Genetically modified barley plant seeds are being used in a process that creates laboratory-grown meat. The research is being carried out in Iceland with more than 100,000 plants.

A protein in the seeds, called a growth factor, is harvested, ground and purified before being used. Although the first growth factors came from animals, this method of barley planting is expected to be cheaper and more scalable and to rely less and less on live animals.
If scientists can produce on a large scale, laboratory-grown meat has advantages that could help feed a larger portion of the population.
“The population is increasing and we have to feed all the people. For that, we don’t have to kill all these animals, we just have to take their stem cells out of them”, comments Arna Runarsdottir, director of protein technology at ORF Genetics, in an interview with the British BBC network.
