Printer Produces Plant-Based Substitute
Researcher Giuseppe Scionti, owner of Nova Meat, in Barcelona, Spain, has developed a synthetic meat substitute using vegetable proteins that imitate protein complexes found in real meat. Produced using a 3-D printer, it can mimic the texture of beef or chicken. The specialist in biomedicine and tissue engineering has been working for 10 years on bioprinting different synthetic tissues such as artificial corneas, skin and ears.
