KFC operates 3D printed chicken nuggets

KFC Series: Fast Food (KFC) said it produced the first batch of chicken manufactured in the laboratory, and is part of the "Future Restaurant" concept.

The American company announced in a statement that it will partner with the Russian company 3D Bioprinting Solutions to develop biometric printing technology that uses chicken cells and plant materials to "print" chicken.

KFC plans to provide organic printing companies with ingredients such as bread and spices "to achieve the unique taste of KFC" and will try to reproduce the taste of real chicken.

It should be noted that the animal material is used in the biochemical process described by KFC, so the chickens to be produced are not suitable for vegetarians. The company already offers vegetarian dishes in some restaurants. Last year, the company was the first fast-food chain in the United States to test a vegetarian chicken called Beyond Meat. The company plans to launch it in more restaurants this summer.

KFC believes that organically printed chicken pieces are more environmentally friendly than regular chicken. The company cited a study in the American Journal of Environmental Science and Technology that highlighted the benefits of meat farming from cells, including: Reducing greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional farming methods and reducing energy consumption.

(One of the founders of 3D Bioprinting Solutions) (Youssef Khaswani) said in a statement announcing the partnership with KFC: “3D printing technology, widely recognized in medicine, is becoming increasingly popular in the manufacture of products. Meat.” The rapid development of these technologies It will make it easier for us to print 3D meat products in the future, and we hope the technology developed through our cooperation with KFC will accelerate the development of cell-based meat products. "In the market."

KFC said: “The printed chicken nuggets will finally be tested in Moscow in the fall of 2020. His statement did not reveal the differences between the Russian testing process and other 3D printing tasks. But he stresses: "There are no other products on the market. This process can make it possible to produce such complex products from animal cells."
