3d Printed Meat CEO Interview on Reddit
Andras Forgacs, CEO of Modern Meadows just finished a “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit with updates on their 3d printed meat research. We explored 3d printed meat back when Modern Meadows was just getting preliminary results, and they’ve now successfully created small pieces of 3d printed meat. When asked how the results taste, Forgacs wrote:
I cooked some pieces in olive oil and ate some with and without salt and pepper. Not bad. The taste is good but not yet fully like meat. We have yet to get the fat content right and other elements that influence taste.
The AMA is full of insight on the state of 3d printed meat, touching on potential costs – $30 to $100 a pound, how long it’ll be before it’s in supermarkets – around 10 years, and some of the gritty details on how they manufacture the meat.
