AN INTRODUCTION TO ALTERNATIVE PROTEIN & CULTIVATED MEAT TECHNOLOGIES & FOOD PRODUCTS

About the Course

This is a one-day introductory workshop on Alternative Protein and Cultivated Meat Technologies and Food Products. There is currently intense interest in alternative protein food products and cultivated meat products and technologies. Alternative protein, derived from plants, insects, fungi or cell cultures, may offer a more reliable and sustainable source of protein compared to conventional animal-based meat products. Over the past two years, more than 15 alternative protein start-ups have set up base in Singapore. Singapore also became the first country to approve the sale of a cell-cultured meat product in December 2020. The cultured chicken bites by Californian firm Eat Just are available for home delivery via Foodpanda in Singapore. This 1-day short course aims to provide a primer on alternative protein and cultivated meat technologies and safety concerns. A tasting session for participants may be arranged with a plant-derived alternative protein or a cell-cultured meat food product.
