The main topic is the challenge of how to get a more realistic color change (red to brown) for cultured/lab-grown meat.
I was wondering if you could describe a lit bit of the meat color chemistry, structure, muscle light scattering, or any other challenge and mechanism.

-Myoglobin Chemistry and Meat Color
-Chromatic heme pigments
-physical structure and achromatic light scattering properties of the muscle
