Italian bioengineer Giuseppe Scionti from Spanish startup Novameat has invented the “world’s first” 3D-printed meat-free steak made from vegetable proteins, which mimics the texture of beef.
By combining tissue engineering and bio-printing with modern cooking methods, he created a vegan product that boasts the same consistency, appearance and nutritional properties as animal meat products.
3D printing allowed the scientist to generate complex, micro-structured tridimensional forms that he says are impossible to achieve using other techniques.
