Hearts are muscle so that can be lab grown as well. Most organ meats should be possible as well. We could have a lot more variety of meats as well. Basically any animal could be grown without killing an animal. Panda chops could be consumed guilt free. Dog soup, no problem. That Polynesian cannibal recipe book could actually be used again.

Cannibalism. Now that's something I haven't considered before... Maybe 2030 will be the year then.

Yes theroatically everything could be grown. Ears, heart, liver. The issue is that if these things become a niche product, it flips the economics on its head. Right now people use these things because they are readily avaliable waste products that are cheap. If they are niche products, they will most certainly become expensive. I can see how a chicken heart could cost more per gram than a high end steak. If this was the case, ain't no one going to be eating chicken hearts except at super fancy restaurants, which would be a pity.

This is how ox tails are now as expensive as Ribeye cuts. People figured out how delicious you can cook them and now its not the same price as ground beef.
