Australian food company is making lab grown Kangaroo meat
George Peppou and Tim Noakesmith from VOW, a food company backed by science, have developed the world's first Kangaroo meat, cultivated not on a farm or in the wild, but in a laboratory in Western Sydney. VOW takes neutral stem cells, harvested from biopsy samples from a live animal about the size of an almond. The stem cells are immature and haven't yet decided what type of cell to become. The neutral stem cells are placed in a nutrient-rich solution and placed in a controlled cultivator, a warm environment which tricks the cells into thinking they're still in the body of the animal. More nutrients are then added which grows the neutral cells into muscle cells, fat cells and connective tissue that are mixed together to grow into final meat products.
