What is precision fermentation?

Precision fermentation, also known as synthetic biology fermentation or cellular agriculture, is a method of producing animal products such as meat, dairy, and eggs through the fermentation of cells, rather than raising and slaughtering livestock. It involves using genetically modified microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast, or fungi to produce the desired animal products in a controlled environment. The process involves designing and engineering microorganisms to produce specific proteins that mimic the taste and texture of animal products, which are then harvested and processed into food products. Precision fermentation has the potential to revolutionize the food industry by offering a sustainable and ethical alternative to traditional animal agriculture.
