Scientists in London have unveiled the world’s first lab-grown beef burger.
The small 140g patty was fried in a little oil and butter and served it to volunteers.
The meatless burger cost more than $425,000 due to the complex technology that had to go into the design.
The “cultured beef” is made using strands of meat grown from muscle cells taken from a living cow, mixed with salt, egg powder and breadcrumbs and coloured with beetroot juice and saffron.
The thought is that this kind of product could replace beef in the diets of millions of people and in so doing reduce the huge environmental pressure caused by raising livestock.
