Lab-grown meat would not require the use of antibiotics on lifestock.
The possibility of food-borne illnesses declines, as the process does not involve animals or the outdoors.
A sterile environment may not necessarily be desirable since we benefit from healthy
. Hypothetically, however, greater consideration to certain bacteria can be taken in a laboratory environment to increase the healthiness of the grown meat.
Culturing the meat provides opportunities to controll its composition on cellular level, like optimising fat content or reducing purines (compound contributing to the
Using sterile environment for producing lab-grown meat may not be the healthiest option. Microorganisms that we consume along with naturally sourced meat may have beneficial effects. Unless these are somehow replicated, lab-grown meat would remain inferior.
When it will grow to a larger scale of production, it will be harder to ensure it is made in a sterile environment and with only healthy ingredients.
