Are Redefine Meat™ products vegan?
Yes, all Redefine Meat™ products are 100% animal-free and do not use any ingredients from animals. Redefine Meat Ltd. believes that everyone can and should enjoy our alternative meat. Although our products appeal primarily to meat-eaters who are actively looking to reduce their meat intake, many vegans also enjoy our meat products.
What are Redefine Meat™ products made of?
Redefine Meat™ products are made from sustainable, highly nutritious, and commonly available ingredients such as plant-based proteins, fats, and natural colors and flavors. When combined together using our patented technology, they create a tasty alt-meat indistinguishable from animal meat.
What is 3D printed meat?
3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, refers to a vast array of different technologies that place successive drops of material on a surface to create a physical object from a digital blueprint. 3D printing is already used to create artificial limbs, airplane and auto parts, footwear, and more. Each printed layer is like a cross-section of the item and can be made from one or more materials. 3D printed meat is a food product made using a 3D printing process that uses proteins and other materials to produce meat. Redefine Meat Ltd. has developed a patented, industrial-size 3D printer that creates meat cuts such as beef, pork, and lamb, layer-by-layer, by printing three materials made from plant-based ingredients: Redefine Meat™ Alt-Muscle™, Alt-Fat™, and Alt-Blood™ formulations. When the 3D printing process is finished, Redefine Meat™ products look, taste, and feel like the muscle, fat, and blood of a typical cut of meat—without slaughtering cows or other animals.
Will Redefine Meat™ products eventually be available to consumers who want to print meat at home?
Why do you want to produce alternative meat?
We believe that alternative-meat production can provide lower-cost, animal-friendly, and more sustainable nutritional protein sources for humanity. Raising animals, particularly cows, is very inefficient and environmentally unsustainable for feeding the world's growing population. We recognize that many people love eating meat and will continue to eat it even if it's environmentally unsustainable. Redefine Meat Ltd. believes that animal meat consumption can be better reduced by providing people with excellent eating alternatives rather than educational efforts.
Why did you establish Redefine Meat Ltd.?
Redefine Meat Ltd. was founded out of a love of meat and a passion for our planet. We love the experience of cooking and eating meat but have compassion for animals and are concerned about the welfare of the earth and our children. We looked for a way to continue enjoying eating meat without harming animals or using highly polluting industrial livestock production. Leveraging Israel's innovation culture in digital printing, additive manufacturing, and food technology, Redefine Meat Ltd. is uniquely positioned to transform the conventional meat and food industries.

Why use 3D printing to make alternative meat?
3D printing is a proven technology for disrupting and revolutionizing manufacturing processes due to its precision, flexibility, and ability to eliminate supply chain inefficiencies. Until now, alternative meat has replicated ground beef or similar products that have a uniform consistency. 3D printing uniquely enables the production of exact geometries that can duplicate the muscle and fat structures found in cuts of meat intrinsic to the pleasurable sensations of meat-eating. 3D printing also offers the flexibility to print different shapes, sizes, or combinations of "fat" and "muscle" without retooling or resetting the machines. This flexibility is not possible with mold-based or other industrial production processes. Localized alt-meat production with 3D meat printers could also dramatically reduce the transportation costs associated with meat distribution. To learn more, see the article by Daniel Dikovsky, our Head of Technology and Innovation.
Are Redefine Meat™ products better for the environment than cattle beef?
Yes, they are dramatically better in all aspects: land use, water use, GHG output, and more. Raising animals to produce meat includes a huge waste factor attributed to the inefficiency of converting animal feed into food. Raising cows is the most inefficient of all animal meat production, with each kilogram of meat requiring more than 25 kilograms of feed and 20,000 liters of water. Producing alt-meat directly from plants is proven to be 95% more efficient.
Are Redefine Meat™ products healthy or healthier than meat?
Is Redefine Meat Ltd. hiring additional employees?
