IntegriCulture Inc., a cellular agriculture company, has demonstrated an “edible” cultivated foie gras.
Most past demonstrations of cultivated meats to date involved the use of materials with little or no records of consumption and many have faced regulatory issues. IntegriCulture Inc. has developed a medium formulated entirely from food grade materials with a solid history of consumption, and used this medium to demonstrate an “edible” cultivated foie gras.
We have received a comment from Chef Kuwana, a future-food gastronomist, upon preparing a dish with this foie gras.
“The sweetness and richness are in good balance. It is very good. I did not feel so much oil, but flavor spread in my mouth even with a small amount. It was a pure and mellow foie gras with a sweet and gentle spread. Although delicate, it had a strong presence and I was impressed. I recommend you feeling the flavor with just a pinch of salt and without any sauce.”
IntegriCulture Inc. plans to launch cultivated foie gras in restaurants in 2021 and in retails stores in 2023.
