Most of the current claims on “meat” produced from in vitro-cultured muscle cells, known as “cultured meat” or “artificial meat”, are largely driven by proponents of this new technology or by private companies working in this area. On the other hand, opinions by (conventional) meat producers or animal scientists may be perceived in favor of the conventional meat industry. However, we need a rational scientific debate with a balanced critique of potential benefits of “cultured meat” as an alternative to conventional meat production considering the characteristics of the current livestock farming systems. This Special Issue aims to provide balanced opinions in this area by inviting experts in both “cultured meat” production and/or “animal science” to this Special Issue. Experts are invited to present and discuss any research related to this topic and this includes among others, environmental, technological, nutritional, sensory and safety issues. Interdisciplinary and primary research describing the most recent results are more than welcomed since the scientific literature, despite a great number of review papers in this area is modest, whereas press articles in the public media promoting “cultured meat” are, on the contrary, very numerous.
