The future of food may be underway in Singapore, where lab-grown meat products have been approved for the first time.

Also known as ‘cultured’ meat, it’s grown in a lab from animal cells, creating chicken nuggets or other products without actually raising or killing animals.

The lab-grown nuggets are being made by a San Francisco-based company called Just.  They’ll make their debut at a Singapore restaurant soon after getting government approval last week.

Would you be willing to try lab-grown meat?  Is it a more ethical option?  Have you ever tried going vegetarian?
