Blue Foods covering very diverse foods harvested from aquatic resources can have a meaningful contribution in our transition to a healthy and sustainable future food system. However, up to 70% of processed blue foods escapes the food value chain as side streams which goes to animal feed or waste.
AquaFood provides technologies for upcycling of these valuable side streams back to human food chain. The unique technology upcycles seafood side steams into multiple high value products such as gel-forming proteins, omega-3 rich oils, marine collagens, chitin, etc., for food, nutraceutical and pharmaceutical application.
The technology, which is run at cold, can deal with the complex and sensitive nature of aquatic side streams and valorize them to high quality and functional marine ingredients. AquaFood’s technologies provide a holistic approach for increasing resource efficiency and sustainability in blue food chain.
