A Burger With No Cows, The Rise Of Cellular Agriculture

The Learning with Lowel podcast interviews Isha Datar, CEO of New Harvest, and discusses the company's work in producing animal agricultural products without the animals. 

According to Datar, the creation of a marbled steak would likely be the most difficult due to it being a 3D and organized tissue. Currently, the companies that she co-founded, Perfect Day and Clara Foods, produce milk without cows and eggs without chickens. 

The discussion on lab-based agriculture to make traditionally animal-derived food products is of immense importance for the environmental future of the planet as well being able to give a wider variety of people a higher quality of food. Being able to find an alternative to animal agriculture not only will free up large tracts of land and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the form of bovine flatulence, but also a greater degree of control of what exactly goes into food.
