Job title: Founder & Chief Executive Officer
PLANETARIANS is the next platform for alternative meats: clean, water-efficient, cheap.
Why: When the alternative meat consumption grows from the current 2% to a projected 23%, where will the industry get proteins? Isolation, fermentation, cultured… all of them require it’s own ingredients for proteins. They might be not so readily available in the food system on the Earth…
What: PLANETARIANS developed a new platform to make alternative meats from animal feed (Sunflower, Corn DDGS, Pulses). Skipping protein isolation it uses just 0.5:1 water (no chemicals). Product prototypes have umami taste, improved protein quality and lower costs than meats made from isolates and concentrates.
How: Solid-state fermentation converts carbs in the ingredients into extra protein in addition to inherent one and improves PDCAAS. Wet extrusion works as a kill step and creates a meat-like texture.
