This type of artificial Wagyu beef is also adjusted by scientists to adjust the fat and organic matter content in the beef to suit the requirements of the buyer.
Recently, scientists at Japan’s Osaka University announced that they had found a way to 3D print Wagyu beef in the lab – a huge step forward in creating man-made cultured cuts of meat. derived from the stem cells of a Wagyu bovine host. Bio 3D printing technology allows scientists to establish the marbled texture (also known as sashi) characteristic of Wagyu beef, which is also different from other types of beef in the luxury meat series. this.
To create the most realistic steak in every way, the scientists isolated beef cells, then arranged the stacking of muscles, blood vessels and fat. Finally, layer the cellular structures to resemble the real tissue of raw beef, then shape these tissues into the form of a delicious steak.
Wagyu beef is considered “extreme” in meats with a price of about 200 USD / pound (0.45359237 kg), an adult Waguy cow also costs more than 30,000 USD. In 2019, Japan’s Wagyu beef exports reached a record high of $268.8 million in profit, and this meat is usually only eaten by luxury restaurants or the “super-rich” people.
The fact that a Wagyu steak can be precisely 3D printed is considered a huge step forward in bringing cultured meat as close as possible to real meat. The fact that the origin of Japan’s artificial Wagyu beef is real meat also sets it apart from plant-based meats from companies Beyond Meat or Impossible Foods.
This is the first Wagyu beef to be 3D printed, but the pursuit of artificial meat has been pursued by many scientists and high-tech food companies. In February 2021, scientist Aleph Farms and the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Techion Israel Institute of Technology also used real cow cells and bioprinting technology to culture and shape ribeye steak.
