Outer space movies depicting crew cafeterias that produce meals at the push of a button might not be so off anymore. Israeli Redefine Meat has 3D meat printing technology known as Alt-Steak, a plant-based meat that emulates the real thing in just about every way, apart from its ability to clog your arteries. Using input from chefs, butchers, and food scientists, they’ve mapped 70 sensory parameters to replicate the texture, mouthfeel, fat, and juice that constitute layered Alt-Muscle, Alt-Fat, and Alt-Blood formulas and give ALt-Steak its beef-like experience. The fact that it can be mass-produced equates to widespread use in the near future. It will hit high-end restaurants soon, as well as market distribution in 2021. Call us when they can print up a nice, fat bone-in ribeye.
