10 clues of what the food of the future will be like


The impact that pandemic is causing an acceleration of the innovation, the technology and digitization in all sectors. Many questions and uncertainties arise as to what the future will bring us in this complex context, how will we relate, how will the new forms of work be and of course how we will feed ourselves.

In this last scenario is where new forms appear that lead innovation based on the “food design”, “food tech” or the “social food”, through redesigning the world of food combined with the social and environmental challenges that are demanded at the moment.

Thanks to Foodture Barcelona, The innovation congress where the world's most cutting-edge techniques and projects are made available to future inventors, we have made a compilation of 10 projects that help us understand what will the food of the future be like and that you can also follow through Instagram.

The way we eat has changed a lot in the last century, but we continue to use the same sources as our ancestors: we eat plants and animals that eat plants. Would you be able to imagine an alternative to agriculture? Finnish researchers not only imagined, how they managed to develop a food from the air. Hi? . Swear! The product is a flour rich in protein, made by bacteria fed with hydrogen extracted from water. It has no taste, precisely to make it as versatile as possible: can become bread, meat, sauce, cookie, ice cream and what else can we imagine. And then you ask me: what's the advantage of that? . currently, at least 25% of greenhouse gases come from food production and that number tends to increase as the population of the planet increases. Our current model is not very efficient because it uses a lot of soil, water and energy to generate countless problems, as excess CO2, deforestation and pollution. . Solar Foods' flour causes 10 a 100 times less damage to the environment, depending on the source of electrical energy used in the process. It is totally independent of the climate, it requires very few resources and can be manufactured almost anywhere. With the necessary investments, the first factory is due to open in 2025 already able to compete with the soy market. Likes the idea? Tell us in the comments if this alternative makes you suspicious or hopeful! . George Monbiot wrote a very complete article on @guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jan/08/lab-grown-food-destroy-farming-save-planet You can access it through the bio link! . #nalatainfo #solarfoods #apocalypsecow #solein #veganism #sustainability #agriculture #protein #meat #vegetarian #technology

3.- Space Food Systems

As on earth, nutrition plays a key role in maintaining the health and optimal performance of astronauts before, during and after space flight. Food that flies in orbit should not only be of high quality, they must be appetizing even when an astronaut's taste buds have changed due to fluid changes in weightlessness.

It must also be safe, easy to prepare and eat in a confined space with limited heating options. The team of Space Food Systems must meet the nutritional needs of each crew member and meet limited storage space requirements, limited preparation options and the difficulties of eating without severity. Food plays a critical social and psychological role during an astronaut's stay on the ISS.
