BIOCONVERSION OF UNDERUTILIZED RESOURCES INTO NEXT GENERATION PROTEINS FOR FOOD AND FEED

Project description

Building a case for edible insects

A warming climate, a growing population and changing consumption patterns are straining the food production system. Responding to the growing needs of farmers, producers and consumers, the EU is searching for solutions. The EU-funded NextGenProteins project has identified microalgae, single cell protein and insects as promising sources of alternative proteins. There’s a case for pairing edible microorganisms with emerging technologies. Proteins can be produced through innovative and environmentally sustainable bioconversion processes using industrial waste streams, causing limited environmental impacts and putting minimum pressure on natural resources. NextGenProteins will work to boost the acceptability and trust of consumers towards alternative proteins and processes. Overall, it will help to strengthen food security, sustainability and self-sufficiency of EU protein production.
