The patent filing describes a novel process for achieving a higher degree of fat differentiation and significantly lowering costs for cultivated fat production.
Ness Ziona, Israel, October 6, 2022 – Steakholder Foods Ltd. (Nasdaq: STKH) (formerly MeaTech 3D: $MITC), an international deep-tech cultured meat company, is pleased to announce that it has filed a provisional patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), regarding methods and systems for adipocytes differentiation.
The patent application details a new and improved process for differentiating stem cells into fat (increasing cultivated fat yields from stem cells), which is more easily reproducible and cost-effective than current methods. This patent filing is the latest step in Steakholder Foods’ push to reduce global dependence on animal-derived components.
To date, Steakholder Foods’ patent portfolio, fully owned by Steakholder Foods group companies, includes a granted patent and 15 patent applications.
Arik Kaufman, Steakholder Foods’ Chief Executive Officer & Founder: “The filing of this provisional patent application represents another step forward in Steakholder Foods’ ongoing mission to reduce the cost and complexity of cultured fat production and strengthens our fully-owned patent portfolio. We are excited by the potential to use healthier, plant-sourced cell-culturing inputs in our hybrid as well as bioprinted products.”
