Lab-Grown Meat is coming soon

Real chicken grown in a lab may be arriving in our supermarkets soon…

The Food and Drug Administration has declared the production process to be safe. That’s a key step in the approval process.

“This is a watershed moment in the history of food,” said Uma Valeti, founder of Upside Foods. There’s a whole young industry out there developing meats that are cultivated from cells extracted from animals, usually via a biopsy. 

The technology is “self-renewing,” meaning the process does not require slaughtering animals.
