Sentient, Sustainability, and Sentiment – The Case against Insect-based Protein

Some consider insect-based as an alternative protein source. However, we at Beyond Impact have an anti-thesis to insect-based – we don’t invest or engage in solutions involving harm to sentient beings. There are several compelling reasons against insect-based protein altogether. SENTIENT: First and foremost, insects are sentient creatures capable of experiencing pain and suffering. While […]

Why you should think Beyond Proteins

Why you should think Beyond Proteins

In this piece, we’d like to shed light on why it’s important to explore alternatives to proteins for a more impactful transformation of the food system. According to Britannica1, meats typically contain approximately 20 percent protein, 20 percent fat, and 60 percent water. Conversely, fish contains a protein content ranging from 13 to 20 percent, […]

Protein Diversity: Embracing a Multifaceted Approach to Alternative Protein

Protein Diversity: Embracing a Multifaceted Approach to Alternative Protein

As the alternative protein industry continues to burgeon, a fundamental shift in perspective is needed to unlock its true potential and move the mass population away from animal-derived meat, which is not only damaging the environment and animals but also has severe health consequences. Instead of pigeonholing alternative proteins into distinct technology stacks, the focus […]

AI in Alternative Proteins

Role of AI in Alternative Proteins

Funnily seeing the potential use of AI in alternative protein production, especially in recombinant protein and cultivated meat, I think we should call it AI-based alternative proteins. No, just a joke. Artificial Intelligence (AI) advancements have propelled this field forward, revolutionising how researchers design, optimise, and scale up recombinant protein production, plant-based protein production, and […]

The Untapped Climate Opportunity

Climate change is one of the biggest threats facing our planet today. With greenhouse gas emissions continuing to rise, we must find innovative solutions to reduce emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change. One promising solution is the development of alternative proteins, which could offer a significant and untapped opportunity for climate financing. Alternative […]
