Our
Technology

The ingredients you want for advanced foods

Our technology allows us to obtain high-value ingredients for consumers, manufacturers and Nature alike. We achieve this by relying on an abundant raw material and with low requirements for natural and physical resources.

A truly scalable production

We have thought about every detail, taking out the obstacles that commonly limit the production of ingredients – the implementation of our technology, its scalability and its benefits for the planet open the doors to an effective food industry for both the consumer, the manufacturer, the society and the planet.

A mission accomplished together

By including our ingredients in traditional recipes or in new formulations, you bring our products to more consumers, thus strengthening a food industry that now can also regenerate the planet and make food production available in any corner of the planet, bringing everyone the nutrition they deserve.

Our Solutions

F1t
Texturizer

Used in the manufacture of alternative and traditional meats mainly. Any product can now have the desired texture and consistency in a natural way, thanks to our texturizer that can increase its resistance / elasticity up to 10 times without adding further water to the blend.

F1.1
Protein

A truly accessible vegan protein. It contains 18 of the 21 amino acids in nature, of which 8 are essential for humans. Its production is up to 20 times more efficient than the most popular vegan proteins; of natural production with 100% traceability.

F2
Animal feed

We believe that animals too deserve a balanced diet. Constantly available and accessible; We achieve this with a feed rich in glycogen, protein, soluble and insoluble fiber and simple sugars that guarantee the basis for healthy development, whether in the form of an ingredient, complement or supplement.

F2.1
Fertilizer

Simple, fast-absorbing nutrients for natural-occurring microbiomes and fauna. We do not try to substitute crops of any kind, in fact we support those that do not compromise environmental sustainability; We achieve this with a fertilizer naturally immune to the majority of pathogenic fungi that additionally enriches the soil with simple nutrients, that is quickly absorbed by endemic microbiomes and faune. With this, we promote healthier crops in healthier soils that sequestre further more CO2.

F2.2
Renewable energy

Energy is neither created nor destroyed. And we prevent it from becoming a problem for the planet. We achieve this by harvesting it in the form of biogas to fuel our own activities, those of our partners and even those of third parties.
