Aleph Farms has kicked off the first cell-grown minute steak, delivering the full experience of meat with the appearance, shape, and texture of beef cuts. They are promoting their product in a video.

The new product demonstrates its capabilities for growing different types of natural beef cells isolated from the cow into a structure similar to conventional meat. The breakthrough not only obtains the true texture and structure of beef muscle tissue steak, but also the flavor and shape, establishing a new benchmark in cell-cultured meat technology.

"We're shaping the future of the meat industry — literally," commented Didier Toubia, Co-Founder and CEO of Aleph Farms. "Making a patty or a sausage from cells cultured outside the animal is challenging enough, imagine how difficult it is to create a whole-muscle steak. At Aleph Farms, this is not science fiction. We've transformed the vision into reality by growing a steak under controlled conditions. The initial products are still relatively thin, but the technology we developed marks a true breakthrough and a great leap forward in producing a cell-grown steak."
