European lab-grown beef for commercial markets

The European Union is to invest €2m into a scientific project that is developing cultured beef for commercial markets. The programme will fund research and development to find the best combination of amino acids, vitamins and minerals to include in the culture media to help promote the natural growth of muscle cells taken from a cow. Under a Covid recovery plan that was set up by the European Commission last year, known as React-EU, the funding has been granted to two Dutch food firms Nutreco and Mosa Meat which are attempting to lower the costs of growing meat in vitro. Can synthetic meat be compared with the natural meat ?
