Cultivated meat is real meat grown directly from animal cells," Uma Valeti, founder and CEO of Upside Foods, said via email
These products are not vegan, vegetarian or plant-based -- they are real meat, made without the animal
The process of making cultivated meat is similar to brewing beer, but instead of growing yeast or microbes, we grow animal cells
Scientists start by taking a small cell sample from livestock animals such as a cow or chicken, then identify cells that can multiply.
Progressing from lab production to making products in commercial facilities, some companies are moving away from the term "lab-grown meat,"
In addition to mitigating animal slaughter, cultivated meat could also help slow climate change driven by greenhouse gas emissions such as carbon dioxide and methane
