5s4a: Bioconversion of Wood Residue into Protein-rich, Edible Fungal Mycelium
With a growing world population and increasing prosperity, conventional protein production based on livestock and crops appears to be climate-unfriendly, resourceintensive, and nitrogen inefficient. To feed the planet sustainably, we need alternative protein-rich food sources that are good for both environmental and human health. One of such sources is edible fungi, which have a nice protein profile (20~30% of dry matter, containing all the essential amino acids), fast growth rates, and low production costs. Fungi-based proteins are hence promised as â€the future of fake meatâ€.
