Would you eat a steak that came from a 3D printer?
NovaMeat, a bioengineering startup that makes plant-based food, is now using 3D printers to make vegan steak.
NovaMeat founder and CEO Giuseppe Scionti tells New York media outlet WLNY that a 3D printer uses edible ink, made with ingredients such as rice, peas and seaweed, to print the steak.
Then it's cooked and served just like any other steak.
The steaks are not yet available to buy, but Scionti says his company will move forward with plans to create 3D-printed tuna steaks and chicken, in addition to the steaks.
