Wood as food: Arbiom CEO on creating high-protein yeast from wood

By Media Coverage

Arbiom uses microbial fermentation to transform carbohydrates from wood biomass and residues into a single-cell protein yeast that can be added to food and feed.

“If you walk in a forest, you see mushrooms growing on living trees and we took inspiration from that,” said Marc Chevrel, CEO of US-headquartered start-up Arbiom. “The mushroom is going to release enzymes to make the wood palatable to it and then use it to produce food. We are doing that but in a more systematic, efficient, and industrial way to close the protein gap.”

Torula yeast (Cyberlindnera jadinii) feed on woody biomass left as waste or residues from making wood products. Researchers can extract protein from those yeast. For pet food, torula yeast may have an advantage over other novel proteins.

From wood to fish feed: How to transform forestry residues into animal feed

From Phys.Org – October 22, 2019

The production process of ingredients for fish feed, including fishmeal and plant-based protein alternatives such as soybean, has significant implications for land and water use and greenhouse gas emissions. It contributes to climate change and biodiversity loss. With such challenges and rising concerns over food security, the use of sustainable sources of protein in animal feed, including fish feed, is becoming more appealing. Supported by the EU-funded SYLFEED project, researchers and industrial partners have completed scientific studies demonstrating the effectiveness of SylPro as an alternative protein ingredient for use in aquafeed…Link to full article from Phys.Org
