“The project aims to create the world's first laboratory-produced chicken nuggets,” the company added.

The company said that 3D Bioprinting Solutions is developing additive bioprinting technology using chicken cells and plant material, allowing it to reproduce the taste and texture of chicken meat almost without involving animals in the process. KFC will provide the research lab all of the necessary ingredients, which includes breading and the spices, so that the nuggets achieve the signature KFC taste.

If you are wondering why this change, KFC has an answer for you. The company citing a study by the American Environmental Science and Technology Journal said that the “meat from cells has minimal negative impact on the environment, allowing energy consumption to be cut by more than half, greenhouse gas emissions to be reduced 25 fold and 100 times less land to be used than traditional farm-based meat production.”

Biomeat, on the other hand, has exactly the same microelements as the original product while excluding various additives that are used in animal husbandry, which in turn creates a cleaner final product. And in case you had any residual doubts, the bio-printed chicken nuggets will still be non-vegetarian.

As far as the availability is concerned, KFC says that its bio-printed chicken nuggets will be available for testing in select KFC outlets in Moscow in the fall of 2020.
