To eradicate the problems of Protein Efficiency Malnutrition along with tackling micronutrient related deficiencies especially targeting underdeveloped regions of the world for a healthy and resilient future by bringing a Protein Revolution
Our vision is to help the government reduce stunting and food waste from the most suffering region in Indonesia, East Nusa Tenggara Province, by cultivating the larvae of black soldier fly: A new promising protein source for livestock. We aim in five years; our innovation can contribute to the decrement of stunting case and reduce the food waste in this area, for better health, environment, and financial of people around there.
Our aim is to reuse the waste stream of canola oil processing, the rapeseed press cake and use it in noodles production. This would address the problem of reducing waste during the production, producing a new product which is high in protein content as well as calories. Moreover, the carbon footprint of canola oil processing is relatively low. In long term we hope to make at least a small impact in global pollution, introduce proteins from a plant based source and deliver a nutritious protein rich meal to the market.
Propers envisioned to develop healthy and sustainable products from underutilized tropical protein sources. In the next five years, we aim to capture value from an abundant and underutilized rubber seed.
soy protein can serve as a good source of plant-based protein for people who don't consume animal proteins, including vegetarians and vegans, allowing them to reap the important benefits of this nutrient.
Cyanobacteria Purification Program
We wish to solve the problem of water eutrophication, cyanobacterial bloom and high purity extraction of phycocyanin. We are trying to establish an environment friendly production line to solve the problem of cyanobacteria pollution in China. When the technology is perfect, it will be rolled out around the world.
In the last century, global food crises have been predicted, but prevented so far. By being innovative, we have staved off catastrophe. But we cannot sit still; we have to keep exploring.
We could turn more nature land into agricultural land. We could invent more meat analogues. We could add more animals to our diet. We could breed more cultivars.
We could do more, but we can also do less.
India has the lowest average protein consumption as compared to other Asian countries with an average intake of approx. 0.6gm/ kg body weight (RDA: 0.8-1gm/ kg body weight) which is the major cause of malnutrition among varied age groups. A 2017 survey shows that 73% of Indians are protein deficient. At PROOKIES, we aim to resolve this issue by adding protein rich cookies to the diet of Indians.
Wood for Thought
We want to produce sustainable protein by exploring if we can turn wood into an edible food source.
Pemla - Living Foods
At Pemla, we believe that living foods promote health for both people and planet. Our long-term goal is to source proteins, fats and carbohydrates from sustainable agriculture, especially regenerative agroforestry systems. Currently, agriculture continues to be a major source of environmental pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Human diets, and how we source ingredients, must evolve if civilization is to continue advancing on this delicate planet.
