Growing food from thin air

10 Jun 2020

Solar Foods uses renewable energy and carbon dioxide to create a nutrient and protein-filled powder that is similar to wheat and bland in taste, called ‘Solein’. It is a new vegan protein that the company claims is “100 times more climate friendly than any animal or plant-based alternative and 10 times more efficient than soy production in terms of land use”. Co-Founder and CEO Pasi Vainikka believes humanity is on the verge of a new food revolution and Solar Foods is already ahead of the game.
