Did you know, that >50% of grown plants are not used and some discarded plants have more protein than beef?
By using 100% of plants, we are making meals wholesome, feeding a growing population and planet friendly. That’s why we make our snacks from discarded parts of plants.
*For you, that mean’s 3x more plant protein, 2x more fiber and 70% less fat than typical potato chips.
Let’s admit; we need a strategy for how to reduce our environmental footprint globally. Soon we will not have enough land to grow enough food for the global population. Currently, we disregard and waste many parts of already the grown plants.
For instance, Sunflower meal left after oil extraction from seeds used as an animal feed today. Farmers are feeding a 35% protein feed to cows to produce 26% protein beef for humans. Isn’t it ridiculous to feed 35% protein meal to get 26% protein beef? We believe that the best strategy to reduce human impact on the environment is to avoid wastage of food.
PLANETARIANS is developing high protein snacks for a growing population from by-products of the food industry, without the need to grow more crops.
*Our Vision is to replace animal agriculture with more efficient technology to be able to feed ten times more people from the same ingredients which are used as animal feed today.
*Our Mission is to develop tasty, nutritious, cost-effective alternatives to animal products in growing segments such as healthy snacks and make them available for customers passionate about reducing the impact on the planet.
How are sunflower chips made?
PLANETARIANS technology uses a thermo-mechanical energy to cook meals at high temperature and high pressure over a short term. It combines best features from Ultra-high temperature (UHT) and High pressure processing (HPP) in one step.
Afterwards, we sprinkle some oil, apply seasoning and package into individual bags.
