According to the Russian Satellite News Agency, Japanese researchers used stem cells derived from cattle to 3D print Wagyu beef with a marbled effect. The scientist’s research report was published in the journal Nature Communications. Wagyu beef is considered the most expensive beef in the world. It contains a lot of intramuscular fat, which gives beef a unique taste and marbling.

Researchers at Osaka University used 3D Printing technology to reproduce the texture as accurately as possible. Jiang Dongxi, one of the authors of the study, said: “Using the tissue structure of beef as a model, we have developed a 3D printing method that allows us to reproduce complex structures such as muscle fibers, fat, and blood vessels.” According to the researchers, This technology will allow consumers to order meat products according to their tastes and dietary preferences.
