Aleph Farms beefs up clean meat
Cutting-edge Israeli food-tech startup develops a novel 3D technology to bring clean meat products to a whole new level

Aleph Farms Ltd., one of only a handful of clean meat companies globally, has announced two significant advances in the production of clean meat: expanding the composition of the meat itself and growing it in a more structured way.

Until now, clean meat – animal meat has been grown in a clean setting rather than in an animal. This restricts it to simple structures of one or two types of cell tissue, limiting its applications to ground meat.

“It has been a major hurdle to mimic meat’s many properties, such as texture, shape, juiciness, and flavor,” states Prof. Shulamit Levenberg, co-founder and chief scientific officer of Aleph Farms. “Our use of the four cell types found in conventional cuts of meat, including vascular and connective tissues, is the key to a product that will be closer to the beef that people crave.”

Aleph Farms’ 3D technology relies on creating a complex tissue composed of the four core meat cell types. They are then able to grow these cells on an intricate proprietary three-dimensional platform. Aleph’s clean meat mimics traditional cuts of beef in both structure and texture, but without beef’s huge environmental impact, its heavy resource requirements, or its contribution to climate change.

The world-class scientific team behind these innovations is headed by Professor Levenberg, Dean of the Bio-Medical Engineering Faculty at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, a top science and technology research institution.
