Introduction (larsene)

The 5 august 2013, the first lab grown burger was eaten in london, it's a patty made from cells of a cow and turned into stripes of muscle that were combined to make a patty. This article describes the first burger grown from a lab with cells of a cow and eaten by food experts to make a judgement on the burger. The text is a press article from the BBC. We will we first see how and why it was made and the what the verdict was of the food experts.

First part : How to make a burger and the reasons why it was created (Faustin)

The burger was made from stem cells extracted from muscle tissue. In the laboratory, these were cultured with nutrients. Three weeks later, there were more than a million stem cells, which were put into smaller dishes where they coalesced (or fused) into small strips of muscle .These strips were collected into small pellets, which were frozen. When there were enough, they were defrosted and compacted into a patty just before being cooked.
But the meat remains white and scientists imitated the color of the blood by injecting hemoglobin in meat.
Why ? Scientists wanted to show that they were able to realize this miracle and show the environmental link between conventionally farmed beef and a lab grown burger. I think that lab grown burgers could be a means to solving future food needs in the world .

Second part : Experts' opinions (Nicolas)

There were lots of people's reactions following of the creation of the first lab-grown burger. Several experts said that the meat was less juicy and fat, but on the whole, food experts were satisfied with its taste and its consistency. An Austrian food researcher Ms Ruetzeler worked on the taste of the burger. She found that the taste and the consistency was perfect, however the texture was too tough and the meat wasn' juicy enough. The People of the Ethical Treament of Animal (Peta) thinks that this innovation will spell the end of mass farming. Consequently carbon emissions will be reduced, water will be less polluted and the food supply will be made safer.
Nevertheless, other people think taht it's a bad idea. In fact, if the burger doesn't look and taste like normal meat, it won't be a viable replacement. In addition, producing lab-grown meat seems more repulsive to consumers than producing normal meat. The head of the Food Policy Research Network, Tara Garnett said that the system needed changing, so not just more food but better food gets to the people who need it.
Eventually, I think that this innovation will help many people but our mode of consumption must change.

Conclusion (Quentin)

According to some specialists, this steak created in a laboratory will not arrive on the food market because firstly, it is very expensive ( about 215 000£/ 330 000$ ) and secondly is not really real meat. They just did it to show us that they're able to do it. In fact, because of all the fast food (in part) sold around the world, there are about 1.4 billion people in the world who are overweight and obese whereas a billion people have neither got food to eat nor water to drink.
