Novameat Introduces World’s First 3D Printed Steak

Novameat has created the world’s first 3D printed steak, and it just happens to be vegan. 

The printer uses a synthetic meat that can imitate the texture of beef and chicken, according to Giuseppe Scionti, the CEO and founder.

This plant-based print-out is hopefully going to “hit UK shelves before 2022,” says Scionti.

The steak is made from rice and pea protein, algae fibres and rapeseed fat. It is printed in layers to give it the muscle fibre texture. At $30 per kilo, the product costs around the same as a traditional beef steak but buying it from the store is not the CEO’s dream.

“Imagine a future where somebody can have this machine at home and create customised food in their kitchen,” Scionti told the World Economic Forum.

In the meantime, however, Novameat are focusing on developing a wider product range, including fish like salmon.

As both a sustainable and animal-friendly food production method, one thing to be sure of is the global and growing need for innovation like this.
