American startup Brown Foods has created artificial milk from cultured cells
TechCrunch Edition informsthat the startup Brown Foods introduced artificial milk made using cell culture technology. The founders of the startup claim that the resulting product is similar in properties and texture to cow’s milk.
The researchers tested artificial milk for key macronutrients: proteins, fats and carbohydrates. It turned out that the indicators are similar to the composition of cow’s milk. Also, artificial milk is similar in texture and taste, and you can make familiar dairy products from it – cheese, butter and other products. At the same time, the startup emphasizes that vegetable milk does not have such properties.
The main advantage of artificial milk is that during its production, emissions into the atmosphere are 90% lower than those of cow milk. This approach significantly reduces the impact on the environment and the impact on climate change.
So far, the startup has raised $2.36 million in investments. The founders of the startup plan to spend the funds to scale the technology. Experts note that all such startups are faced with the problems of scaling production and promoting the product.
At the end of May 2022, another artificial food company announced that it plans to build the world’s largest bioreactor for growing artificial meat.
