Future Food Lab

 

 

Project by Juan Ángel Cárdenas, Andres Delgado and Adrian Ramos under Profs. Uwe Gellert and Carmen Luippold

What is the future of food?
The future is now…
The meat industry is one of the major causes of air pollution. It is responsible for 18% of all the global methane gas emissions. 30% of all the agricultura land in the world is destined to live-stock. it takes 11 times as much fossil fuel to produce a calorie of animal protein than a calorie of plant protein.
FUTURE-FOOD-LAB is the environment that eases the transition towards new eating habits by experimenting and playing with alternative and sustainable protein sources. It features 4 main elements: Controlled spirulina ecosystem, sprouting platform, earthworm and composting container and a 3D food printer and processor.

 

FUTURE-FOOD-LAB features :
-Test tube to grow spirulina, a type of algae that has three times as much protein per gram than beef meat.
-Tray to grow sprouts; when organic beans are sprouted they multiply the protein they contain as much as three times.
– Container to reproduce red worms and compost; besides being rich in protein the red worms are also excellent for composting organic waste.
– Processor and 3D printer; this is the element that brings everything together, allowing the user to experiment with quantities, combinations, and additives into an edible putty that can be printed.
