The Good Food Institute works with scientists, investors, and entrepreneurs to make groundbreaking good food a reality. They focus on clean meat and plant-based alternatives to animal products — foods that are more delicious, safer to eat, and better for the planet than their outdated counterparts.
Last year they announced a call for research project worth 3M dollars from two generous donors. Now, 66 submissions from 18 countries and many rounds of review later, they announced fourteen scientists whose projects will be funded through GFI’s inaugural Competitive Research Grant Program. The resulting research in critical areas of plant-based and cell-based meat R&D will be shared for the benefit of the entire scientific community and good food industry.
We are happy to announce that The Center of Food and Fermentation Technologies research project “Fermentation of oat protein for application in extruded meat analogs” was one of the funded projects. The project leader Mari-Liis Tammik said: “We are excited to go in more detail with our research which is aiming to make plant-based meat better digestible”.
