Steakholder Foods, an Israeli food company is all set to change your eating habits, The company has for the first time produces “Omakase Beef Morsels” — inspired by the marbling quality of Wagyu beef — with 3D printing technology.
The research team created tissue made from many layers of bovine stem cells. The first layer is printed with bio- inks, muscle cells, and the second layer of fat cells is printed with another bio-ink.
With their latest food printer, Steakholder is able to print the layers of a burger in different sequences. This changes the juiciness and marbling of the food, which enhances its taste.
Arik Kaufman, Steakholder Foods’ Chief Executive Officer said, “This product marks a major breakthrough for us and for the cultured meat sector in general. It is the result of a lot of hard work and our desire to attain the highest standard of meat possible through bioprinting and cell cultivation processes.”
Omakase Beef Morsels is at the intersection of food, technology and art. They want to enable chefs around the world by creating mouthwatering dishes that differentiate their go-to steaks from any other.

Steakholder Foods uses technology that can print meat products with any shape, width, and marbling ratio. They can sometimes produce meat that has the same precision as Wagyu beef.
The company is taking steps to reinvent the way we eat. To do this, they have partnered with 3D printing engineers and biologists to create meat.
Steakholder Foods is contributing to UN Sustainable Development Goals by using slaughter-free farming models.
