Space Tech Creates Food From Thin Air

Food doesn’t appear out of thin air, some of us might have heard this while growing up.

But now, it can.

Solar Foods claims to have created a protein powder using only CO2, water, vitamins, and renewable electricity!

Technology developed by NASA was used to create the powder, which they have called Solein, and it looks and tastes like wheat flour but is actually 50% protein.

“Conventional food production wastes water at unsustainable and unreasonable levels. We wanted to fix that,” states that Finnish company’s website. “Solein is 100 times more climate-friendly than any animal or plant-based alternative. Unlike conventional protein production, it takes just a fraction of water to produce 1 kilogram of Solein. As with water use, the same game-changing effect applies to land use efficiency as well, with Solein being 10 times more efficient than soy production by a metric of usable protein yields per acre.”

Solein is expected in stores in the next two years.
