US authorizes consumption of synthetic meat. Italian minister says never in Italy

For the first time, test tube 'meat' has been authorized for human consumption in the United States.

The Food and Drug Administration (Fda) announced the approval of a meat product made from animal cells proposed by Upside Foods, a company that produces synthetic 'chicken' by harvesting cells from live animals that are multiplied in a bioreactor. This was made known by Coldiretti and Filiera Italia, pointing out that the green light in the U.S. could pave the way for "synthetic foods" in the European Union, where the first marketing authorization applications involving Efsa and the EU Commission could be introduced as early as early 2023.

Clearing "the field from misunderstandings," Italian Minister of Agriculture, Food Sovereignty and Forestry Francesco Lollobrigida guarantees that "as long as we are in government on the tables of Italians will not arrive foods created in laboratories." "The government," he clarifies, "is against synthetic and artificial food and intends to oppose this type of production in every forum.

"I believe that synthetic food represents a dangerous means of destroying every link of food with agricultural production, with different territories, erasing every cultural distinction, often thousands of years old, in human nutrition and proposing a single homogenized diet, with very serious social repercussions on small farmers."
