Moving Past Plants to Meaty Mycelium

Time: 9:15 am
day: Day One


  • While technologies such as extrusion make it possible for plant proteins to resemble animal proteins, the process is expensive
  • Fungi are more closely related to animals than to plants on the evolutionary tree
  • Mycelium of certain fungi species has a naturally meaty texture that can be used as a meat replacement or enhancer with very little processing
