Good Luck.
Two food critics have eaten meat that was [grown / growth] in a lab. It is the first time anyone has [eating / eaten] artificial meat. The experiment is part of a project [run / ran] by Google co-founder Sergey Brin. He invested over $380,000 in research for the burger. It [took/ did] a team of scientists at a university in Holland over two months to grow the meat for the [party / patty] . They used stem cells [from / for] a cow and grew 20,000 [tinny / tiny] pieces of meat. These were mixed with salt, egg powder, breadcrumbs and other [ingredient / ingredients] to make the burger. Mr Brin hopes artificial meat will become part of our [dietary / diets] in ten years. He wants to stop animals from being killed for food. He also knows stem-cell meat will be [better / well] for the environment.

Mr Brin's burger was [let / put] to the taste test on Monday. Two food experts tried the beef burger. An English [chief / chef] fried it in sunflower oil and butter. Austrian food [science / scientist] Hanni Rutzler said it was “close to meat” but it “[lacked / lacking] juiciness”. She also thought it was a little harder than she [expectation / expected] . US author Josh Schonwald commented that it was a [little / small] dry but was like a real burger. He said: “The [absent / absence] is the fat. It has a leanness but the [bit / bite] feels like a conventional hamburger.” Many journalists wanted a taste, but there was only one burger. Lead researcher Mark Post said he would give any [leftovers / afters] to his children. He said cells taken from one cow could [produce / production] 175 million burgers.
