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.
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!
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.
