The company calls its technology a probiotic production process, similar to making yogurt. Inside a fermentor, naturally occurring microbes consume CO2 and a secret blend of "mineral nutrients" to produce an ingredient that is 80% protein. Unlike soy or other plant protein, it's a "complete protein," with the same amino acid profile as protein in beef or chicken. It also has vitamins such as B12 that aren't typically found in vegan food. Unlike some animal protein, it doesn't have any antibiotics and hormones. And the process runs on renewable energy.

Air Protein is a Berkeley-based company using CO2 to produce protein in the form of air-based meat.
