How many of us drink cow milk ? Most of us do. Cow milk consumption is expected to increase by 1.5% per person each year in the five coming years. The problem is that cow milk production has huge environmental impacts. Cow milk production is responsible for 3% of all greenhouse gases emissions in the world! Given that these emissions are mostly due to cows, we had the idea of producing milk without cows.
Milk is composed of sugars, nutrients and dairy proteins. Sugars and nutrients can be easily sourced, the challenge lies in producing the dairy proteins. For that, we will use state-of-the-art biotechnology that generates the exact same proteins that are present in cow milk, giving our synthetic milk the exact same taste.
