Dutch startup FUMI recently developed a vegan egg-white replacer using spent brewer’s yeast, a waste product of the beer industry.
FUMI founders Corjan van de Berg and Edgar Suarez Garcia developed the new product during a four-year research project at Wageningen University in the Netherlands wherein they sought to create new vegan ingredients using microalgae.
During the project, the duo discovered processes that it applied to microalgae and yeast that would create an ingredient that functioned similarly to egg whites in terms of emulsification, foaming, and binding properties.
