WACKER and Biosyntia to develop large-scale production process for sustainable biotin

  Danish biotech company Biosyntia and the Munich-based WACKER Group will form a partnership to develop a large-scale production process for fermentation-based biotin. The aim of the collaboration is to make fermentation-based biotin available for the market as a sustainable, non-chemical, European-sourced alternative. The biotin currently available on the market is synthetically produced from non-renewable […]


Most consumers in UK, Denmark, Sweden and Germany do not see nutrition as part of sustainable diets – Arla Foods survey

Two thirds of consumers living in the UK, Denmark, Sweden and Germany do not see nutrition as part of a sustainable diet, which could lead to them becoming ‘nutrition blind’ and have unintended consequences for their health. These are the findings of a recent survey of more than 8,000 consumers in these countries conducted by […]


Alfa Laval membrane filtration systems to turn crop leftovers into prebiotic dietary fibre for a Danish food facility

Alfa Laval, a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling, will supply membrane filtration systems to a food facility in Denmark for the production of healthy dietary fibre from crop leftovers. The company’s membranes will be used to extract fibres from sources such as brewers’ grains, corn stover and wheat straw, improving […]


Finnish researchers grow sustainable coffee with cellular agriculture

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has successfully produced coffee cells in a bioreactor through cellular agriculture. The innovation can help to make the production of coffee more sustainable. The first batches produced by VTT in a laboratory in Finland smell and taste like conventional coffee.


Scientists identify protein that activates plant response to nitrogen deficiency

Nitrates are critical for the growth of plants, so plants have evolved sophisticated mechanisms to ensure sufficient nitrate uptake from their environments. In a new study published in Nature Plants [1], researchers at Nagoya University, Japan, have identified a plant enzyme that is key to activating a nitrate uptake mechanism in response to nitrogen starvation. […]


Microbes and hybrid vigour in maize

The interaction between maize and soil microbes influences hybrid vigour, according to a recent study [1]. Many commercial varieties of crops such as maize are first-generation crosses of inbred lines, and their hybrid vigour leads to increased yield.


Climate change threatens food security of 65 nations

Scientists have projected that millions of people in 65 nations globally, including those in Africa and South-East Asia and the Pacific, could face increased malnutrition as climate change and overfishing take their toll on fisheries.


Bluu grows cell-based fish in bioreactor

Already about 90 percent of all fish stocks are considered maximally exploited or overfished, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.
