Making more with less
Plenitude is the EU-funded flagship project pioneering the mycoprotein value chain of the future
By bringing together 10 partners from across Europe, we are creating ultra-sustainable foods and bio-based products using an innovative, minimal-waste fermentation process
The Better Protein
Mycoprotein is a protein-rich ingredient that comes from the Kingdom of Fungi—a hidden world of microorganisms with millions of species covering every surface of the planet. While some grow to form the fruiting bodies we know as mushrooms, others have different superpowers.
PLENITUDE is developing new applications for Fusarium venenatum, a species with impressive nutritional, flavor, and texture profiles that can easily be used in place of animal proteins to support more sustainable and healthier diets.
PLENITUDE partners leverage an innovative, circular bioprocess integrating the production of bio ethanol and mycoprotein. The result is ABUNDA, an ingredient used to produce high quality foods and bio-based products that set new standards for both sustainability and scalability.
Develop a wide range of foods and bio-based products with ABUNDA
Study the nutritional characteristics of ABUNDA
Conduct life cycle anylyses to assess the environmental and social impact of ABUNDA
Communicate and disseminate project results to the public
