Lab Farm Foods recently unveiled new cell-based meat prototypes, showing the possibilities for the future of cell-culture technology. As COO Dave Schnettler describes, "While we believe cell-culture technology still has a ways to go before it produces a viable standalone product, we see the opportunity involving blended hybrid products as a way to make a more immediate impact on the global challenges we are trying to solve, while still offering consumers the same taste and nutrient profile they have grown to love."
Two new types of chicken nuggets were created by Lab Farm Foods with 50:50 ratios of cultured cells to plant-based proteins or conventional ground chicken. Alongside its hybrid nuggets, Lab Farm Foods also created a pork liver pâté recipe with 100% of the liver being cell-cultured pork liver.
