      Production of New-Food Products

      Our diet and our understanding of food are changing. Above all, the origin of protein sources in terms of ethics and ecology is currently the focus of our society. To be able to continue to supply the world's growing population with vital nutrients and at the same time use the available resources sparingly, technical solutions are required. 

      The solution? Alternative proteins.

      Food of animal origin can be replaced with plant proteins, precise fermentation or cultivation of biomass, all of which provide equivalent products. And the increased efficiency in production means that natural resources are used more efficiently. 

       

      Fermentation for alternative proteins

      • Fermentation describes the conversion of organic substances by microorganisms or enzymes.
      • It enables resource-conserving and efficient production based on a nutrient solution.
      • Depending on the process, biomass is obtained by dividing the microorganisms or a product is produced using biotechnology.
         

      Alternative proteins can be produced on the basis of

      mycelium-forming fungi, from cultivated animal cells or using biotechnology.
      • Examples of foods produced by fermentation are:
        • Traditional fermentation: Beer, wine, cheese, salami, yoghurt 
        • Precise fermentation: Algae, yeast, mycelia, egg protein, milk protein
        • Pharmaceuticals: Insulin

      Foods based on proteins produced by fermentation no longer appeal to a niche market only: More and more consumers are attaching great importance to health, sustainability and animal welfare.

      Krones therefore supports food producers in designing the process technology and scaling it up to a higher production output for the production of alternative proteins.
