Following the news of food tech startup Muzy raising 3 million for 3D-printed plant-based meat, we begin to think: Will we soon be able to eat these 3D-printed creations? What does 3D-printed meat taste like? How is it made?
Fancy a 3D-printed steak?
While it may not sound like the most appetizing food ever, 3D-printed meat, or cultured meat, is fast becoming a thing. Around the world, companies like Redefine Meat and Mitech are already printing meat, with startups like Muzi on their heels. But what is this “meat” actually made of, and how is it made?
- The bovine stem cell is the main ingredient – and while it may sound like an animal product, the final product is plant-based and completely vegetarian.
- These stem cells are isolated, multiplied until critical cellular mass is reached, and then bio-ink is made.
- These bio-inks are printed using a special 3D bioprinter, using a digital CAD model of a stack.
- Unlike some other plant-based products, cultured meat is usually sold as a complete cut.
- After printing, the stack is incubated, allowing stem cells to differentiate between fat and muscle cells, just like the tissue found in the actual stack.
- Steak, lamb, chicken – all of these meats and more can be 3D-printed using stem cells.
- Researchers at Osaka University in Japan have even recreated valuable Wagyu beef using two types of stem cells from Wagyu beef. The jury still tastes out, though.
Last year Novameat printed the world’s largest cell-based whole-cut meat analog.
Doesn’t sound particularly hungry, does it? The video below is probably not going to do anything to satisfy your appetite, though apparently, it tastes a lot like the real deal.

How big is the industry?
The sector has raised more than $ 600 million in funding since 2015, and is projected to exceed $ 10 billion by 2041.
- More than 50 companies are now printing meat, including Israel’s Metech (Redefine Meat), Barcelona’s Novamate, Vienna’s Revo Foods and Tel Aviv’s Supermeat.
- The world’s first Sanskrit meat company was MeaTech, the Israeli bioprinting company behind Redefine Meat.
- In January, Redefine Meet closed a $ 135 million investment round, bringing its total funding to $ 180 million.
- The company conducted taste tests in four cities worldwide last November for its cultured meat and its plant-based meat products.
- It already serves its products in over 200 Israeli restaurants, as well as catering to Facebook (Meta), Google, and Apple Office, as well as some UK, Germany, and Netherlands restaurants.
Can we eat 3D-printed meat soon?
We consume 346.14 million tons of meat annually worldwide, a number that could grow by 44% by 2030. Meat consumption varies worldwide, but the United States is the top meat consumer – we eat 124 kg per person per year. The general consensus among experts is that it is not sustainable due to the crisis of climate change and various other factors, which may mean that an alternative meat revolution is on the horizon.
We will soon be eating cultured meat in the United States, with experts predicting that 2022 could be the year that it gets regulatory approval in any form.
Can I print my own steak at home?
Not to be outdone, unless you are going to grow and nurture your own stem cells, which will require (a) some in-depth scientific knowledge and (b) a well-equipped laboratory. Unfortunately, 3D-printed meat is not something that you can print on your 3D printer at home the next time the greed of the steak shows up!

Tech tweets of the week
Larry Ellison and Elon Musk bud.
Larry bought Tesla $ 1B in December 2018 This part is now priced at 15B
He has just set aside another $ 1B as part of the $ 7B equity financing that Elon did to buy Twitter.
Something extra: This robot chef can taste the food and check if the taste balance is right, so Gordon Ramsay et al may leave the job soon.
