Solein enters the food scene in a scoop of gelato
Singapore-based restaurant, Fico, is set to take us on an exciting food journey, unveiling the world's first Solein Chocolate Gelato.
The remarkable dessert is crafted from ingredients essentially conjured out of thin air, a feat made possible by Finnish tech company Solar Foods.
Solein, the protein-rich powder used to create the innovative gelato, saw its first regulatory approval in Singapore in September 2022.
Changing the way we look at food
Historically, all food production has relied on photosynthesis and traditional agriculture. But this time, Fico presents a gelato that says goodbye to these conventional methods.
The Solein Chocolate Gelato replaces dairy with Solein, thereby excluding any need for animal involvement.
Expanding the horizon of sustainable food
The versatility of Solein extends far beyond gelato. It's a novel ingredient that easily blends into various sweet and savory recipes, making it an ideal sustainable addition to any dish.
Solar Foods envisions a significant influx of Solein-based foods in the market in the upcoming years, indicating a promising future for this revolutionary ingredient.
From Finland to the world
Solar Foods is also building bridges with international brands. Recently, they announced a strategic alliance with Japanese food company Ajinomoto. This partnership is a stepping stone towards developing more Solein-based products.
With Solar Foods' commercial production facility, Factory 01, under construction in Finland and expected to start production in 2024, the world might soon witness the dawn of a new age in food sustainability.
