We are Moolec Science

Ag-FoodTech company with a global team working since 2008.

We produce real animal proteins in plants to develop affordable animal-free ingredients.

Selected Molecules

Moolec´s technology allows us to include animal proteins’ gene DNA codes inside the genome of the main plants used in food. Each protein is selected to add value in terms of targeted functionality like taste, texture, and nutritional values.

Plants as bioreactors

Moolec's approach is cost-effective and environmentally friendly by consuming fewer resources through biology. Our plants work as small factories producing animal proteins with sun and water, including farmers as key participants in our value chain.

Selfsame value chain

Moolec’s disruption happens by developing new seeds but the value chain stays unchanged. We grow crops keeping original plant proteins including animal ones. We scale by using traditional farming techniques and we recover both, together, through traditional downstream processes.

A little bit
of history

Genetic modification of crops has been done ever since the beginning of farming. In early settlements, small farming communities understood they could re-seed the plants that had the most desirable properties. This gradually evolved into selective breeding of crops. This crop breeding is a form of opportune genetic modulation.

Food
Safety

GM-food-products are among the most tested products in history. The process must include strict evaluations on potential risks to humans, livestock, and the environment.

So, why not use biotechnology to make sustainlable food?
Moolec’s products are based on the genetic engineering of plants to include animal genetic information in order to enable them produce proteins the way animals do.

Simple. Just science.
