The company analyzed its cultivated muscle
cells and demonstrated the same amino acid profile as found in
REHOVOT, Israel, Feb. 8, 2023
/PRNewswire/ -- Steakholder Foods Ltd. (NASDAQ: STKH), (formerly
MeaTech 3D: MITC), an international deep-tech food company at the
forefront of the cultivated meat industry, today announced that it
has analyzed its muscle cells and found that they offer the same
amino acid profile as that of the native tissue.
The amino acid profile has two important roles in Steakholder
Foods cultivated beef products – taste and nutritional value. The
biology team at Steakholder Foods analyzed its cultivated muscle,
testing 17 amino acids and comparing them to native tissue. The
results showed that the team was able to create the same amino acid
profile in the lab as in animals, another proof that cultivated
meat has the same biochemical composition as conventional meat,
with the potential to provide similar nutritional value.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, playing a
crucial role in human nutrition. Meat is a rich source of amino
acids, particularly those that are considered "essential" because
the human body cannot produce them on its own. These essential
amino acids include leucine, isoleucine, valine, lysine,
methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and histidine.
These amino acids are important for a variety of bodily functions,
including muscle growth and repair, immune function, and hormone
production. The specific amino acid profile of meat, as well as its
taste, varies depending on the animal species and how it is raised,
as well as the cut of meat.
