Self-Growing Cow Cells Cut Cultured Meat Costs By Half

Researchers have engineered cow muscle cells capable of multiplying without expensive growth substances, potentially reducing [lab-grown meat costs significantly]( Andrew Stout's team at Tufts University aims to make lab-grown meat more sustainable and cost-effective by eliminating the need for costly culture mediums, which constitute about 90% of production costs. This innovation could make lab-grown meat, already sold in the US and the Netherlands, an even more viable alternative to traditional meat.
