Lyras develops Cold Pasteurization Technology

Pasteurization is a standard method to sterilize beverages during processing. However, it requires large amounts of energy to heat beverages to pasteurize them, making the process unsustainable. This is why startups are looking for non-thermal pasteurization techniques. For example, food processing startups use cold pasteurization to disinfect beverages with radiation.

Danish startup Lyras develops cold pasteurization technology to minimize water and energy use in the process. The startup’s technology uses low-pressure germicidal lamps that produce disinfecting UV light. This reduces the need for water in the production of dairy as well as juices, soft drinks, and other beverages. The process also saves energy and lowers the carbon footprint by eliminating the need for energy-intensive heating.

Nc’nean Distillery advances Sustainable Distilling

Alcohol production has a massive carbon footprint, with a large portion of it coming from distilleries. The distillation process also uses up large amounts of water and, moreover, the wastewater generated is too acidic for use in irrigation. That is why food & beverage (F&B) startups are developing new solutions to make distillation more sustainable. In addition to lowering water use, such solutions repurpose spent distillation ingredients.

British startup Nc’nean Distillery uses sustainable distilling practices in the production of its spirits. It makes whisky spirit from 100% organic Scottish barley grown with practices that boost biodiversity and soil health. The startup powers its copper pot stills with a biomass boiler that uses wood sourced responsibly from a local forest. Lastly, it uses green and renewable energy in the entire production process.

Goodmylk makes Plant-based Milk

The dairy industry contributes to massive greenhouse emissions. To address this, startups and companies are creating alternative dairy solutions. For instance, cultures globally have long consumed different kinds of plant milk. With developments in FoodTech, startups now offer plant-based milk with a similar nutritional and taste profile as dairy milk.

Indian startup Goodmylk produces plant-based alternatives to dairy. The startup uses locally procured raw materials and processes them locally to minimize environmental impact. It uses peanuts and cashews to produce plant-based milk, replacing animal agriculture, and carefully converted microbial strain to produce yogurt. Further, the company uses recyclable materials for packaging and offers flexible packaging, wherever possible.

Arela Chemicals turns Waste-to-Value

Utilizing agricultural waste as raw ingredients presents a way for beverage companies to make their production sustainable. It reduces the environmental impact by diverting waste from landfills as well as reducing the need for land to grow the crops for ingredients. This is why FoodTech startups are turning to waste valorization solutions. Such solutions produce high-value chemicals while also enabling a circular economy.

Arela Chemicals is a Ghanaian startup producing high-purity chemicals. The startup uses biogas generated from corn stover to power its production process. It manufactures high-purity chemicals for use in the food & beverage industries where it offers liquefied carbon dioxide (CO2) for sustainable beverage production.

SinFooTech produces Soy Alcoholic Beverage

Food processing units generate large amounts of waste that are generally not usable further. To incorporate these back into food production, startups are leveraging a range of bioconversion technologies. By adding value to food waste, these solutions open up another revenue stream for F&B companies. For instance, startups are brewing new alcoholic beverages from a variety of food waste.

Singaporean startup SinFooTech produces a soy-based alcoholic beverage. The startup’s patented fermentation technology converts soy whey, a byproduct from tofu production, into Sachi, an alcoholic drink. Sachi has a sake-like flavor profile, is gluten-free, and rich in antioxidants. SinFooTech is presently scaling up its fermentation process as well as developing new variants of Sachi.
