History[ edit ] In the USA, the local food movement has been traced to the creation of the Agricultural Adjustment Act AAA ofwhich spawned today's controversial agricultural subsidies and price supports.
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Schulze plucks a petri dish from the incubator, positions it under the microscope, and then invites me to look into the twin eyepieces.
Those are muscle-forming cells," he says.
He removes that petri dish and inserts another. In it, scattered among the spaghetti strands, are shorter, fatter tubes, like gummy worms. Those, he explains, are mature muscle cells. Over the next few days, they'll join together in long chains, end to end, and become multicellular myotubes.
These chains will form swirls and whorls until they look like the sky in Van Gogh's Starry Night. Also, Schulze casually notes, "they'll start spontaneously contracting. So, yes," Schulze says. The idea of a dish full of duck mince suddenly beginning to twitch and squirm makes me shake my head.
What's making duck bits move if not a brain and nerves? Schulze is used to this reaction. We've had to decouple them. It's not a new notion.
In a essay predicting sundry future trends, Winston Churchill wrote, "We shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium.

Going in with Jurvetson was a lineup of household-name investors that includes Bill Gates, Richard Branson, and Jack Welch; their money will be used to build up Memphis Meats' already formidable trove of intellectual property and to fine-tune the process of combining cells to produce the tastiest steaks and patties, and drive down the cost.
The infusion of prestige also boosts competitors. Memphis Meats' lineup of backers "is enormous, especially for a small company like mine," says Mike Selden, CEO of lab-grown fish-filet startup Finless Foods. As emerging middle classes in places like China and India adopt Western-style diets, global consumption of animal protein skyrockets.
Memphis Meats is working on duck because it's so popular in China, which consumes more of it than the rest of the world combined. More than 25 percent of Earth's available landmass and fresh water is used for raising livestock.
