Memphis Meats has changed its name to Upside Foods and the cultured meat company plans to bring chicken — its first consumer product — to the market this year.
Upside is a San Francisco Bay company founded in 2015. It’s local tie is Will Clem, owner of Baby Jack’s BBQ in Bartlett. He also cofounded Memphis Meats and was one of the company’s tissue engineers. The company chose the original “Memphis Meats” name “as a way to pay homage to Memphis’ barbecue culture,” according to a 2016 Memphis Flyer story by Bianca Phillips.
“We wanted to bring the strength of innovation from Silicon Valley and the meat-loving culture of Memphis together,” company cofounder and former cardiologist Uma Valeti said at the time.
Memphis Meats Becomes Upside Foods, Promises Lab-Grown Chicken This Year
So they grow cells into edible meat. I’m on the fence. I know how our chicken industry works and yeah it’s gross. I also LOVE chicken. I’m just wondering what is the nutritional value? Is it better?
From another article I read about lab grown meat, they are able to put certain nutrients in. Interesting. All of it is.
What do you think? Would you eat it?
In that article it also states that only one country allows the sale of lab grown meat. Singapore.
Sorry mods if I put this in wrong forum! Help if I did please !

Wouldn’t you FEEL better though if the chicken wasn’t harmed in the process?
i was raised on a chicken farm until i was 17. then came back when i was 23 for 5 more years.
we rasied them for eggs and when their laying slowed we'd sell them for meat. also sold chicken sh@@ for fertilizer, spring time people would line up for that sh@@.
i would imagine i've seen every way a chicken could die or be killed and smelled it it to.
Wouldn’t that be the icing on the cake!? Zombies!!? I do love a good zombie flick but would HATE to have to experience that in real life.

I will never eat lab grown meat, I believe that mixed with covid vaccine is how the zombie apocalypse will start
If this all goes super mainstream I will be starting a farm with my own food and will start hunting more regularly.
