Alternative proteins, part 4: Cell-based meat

2021-06-18T16:43:42+02:00Friday 18 June 2021|Health - Cosmetics - Agribusiness, Innovation, Research|

The next generation in bio-manufactured alternative proteins after fermentation is cultured meat and dairy products including milk. Cultured meat comes from stem cells collected from a living animal using minimally invasive methods. Then, the cells are grown in bioreactors with nutrients coming from a cell culture media and a scaffolding structure. These immature cells ...

What could be the role of fermentation in the alternative protein field? This article highlights some advantages of biomanufactured proteins over plant-based proteins and some remaining challenges to address. Advantages Fermentation based processes present several advantages over animal and plant-based proteins: Space and mass efficiency. Fermentation allows to produce much more protein per surface area ...

Alternative proteins, part 2: plant-based proteins

2021-06-18T16:32:54+02:00Friday 18 June 2021|Health - Cosmetics - Agribusiness, Innovation, Research|

To achieve meat-like products, plant-based alternatives rely on three manufacturing steps: crop development, ingredient optimization to get rid of the unwanted parts of the plant, and end product formulation and manufacturing to create the texture. A need for developing and optimizing crops for protein content, quality, and function, and cost-efficiency.  Both historical crops used ...

Alternative proteins, part 1: drivers
