The Food and Drug Administration (FDA). America gave him one today First approval for lab-grown meat. It did this by authorizing UPSIDE Foods, a firm that worked with chicken cells.
“We have completed our first pre-market consultation for human food made from cultured animal cells,” the agency said.
As he specified, he evaluated the information presented by the company as part of “did a consultation before commercializing their food made with cultured chicken cells.
According to the information, before the product can enter the market, the facilities where it is manufactured must comply with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and FDA regulations.
A USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) inspection and certification will also be required.
“Cell culture technology regulation is done in collaboration and close cooperation with USDA-FSIS for foods made from cells grown from livestock or poultry. Under a formal March 2019 agreement, the two agencies have agreed to a joint regulatory framework in which the FDA oversees cell harvesting, cell banking, and cell development and differentiation.
“The FDA’s approach to regulating products derived from cultured animal cells includes an exhaustive pre-market consultation process. While this is not considered an approval process, it ends when all relevant questions for consultation have been resolved.” Explained. “There will be a transition from FDA to USDA-FSIS inspection during the cell collection phase,” he added.
The technology typically uses cells from cattle or poultry to grow meat in an extensive process in the lab.
“Advances in cell culture technology are allowing food developers to use animal cells derived from livestock, poultry and shellfish in food production, and these products are expected to be ready for the US market in the near future,” he said. .
“The FDA’s goal has always been to support innovation in food technologies while keeping the safety of the food available to American consumers as our first priority. The FDA has regulations on a wide range of food production techniques, including the use of biological systems and biotechnology.” Has extensive experience in evaluating food safety. Detailed.
The agency said it plans to provide guidance to help companies that intend to produce human food from animal cells prepare for pre-market consultations.
