Farm Animal Production for a Sustainable and Healthier Lifestyle?
An interdisciplinary review of literature focusing on potential benefits and risks associated with cultured meat found several international databases and governmental projects were thoroughly analyzed using keywords and phrases with specialty terms.
Muscle tissue engineering in fibrous gelatin: implications for meat analogs
Histology, scanning electron microscopy, and mechanical testing demonstrated that cultured muscle lacked the mature contractile architecture observed in natural muscle but recapitulated some of the structural and mechanical features measured in meat products.
Technical Difficulties: Toward a Critical, Reflexive Stance on In Vitro Meat
This paper critically examines in vitro meat by the fundamental fact that it is a technological fix for problems associated with industrial meat production and a growing human population. Some issues
Benevolent technotopias and hitherto unimaginable meats: Tracing the promises of in vitro meat
Questions concerning how funding requirements shape representations of this new technology, together with in vitro meat’s particular socio-spatial and socio-ecological implications, become problematically de-emphasized.
Promotion of omega-3 chicken meat production: an Indian perspective
There are several problems associated with the commercial production of omega-3 chicken meat related to the choice of source of fatty acids in the feed, cost of production, consumer acceptability and stability of the chicken meat that need to be tackled.

Influence of growth factors on poultry myogenic satellite cells.
Progress in understanding of the early events in myogenesis has been made possible by the development of satellite cell cultures and media formulations that allow the assessment of the role of growth factors in skeletal muscle growth and development.
Differentiation of myoblasts is accelerated in culture in a magnetic field
A new cell stimulation method in which magnetic microparticles were introduced into the cytoplasm of cultured myoblasts and the cells were cultured in a magnetic field offers a new approach to elucidate the entire process of myoblast differentiation into myotubes.
Growing Semi-Living Sculptures: The Tissue Culture & Art Project
Tissue engineering promises to replace and repair body organs but has largely been overlooked for artistic purposes. In the last 6 years, the authors have grown tissue sculptures, semi-living
Mechanical stimulation improves tissue-engineered human skeletal muscle.
This system allows engineering of improved skeletal muscle analogs as well as a nondestructive method to determine passive force and viscoelastic properties of the resulting tissue.
Isolation of two populations of myoblasts from porcine skeletal muscle
The characteristics of porcine myoblasts indicate that the pig may be a suitable large animal model for myoblast‐mediated gene transfer and that pig muscle contains small self‐renewing myoblast similar to humans, that become larger when induced to proliferate.
