New Plant-Based Ink Could Reduce Cost of 3D Printing Cultivated Meat
Scientists in China and Singapore have developed a plant-based ink that can be used when 3D printing cultivated meat.
3D printing is often used to create the scaffolds that cultivated meat cells grow on, which ensure that the resulting meat has the right texture and structure. To date, animal products such as gelatine and collagen have often been used to print scaffolds, or sometimes synthetic alternatives. But these materials are expensive, prompting scientists to search for a more affordable option.
