The world’s first test-tube burger has been revealed in London and tasted by two lucky volunteers who seemed to quite like it! Scientist-turned-chef Professor Mark Post produced the burger from 20,000 tiny strips of meat grown from cow stem cells. The lab-grown 5oz (142g) patty cost £250,000 to produce was fried in a little sunflower oil and butter by leading chef Richard McGeown.
Nutritional scientist Hanni Rutzler said the burger tasted “close to meat” but that it was “not that juicy”. Report by Ashley Fudge.
