The company making the cheese claim that the product will be the first vegan cheese rather than a cheese substitute. They also say it may be a while before the finished product is ready for sale…..
‘San Francisco-based iGem group said it found a way to make cheese proteins using genetic sequences found in mammals.
The DNA blueprints are inserted into the yeast, which creates cheese that is vegan-compatible because of the lack of animal products.
Some of the DNA strands are from humans, because the developers hope milk proteins made from our own species will mean less chance of allergic reactions.’
