meat may meet kosher and halal criteria if produced following religious
guidelines, potentially expanding its appeal to followers of Islam and Judaism.
Lab-grown meat may qualify as kosher and halal if produced in accordance with religious standards, two panels of experts from the industry suggest. This perspective could pave the way for observant followers of Islam and Judaism to consider these products.
Josh Tetrick, CEO of GOOD Meat, views this as a step toward integrating lab-grown meat into more diets. Presently, this meat is only available in limited quantities in the United States and Singapore. To expand production, companies in the sector are seeking more investments.
The production of this meat involves cultivating animal cells in steel containers using a nutrient mixture, bypassing conventional farming and slaughtering processes.
