-COP28: Angel Yeast's environmentally friendly yeast protein powers sustainable development
SHANGHAI, Dec. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Angel Yeast, (SH600298), the world's leading yeast manufacturer, is responding to the COP28 call to action taking place from November 30 to December 12 in Dubai with concrete actions and sustainable solutions.
With the theme "Actionism", the COP28 agenda focuses on encouraging people to make changes, generate momentum and prepare to meet the challenges of climate change, with particular emphasis on the role of people and nature in action climate.
Inger Andersen, head of UNEP, commented at a press conference on December 8 during COP28 in which a report on the positive impact of the new protein was published, "What is cooking: an assessment of the potential impacts of alternatives "selected novelties to conventional animal products", that the new protein is a solution to the growing demand for meat products and their consumption to the environment. Andersen hopes that more researchers can come together and fill the gaps of new protein nutrition, cell-cultured meat and fermented proteins, and only research with more government support, international safety standards, business support and collaboration can accelerate the transformation of the food system and development of new proteins.
Angel Yeast proactively promotes the application of yeast protein, providing potential sustainable solutions for people taking advantage of biotechnological innovations.
As a central component of the food system, the protein production system is being reshaped. On December 1, the National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China included yeast protein as a key project of the R&D program of Hubei Province in the new catalog of food raw materials, marking a milestone in the fact that China , a country with a large population and well-developed livestock farming, has taken the initiative to recognize yeast protein, that "finding energy and proteins in microorganisms" is not just a simple slogan, but a key factor in future sustainable food solutions to global level.
Yeast protein: a smart way to solve the protein crisis
It is estimated that by 2050, the world population will reach 9.7 billion in the worst possible scenarios. This population growth will create a protein shortage of up to 250 million tonnes, but filling the gap through animal farming will accelerate global warming and take up land for food crops, eventually leading to greater negative impacts on the environment.
According to statistics from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the World Resources Institute, carbon emissions from the livestock industry (including livestock farming) account for about 15 percent of global carbon emissions. The greenhouse gases emitted when producing one kilogram of animal protein are significantly greater than those from the production of plant protein.
Yeast protein: A friendly solution for the planet
Yeast protein is produced by culturing, fermenting and centrifuging Saccharomyces Cerevisiae to collect crude bacterial materials. Its nutritional composition is protein, fat, dietary fiber and water. It is approved in the US as a nutritional supplement, while the EU has approved Saccharomyces cerevisiae protein as a new food raw material with no consumption limit.
Unlike plant-based protein, the microbial fermentation process to produce yeast proteins is sustainable, scalable and reliable to ensure a constant supply regardless of weather conditions.
Angel Yeast has achieved mass production of yeast proteins and tackled the production technology of high purity yeast proteins. The product has been successfully applied in condiments, meat products, plant-based meats, dairy products and products with nutritional function. Its annual yeast protein production capacity has reached 10,000 tons per year, with plans to establish an additional production line with an annual capacity of 30,000 tons. Yeast protein production significantly reduces water consumption, takes up less arable land and leaves a smaller carbon footprint. Wastewater from production can be used as organic yeast fertilizer to achieve a circular economy, making it an important factor in the fight against climate change and the challenges of energy shortages.
Promotion of sustainable development of the food industry and remodeling of the protein products system
Following the increasingly severe impact of the climate crisis and population growth, sustainable development is now imperative for food supply and human health, and the protein production system is being reshaped.
Angel Yeast protein is a complete protein that has nine essential amino acids and is a reliable, environmentally friendly and sustainable nutritional product, making it an ideal substitute for plant and animal proteins without any risk of GMO or other protein problems.
The BCAA content in yeast protein is slightly higher than that of whey protein, which is beneficial for muscle recovery. Angel Yeast's product also has a higher dietary fiber content to support gut health and, as a slow-digesting protein, can consistently provide amino acids to the body.
Angel Yeast is committed to promoting the green development of the industry and boosting sustainability initiatives with research including AngeoPro yeast protein. Analysis has shown that AngeoPro is more similar to animal protein than plant protein and, as a fermented product, wastewater from the production process can be used as organic fertilizers for yeast production cultures to create a circular economy.
Yeast Protein addresses barriers that prevent consumers from purchasing animal protein supplements, as well as the limited health effects and sustainability issues of plant-based protein.
"As a pioneer in the yeast sector, Angel Yeast heads Hubei Province's major R&D initiative titled 'yeast protein key technology application research and development'. The company is a pioneer in the introduction of yeast protein , a microprotein, in diets, which is a big step in our mission to reduce our carbon footprint," said Zhang Yan, dean of the Angel Yeast Research Institute.
