Is ABUNDA mycoprotein plant-based?

Technically speaking, no, since it is the result of the fermentation of the fungus, Fusarium Venanatum. Sometimes in the common language, mycoprotein is included under the plant-based umbrella, but it would be more correct to call it an "alternative protein".

Is Plenitude a company?

No, Plenitude is a consortium of 10 partners operating under the funding program Horizon 2020. Plenitude is funded by the European Commission and the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking and lasts 6 years (2019-2025).

Where is Plenitude based?

Plenitude's partners are spread across Europe (e.g., The Netherlands, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom). The ENOUGH plant where ABUNDA is produced is located in Sas Van Gent, The Netherlands, co-located with a Cargill bio-refinery.

What does "integrated bio-process" mean?

Plenitude's core is the integrated bio-process bringing together bio-ethanol and mycoprotein production. The two distinct processes are integrated meaning that they share the input, a grain-based feedstock, and are co-located, to reduce potential issues related to transportation. In fact, the Cargill bio-refinery and the ENOUGH mycoprotein plant are just a few hundred meters from each other. This makes both bio-processes more sustainable.

What does ABUNDA mycoprotein taste of?

ABUNDA has a rather neutral taste, allowing a diverse range of food applications.
