KFC is working on what they are calling the chicken nugget “of the future.” KFC has partnered with a Russian research laboratory to create 3D-printed chicken nuggets made from chicken cells and plant material.
The laboratory-produced nuggets are meant to provide a more ethical and environmentally friendly alternative with the taste and texture of an actual chicken nugget.
And with the bioprinting method you can still incorporate all of the same micronutrients you get from eating chicken but without including a bunch of additives used in traditional farming and agriculture – so the nuggets are much healthier for you!
So are you sold? Are 3D-printed laboratory-produced chicken nuggets “the nuggets of the future?”
I’m scared. But optimistic. And hungry.
