high-value protein from precision fermentation
Same nutritional value
97% less greenhouse gases
We produce the same high-value proteins as mamals - but with precision fermentation. This does not harm any animal, emmits 97% less greenhouse gases and has the same (or better) nutritional values as dairy proteins.
THE Solution: Dairy protein from precision fermentation
two billion more mouths to feed by 2050
blah blah .
We have developed a unique precision fermentation process to produce a powder form of casein, the main protein found in milk, and a new and improved form of vitamin B12 – all without needing a cow. *MAGIC*
Through our high-quality ingredients, we are creating a more sustainable food supply value chain that provides equivalent nutrition along with significant reductions in GHG emissions.
Equivalent Nutrition – Reduced GHG emissions
Concerns about climate change and increased efforts to reduce additional negative impact on our environment are among some of reasons that more and more people chose to consume less animal meat and dairy products or follow a vegan lifestyle. People who eat vegan diets do not eat meat or any animal products, including dairy.
Diet changes in developing countries also contribute in a new way to global warming.
while first world countries are consuming less meat to try to combat climate change, people in developing countries are additing more animal products to their diets, and that brings a new source of greenhouse gas emissions.
In it together
We all have a responsibility to act now to reduce GHG emissions in any way that we can. So, we are moo-ving our resources behind finding solutions for these problems, find out more about Our Research.
Less natural resources dedicated to farming
Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
Better for the environment and for future generations
dairy protein without the cow -
how does that even work?
Greenhouse gases are a main driver of global warming and climate change and therefore their reduction is one of the key priorities of the world, spelled-out in the global Goals of Sustainable Development by the United Nations and adopted by all 195 member states in 2015.
Dairy production is responsible for the annual emission of about 1’700 million tons of greenhouse gases (GHG) – or 2.5 kg CO2 equivalent per kilogram of milk, mainly from the enteric fermentation of the cows. That is A LOT!
More than half of these emissions are in the form of methane (CH4), which is quite significant, because methane has a much stronger global warming potential than carbon dioxide. So, unfortunately one could say that the cute cows that humankind has domesticated for 10'000 years are causing a significant, yet controllable, part of climate change.
