For thousands of years, humans have had to kill animals to eat meat. This is no longer the case – at least in Singapore. Cultured meat is now legal in the city-state.
The Singapore Food Agency has approved chicken nuggets from a San Francisco-based company called Eat Just, which is known for its cultured meat. This is a world first, according to the agency.
Experts in food science, toxicology, nutrition, epidemiology and other fields in Singapore have deemed the product safe for human consumption.
So now laboratories are making meat. Indeed, synthetic agriculture appears to be the new frontier in food.
