A scientist’s opinion Interview with Vesa Ruuskanen about microbial protein

A scientist’s opinion : Interview with Vesa Ruuskanen about microbial protein

Interview with Vesa Ruuskanen, post-doctoral researcher at LUT REFLEX research platform. The idea of producing “food from air” was developed by NASA and the Soviets. What was exactly the discovery of Finnish scientists that made this Neo Carbon Food project possible? Vesa Ruuskanen: In our previous Neo Carbon Food energy project we studied how we ...

EU project : PROTEIN2FOOD

EU project : PROTEIN2FOOD

The growing world population demands increased high-quality protein-rich food sources, while simultaneously considering human health, environmental sustainability, with more effective and ecological agricultural practices, and increased biodiversity. PROTEIN2FOOD addresses these challenges by developing high-quality food protein from multi-purpose seed crops and grain legumes, through optimised, sustainable production and processing methods. Coordination : Department of Plant ...

EU project : FIT4FOOD2030

EU project : FIT4FOOD2030

FIT4FOOD2030 supports the urgently needed transformation of research and innovation (R&I) on Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) in Europe. This transformation is needed to future-proof the European food systems: to make them more sustainable and resilient, and to find solutions for the many food-related challenges Europe is facing, including hunger, malnutrition, obesity, climate change, scarce ...

Bean there, done that : why we should eat more beans and legumes in general

Bean there, done that : why we should eat more beans and legumes in general

The world needs more protein, but animal-based protein intake is by no means sustainable. Legumes are a good alternative to meat and thanks to their biological nitrogen fixation capacities, they also benefit the environment.
