London: The lab-grown burger which costs 250,000 pounds is all set to go on a menu at an undisclosed location.

Two Volunteers would be served the `artificially created` burger, including the mystery tycoon who has funded the project, the Mirror reported.

Professor Mark Post from Maastricht University in the Netherlands and his team used cow stem cells to create 20,000 tiny strips of meat.

These then self-organised into muscle and were electrified to help them bulk up.

Beetroot juice and saffron were added for colouring.
