文字稿

Is this the future of food? Here in Silicon Valley, scientists have taken cells plucked from the feathers of a chicken and are using them to grow meat in this hi-tech laboratory. Which means the chicken I'm about to eat, is weirdly still alive!

这就是食品的未来吗?在硅谷,科学家们在高技术实验室里用从一只鸡的羽毛中提取的细胞培养鸡肉。也就是说我即将要吃的那只鸡,还神奇地活着!

Thomas Elliott Bowman, Chef
So there we have it. Our 'Just' chicken nuggets, with a little bit of a chipotle ranch dipping sauce there.

托马斯·艾略特·鲍曼 厨师
这就呈现出我们Just 公司的鸡块,还有一点墨西哥辣椒酱。

Reporter
I’m going to dip it in the sauce and take a bite… It’s really tasty. It tastes like chicken. Although the taste is very similar, the physicality, the feel of it in your mouth is slightly different.

我先把鸡肉在辣椒酱里沾一下,然后咬一口……味道不错吃起来像鸡肉。虽然味道很相似,但口感却略有不同。

This firm says its chicken will be on a restaurant menu by the end of this year. Probably somewhere in Asia.

Josh Tetrick, CEO Just
This is the transition away from raising and confining animals in the way we do. You know the reality is 99 percent of all the meat we eat comes from places that if we looked inside we wouldn’t be that proud of. Meat production is just as responsible for carbon emissions and climate change as all the cars we have on the streets today.

乔希·蒂特里克 Just公司首席执行官
“这是我们从饲养和限制动物活动方式上的一个转变。事实上,如果深究,我们应为现在所吃的99%的肉类的来源而感到惭愧。肉类生产对碳排放和气候变化的影响不亚于我们如今在街上看到的各种车辆。”

But will anyone actually want to eat it? We travelled to cattle country to ask diners in Ozark, Missouri…

Woman
I would prefer not to no, if I knew about it.

Man
Meat ought to be grown on the farm, out in the fields and stuff.

“肉应该是从农场、户外田园里生产出来的。”

Ranchers have concerns too. Missouri has already banned the use of the word 'meat' to label lab-grown products.

牧场主们也有顾虑。密苏里州已经禁止使用 “肉类” 这个词来标注实验室里生产的肉食。

Whatever it's called - with America's largest meat processor now investing in lab-grown meat, we may be about to see a new agricultural revolution.

不管它叫什么,现在美国最大的肉类加工企业已经对实验室培育的肉类给与了投资,我们可能即将会看到一场新的农业革命。
