Next was Steve George, CEO and co-founder at Terra Bio, a ‘bio-fractionation’ company which makes proteins and other ingredients from upcycled feedstocks such as brewers’ spent grains.
“So our two lead products are unhydrolyzed spent grain proteins that are perfect for plant based meat replacements, and sugars, which we're positioning as a highly sustainable feedstock for the emerging fermentation industry.”
While others have ventured into this space, notably AB InBev spinoff EverGrain, he said, “Our differentiator is that our protein is unhydrolyzed, so it has the ability to impart texture to whatever food that it's added to.”
