Pairing cellular agriculture with genetic engineering could enable the development of novel foods, with non-native features, that may be nutritionally enhanced. In a study recently published in Metabolic Engineering, researchers from Tufts University engineered bovine cells to endogenously produce phytoene, lycopene and β-carotene, and found a reduction in lipid oxidation levels when this cultured meat was cooked.
