American company receives official approval to sell “processed meat”

The American company Upside Foods, which specializes in producing meat without killing animals, has received the green light for its production methods from the US Food and Drug Administration.
“We launched Upside in a world full of skeptics, and today we are making a mark in history by being the first company to receive this letter from the FDA regarding laboratory-grown meat,” said Uma Valeti, the company’s general manager.

Noting that what was recorded represents “a major step toward a new era in meat production,” he added, “I’m excited about the idea that American consumers will soon be able to enjoy delicious meat eating food made directly from animal cells.”

The company still has a few hurdles to clear before it can start selling its products, including inspections by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The FDA said in a statement that it has “rigorously evaluated” the company’s data and information on its methods and “has no further questions about its food safety conclusions at this time.”

Several start-up companies are striving to produce and market so-called “laboratory” or synthetic meat that allows people to consume animal protein using methods that have less environmental impact than those caused by raising animals , and do not harm these organisms.

According to Sky News Arabia, these products differ in texture and taste from vegetarian meat alternatives such as “steak meat” made from soybeans and other meat-like ingredients, but contain no animal proteins.

Eat Just, a competitor of Upside Foods, is the first company to receive a license to market processed meat in Singapore in 2020.
