Key Takeaway: Soy-based polymer resins can withstand the heat of cultured meat production, cooking, and consumption without becoming mechanically or physically compromised.
Michael Sealy et al. certify that soy-based polymer resins can withstand the cultured meat production process if used as scaffolds. They construct the potential scaffolds via vat polymerization, which allows for detailed 3D scaffold construction by curing the polymer in layers. Curing time is varied to produce three distinct samples, which are then analyzed for thermomechanical and thermochemical properties. Sealy et al. find the soy-based scaffold does not lose its mechanical or chemical properties (i.e. it will not continue to cure and harden any further) at any temperatures which may be reached in the production, cooking, or consumption of cultured meat.
