Moolec Science expands its meat-focused portfolio for alternative proteins with the development of egg replacements and the expansion of its dairy offer.
Moolec’s technological platform is based on molecular farming; a hybrid approach to plant and cell-based production technologies for alternative proteins.
“We started exploring the space more than 10 years ago,” said Gastón Paladini, CEO and Co-Founder, Moolec Science. “We were the first team to fully deregulate a molecular farming crop and its functionalized protein concentrate for its use in the cheese-making industry, a product that has been successfully used in the manufacturing of thousands of tons of soft and hard cheeses. Since then, we expanded to animal-free meat ingredients and are now announcing a broadening of our pipeline into dairy and egg replacements.”
