They bit, they chewed, but had hoped for more flavor.

Two volunteers who participated in the first public frying of hamburger grown in a lab said Monday that it had the texture of meat but was short of flavor because of the lack of fat.

Mark Post, whose team at Maastricht University in the Netherlands developed the burger, hopes that making meat in labs could eventually help feed the world and fight climate change.

Sergey Brin, a co-founder of Google, announced that he funded the $330,000 project because of his concern for animal welfare.

Austrian nutritionist Hanni Ruetzler, one of the testers, says it was "close to meat" but "not that juicy." U.S. journalist Josh Schonwald made similar comments.
