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™ 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-MuscleTM, Alt-FatTM, and Alt-BloodTM 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.
