Milk without the cow, cultured meat, silk soap, lab-grown shoes, and more: The Digest’s Top 8 Innovations for the week of December 18th

December 17, 2020 |

“Think of the children” who won’t know that meat comes from life, not from labs, says the France ag minister who poo-poo’d cultivated meat, yet Israel’s prime minister championed cultivated meat calling it a “powerhouse” and a way to save the cows. While that debate goes on, milk rethinker Remilk raised $11.3 million for their dairy products using microbial fermentation without cows.

In today’s Digest, we also have pure silk acting as a co-surfactant that could be used in soap formulations, lab-grown shoes composed of nanofibers of cellulose assembled by bacteria, and other innovations pushing the edge.
