Companies Partner To Develop Alternative Food Sources From Stem Cells

July 27, 2010: 10:05 AM EST
Vitro Diagnostics, Inc. (dba Vitro Biopharma) says it has signed a contract with Mokshagundam Biotechnologies to develop a cell culture medium for nurturing food derived from stem cells. Mokshagundam, a private research company, is developing alternative meat sources. Vitro says the project will use “cultured marine invertebrates” to replace brine shrimp as food for fish initially and possibly domestic animals. The company says a successful project could lead to “commercial production of food sources that rely on cell culture technology” and perhaps creation of “animal and human food sources using stem cells that give rise to muscle cells,” the main component of meat. The companies say the resulting products would be free of contaminants and thus completely safe.
