A novel approach for in vitro meat production
The present review describes the possibility of in vitro meat production with the help of advanced co-culturing methods and believes that a billion pounds of in vivo meat could be produced from one animal for consumption, however, a great deal of research is required.
In vitro meat: A future animal-free harvest
Theoretically, this system is believed to be efficient enough to supply the global demand for meat; however, establishment of a sustainable in vitro meat production would face considerably greater technical challenges and a great deal of research is still needed to establish this animal-free meat culturing system on an industrial scale.
Technological, Regulatory, and Ethical Aspects of In Vitro Meat: A Future Slaughter-Free Harvest.
The problems and possibilities of developing cultured meat, opportunities, ethical issues as well as emerging safety and regulatory issues in this area are considered.
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.
In-vitro meat: a promising solution for sustainability of meat sector
The new challenges of increasing demand of meat with the increasing population could be fulfill by the establishment of in-vitro meat production at large scale and its popularization and will lead to self-sufficiency in the developed world.
Stem cells-derived in vitro meat: from petri dish to dinner plate
The necessity and potential of stem cell-derived in vitro meat as an alternative source of animal protein vis-a-vis the constraints of conventional approaches of meat production are highlighted.
Current Issues and Technical Advances in Cultured Meat Production: A Review
The social and economic aspects of cultured meat production as well as the recent technical advances in cultured meat technology are discussed.
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.


Technology options for new nutritional concepts
During the last decade, research into the relationship between food and health has opened new opportunities for the development of health-promoting foods, i.e. functional foods. As a result, new
Tissue engineered meat for consumption and a method for producing tissue engineered meat for consumption
A non-human tissue engineered meat product and a method for producing such meat product are disclosed. The meat product comprises muscle cells that are grown ex vivo and is used for food consumption.

The potential of serum-free media free of any animal-derived component in supporting cell growth and production of biologicals will be presented and the risk of using non-animal-derived substances in serum- free media for animal cell technology will be discussed with respect to classically used cell culture media.
Why do we still use serum in the production of biopharmaceuticals?

Fetal bovine serum is the most frequently used serum and is capable of supporting the growth of a wide variety of eukaryotic cells, but the use of these serum-free media is limited to a very narrow range of cells.
