Cultured Chicken

 


Daily Dose: Cultured Chickens

Spore is well known for a lot of first. Yesterday, we became the first country in the world to approved cultured chicken for consumption.

Cultured chicken unlike regular chicken is just meat grown from cells. You would not get to get chicken feet or drumstick but you could make nuggets out of it. The question is .... would you eat it?
