The strips of meat contract like real muscles and are stretched on velcro to stay supple.
It’ the word’s burger made from artificial meat grown from stem cells in a lab. Mmm. Prof Mark Post will explain how he created the test-tube meat at his laboratory at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, before serving the res... Read Post
