Singapore Turns To Cultured Meat To Boost Its Food Security

Singapore recently became the first country in the world to allow cultured meat to be sold to the public, a move that scientists and environmentalists say is the future of meat production. U.S.-based company Eat Just takes stem cells from live tissue, mixes it with a broth, and puts it into a bioreactor to allow the cells to multiply and form connective tissue. While cultured meat can be expensive to produce, they sold its chicken — a maple waffle chicken dish and crispy chicken bao — to diners for $17.
