http://www.euronews.net/ Dutch scientist Mark Post hopes that he will be able to produce the world's first test-tube burger later this year. He says it will look, and taste identical to a regular quarter-pounder.
In the laboratory, he has already grown small strips of beef from bovine stem cells, and is now looking at ways to increase production. It is white because there are no blood cells. But researchers hope that once cooked, these cells will look and taste the same as conventionally produced meat.
