Idea description

Solar Foods is a Finnish startup that produces protein from air and electricity.

Solar Foods uses electricity to break down water vapour molecules to create hydrogen. Carbon dioxide becomes a source of carbon, and together the results of this reaction allow bacteria taken from the soil to multiply - resulting in a substance rich in proteins, fats and carbohydrates.


  • Bioengineering food production


Solein is the purest and most environmentally friendly protein in the world. It is rich in nutrients. It has no equal in its functionality - it can be used in any food, regardless of diet.
