'At least it tastes of meat!': World's first test-tube artificial beef 'Googleburger' gets GOOD review as it's eaten for the first time

  • The 142g patty cost £250,000 to make and consists of meat grown in a lab

  • Total of 20,000 strips of meat were grown in petri dishes in the Netherlands

  • The artificial meat was electrically stimulated to bulk up the 'muscle' and then blended with 200 pieces of lab-grown animal fat

  • Red beetroot juice and saffron added to provide authentic beef colouring

  • It has also been revealed that one of the burger's financial backers is computer entrepreneur, and Google co-founder, Sergey Brin
