Food and technology are powerful shapers of our identity. Both tap into places occupied by our psyche and are analogous to imagination and wonder. Food has its practical applications and pays homage to the cultural diversity of our planet. Technology is, at its best, the realization of inventive ideas that solve problems. When the two are combined, the solutions can open new doors we didn’t know existed.

    Robert Yaman

    In this episode we will be interviewing Robert Yaman, COO of the Alt Protein Show. We will talk about some of the experiences we had at the inaugural show back in January 2019 and then delve into Robert's blog, where he keeps tabs on the different patents filed under the cellular agriculture genre. We will attempt to understand the different patents companies are filing and whether or not this is the result of strategy, research direction or specialization within a particular framework. You may also happen to hear some bird sounds in the background. Don't worry, it isn't in your imagination, it is just Robert's cockatiels, Zeke and Conrad, interjecting their points of view. You can sign up for Robert's newsletter and read his blog at https://www.robertyaman.com/.

    Gold & Green Of Helsinki

    Gold & Green Of Helsinki

    Gold & Green of Helsinki has a great story. Frankley, oats are often thought of as a breakfast food, especially as it relates to certain cultural affectations. This is where things get interesting. Gold & Green is making something called Pulled Oats, which have rich protein content and a full amino acid profile. The Nordic Oats they use to create their product, along with Faba Beans and Yellow Peas, have a great mild taste and tender texture. Maija Itkonen is no stranger to a good story and she has` an interesting perspective on many things. Gold & Green is only currently available in Finland and Sweden, but made its first appearance at the Alternative Protein Show. Believe us when we say, it tastes nothing like a bowl of oatmeal.

    International Flavors & Fragrances & BrandFirst

    As a sponsor of the Alternative Protein Show, IFF invited us to come to their flavor headquarters in New Jersey to record our podcast with them live. They are a leading innovator of scent, taste, and nutrition, with over 110 manufacturing facilities, 100 R&D centers, and 33,000 customers globally. One of the most interesting aspects of what they do revolves around how our senses interpret taste and smell. It is an open door to the imagination and the scientific pursuit, dissemination and reinterpretation of the natural world. This is where the poetry of flavors and fragrances have the potential to present on the highest level as it relates directly to the human senses.
