Making lab grown meat starts by isolating animal cells to cultivate foods such as “alternative” chicken or beef. Lab grown meat requires taking cells out of their natural context and adding back in growth factors and amino acids as well as sugars. Making algae oil is a completely different process, with different inputs, more akin to growing plants in a highly controlled environment. We provide our microalgae with the same macro- and micronutrients all plants require for growth and rely on its natural processes to produce oil.
