Bioengineer Milk Appears, Using Yeast To Produce Milk Protein

From laboratories in Silicon Valley to laboratories in Switzerland, hundreds of millions of dollars are used to develop and produce Bioengineer Milk that has the same taste as ordinary milk but contains different proteins.


87% of ordinary milk is water, and the rest of the protein includes protein, enzymes, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. The latter is where the artificial milk technology really takes time.

In the laboratory, scientists in turn put these chemicals into test tubes according to consumer needs, and use bioengineered yeast to produce real milk protein. The ultimate goal is to replicate the taste of ordinary milk, but at the same time be richer.

The biggest advantage of artificial milk is that it is healthier. Taking breast milk oligosaccharides as an example, the substance can regulate intestinal flora, prevent diarrhea and fight infection. Recently, the World Health Organization has also found that it can also prevent babies from becoming obese. But this is a substance that is almost profitable and harmless.


In addition, artificial milk is also more environmentally friendly. About 3% of greenhouse gas emissions per year are attributable to dairy production. If the global consumption of dairy products and meat is stopped, 75% of the cultivated land area can be saved, and the area saved is as much as the United States plus China, the European Union, and Australia. If the artificial milk is really accepted by the market, then the above credit can be recorded in its name.

Of course, artificial milk wants to be truly recognized by the market, not only to control costs, but also to be ready to accept the test of dairy farmers and dairy consumers.
