Scientists grow 'meaty' rice hybrid food for protein kick

  • Scientists have developed cell-cultured beef rice by adding cow muscle and fat cells to rice grains coated in fish gelatine and culturing them for 9 to 11 days. The hybrid rice contains 8% more protein and 7% more fat than regular rice.
  • The cell-cultured beef rice has a smaller carbon footprint, producing less than 6.27 kg of CO2 per 100 g of protein compared to beef's 49.89 kg. It is also estimated to cost $2.23 per kilogram, while beef costs $14.88.
  • The researchers believe the nutrient-dense rice could provide relief for famine, military ration, or space food, but it remains to be seen if consumers would accept it.
