Scientists Create Single-Cell Protein Meals Using Electricity and Carbon Dioxide
Scientists from two research institutes in Finland have developed a unique method of producing a batch of nutritious single-cell protein. By further optimizing the novel procedure, the researchers said the proteins can be enhanced to be fit for human and animal consumption. If applied on a global scale, this food production technology could potentially provide a sustainable and convenient solution to alleviating world hunger.
