Lab-Grown Bacon Slices

Higher Steaks is Creating Sustainable, Cultivated Meat

— July 28, 2020 — Lifestyle
Higher Steaks recently produced the first lab-grown bacon of its kind, introducing a cultivated and sustainable version of a popular meat product. The UK-based company recently announced the first prototype of lab-grown bacon, which is made with cultivated animal cells with plant-based meat—a split of about 70% cultivated meat and 30% plant-based meat—and looks just like 100% bacon.

Higher Steaks is also working on lab-grown pork belly, which is about 50-50 cultivated meat and plant-based meat. The slaughter-free meat products have the potential to offer a more ethical, low-impact way for flexitarians to enjoy their favorite breakfasts, lunchtime sandwiches and more.

The demand for sustainable alternatives is now even seeing some of the world's most well-known fast food chains preparing to introduce lab-grown meat products of their very own.
