Bringing the healthy active compounds that we currently waste in actual food production processes, back to the food chain.
Ingredalia is a company that looks forward to make sure that everything that is currently discarded in the transformation and production of vegetables, becomes ingredients, bringing the healthy active compounds that we currently waste in actual food production processes, back to the food chain. We are talking about millions of tons in quantity, and more than 400,000 million dollars in value.
In the case of Broccoli, more than 35% of what enters the frozen foods factory does not reach retail or consumers, and has uses of little value. We do not want these quantities to lose value, and for this we make an extraction, and later a double-layer microcapsule, which results into a powder, in which we separate the extract, which lays in the core of the microcapsule, from the enzyme, which lays in he shell, that activates it to generate sulforaphane, which is the active molecule that really gives Broccoli its character of superfood
We are the only company worldwide that recovers this type of compound from the broccoli by-product, while our competitors recover it from seeds or sprouts, not allowing the plant to become food. And we have managed to validate this patent without initial industrial investment, working with both scientific and industrial collaborators.
Our strategy, thanks to our patented technology, is much more efficient than that of our competition, since we produce the active compounds in a focused and much more efficient way, proved scientifically, as we are generating our own studies with our industrial ingredient.
