Award-Winning Solution

Protein Revolution with Circular Economy

We create sustainable 100% vegan protein using edible fungi, through a circular economy process that reduces food loss at industries

What we do

Sustainable Protein for Food

Mycorena creates sustainable protein for food using a proprietary fungi-based process.

Our product, Promyc™, is a vegan protein ingredient with a neutral taste and a meat-like texture which has been gaining admiration among chefs. Promyc has a nutritious content of 55% protein and 20% fiber, while having significant lower environmental impact than animal or plant-based alternatives.

How is it different?

Creating Protein with Zero-Waste

Using an innovative fungi-based process, we create mycoprotein using side-streams or by-products from the food industry. By using these resources, we avoid the loss of valuable food, and allow the creation of vegan protein instead.

We work with businesses and industries and enable them to create a novel and sustainable food product, while creating value from their own industrial food loss.

Biotechnology Solution

Our Strategic Advantage

SMART PROTEIN

Less food waste, water use and CO2 emissions

Production of plant or animal foods is quite resource-intensive. In fact, 70% of the water used worldwide goes to agriculture! Our product is an upcycling of wasted resources. It uses water from industrial liquid side-streams and uses remains that would otherwise be thrown away.

LOWER FEEDSTOCK COSTS

A circular economy approach for lower costs

Traditionally, fermentation processes use sugar and starch from food crops like corn, or sugarcane. These feedstocks can be 65% of that process running costs. We use a low-value feedstock: side-streams and waste!

SAFE

Edible fungi. Safe and controlled sources

All our fungi are FDA-approved and classified as GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe). All our organisms are also non-GMO. We also control all the side-streams and waste sources we use, making sure we deliver a food-safe product with no harmful substances.
