Israeli start-up will produce a “vegan steak”, indistinguishable from the real thing

The production of artificial meat is not yet put on stream, and such products are perceived rather as an exception to the rule. But all goes to that soon artificial meat will become quite a commonplace. We recently wrote to you that in the United States approved the use of artificial meat, and now it became known that one of the Israeli startups want to start production of artificial steaks by 2020. And they will be usable even for vegans, who are quite strict in their food preferences.

The startup is called Jet Eat and the representatives of the company say that the texture of their product repeats meat. This has helped them in a special way designed 3D printer.

“Natural meat is characterized by four components: myshechnoi tissue, a fatty layer inside it, myoglobin, and connective tissue. We have exactly reproduced this structure and with the help of a 3D printer has created a complex matrix based on plant components.” — said the head of the Jet, Eat Asher Ben Sheetrit.

Those who tried created in this way meat claim that “the experience of eating artificial meat” is little different from eating meat is natural. While the meat from Jet Eat does not contain any animal cell.

“Currently, three-dimensional printing is used in various fields from creating organs to dentistry. And I believe that in the modern world, it can be applied to food.”

Jet Eat develops its products in cooperation with the Israeli Institute of Technology and uses his lab for experiments. Now the company employs only 5 people, but it is already expanding its team at the expense of means of investors from Los Angeles who are interested in promoting the product to the market. Jet also Eat is a finalist in the food products under the auspices of the European Institute of Innovation and technology, the winner of which will be announced in Paris next week.
