microTERRA has developed a unique functional ingredient for the plant-based food industry, which has no color or taste, enabling customers to deliver nutritional value without sacrificing the texture, taste, or presentation of plant-based products that aim to mirror traditional protein sources.
microTERRA partners with existing aquaculture farms in Mexico to grow lemna, an aquatic plant, in a scalable, affordable, and sustainable way. microTERRA is able to leverage these aquafarms to produce lemna 3-5 times cheaper than competitors, while providing farmers with an extra revenue stream, cleaner aquafarm water, and a reduced water footprint by two thirds. microTERRA’s vision is to create ingredients that instead of using water, are cleaning water.
