|Tech Startup Develops "Diary Milk" Without Cows by cosse(m): 11:02am On Aug 18|
California-based Start up "Perfect Day" is using fungi to make dairy protein that is "molecularly identical" to the protein in cow's milk. That means it can be used to make dairy products such as cheese and yogurt.
The firm has assembled the gene that codes protein in cow's milk, and introduced it into a fungus. When the fungus is grown in fermentation tanks, it produces "whey protein", which is then filtered and dried into a powder used in products including cheese and ice cream — which are already on the shelves in the United States and Hong Kong.
According to the start-up,"We were interested in the question of what is in milk ... that gives it incredible versatility and nutrition that is somehow missing from the plant-based milks,"
The firm has emphasized that "[It's for] people who still love dairy, but want to feel better about it for themselves, for the planet, and for the animal.
Although Perfect Day's protein contains no lactose, hormones or cholesterol, it isn't suitable for people with a dairy allergy. But as the process involves no animals, they describe the product as "vegan-friendly."
