Mission and technology
"How to produce milk without cow?"
Precision fermentation has been used for decades to produce products , whether pharmaceutical (insulin, vitamins, etc.) or food (rennet for cheese or vanillin for making cakes).
We are now able to apply this technology to milk proteins to recreate dairy products similar in all respects to animal-based dairy products.
We combine cow DNA with nutritional yeast.
We give water, sugar and nutrients to our yeast.
We recover the milk proteins produced by our yeast.
We partner with our clients from the food industry to help them recreate the dairy products we love using our animal-free proteins.
To quantify the impact of our technology compared to conventional milk production we asked independent experts to perform a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of our overall process. Results are very promising with a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 97%, drinking water consumption down by 99% and energy usage reduced by 50%!
