Planetarians: Upcycling Food By-Products and Solid Waste into Plant-Based Proteins
Planetarians is on a mission to make healthy ingredients affordable via sustainable manufacturing, with a stated goal of redirecting 100% of all defatted sunflower seeds into direct human consumption by 2030. The company’s patented technology does not use chemicals, uses 0.5:1 water, and does not generate by-products. It is looking for allies for scale-up trials to validate product assumptions including beef-like muscle whole cuts with clean taste (no off-flavors), better texture (due to combination of proteins), higher protein quality (due to amino acid compensation), that is sustainable (zero waste) and affordable (costs reduced 200-400%).
