Use of artificial intelligence

Giuseppe

NotCo is developing its own machine learning software technology called "Giuseppe", that learns to predict how to make plant-based ingredients tastes like animal-based products. NotCo is using Giuseppe to map similarities in plant protein and animal proteins using machine learning and genomics to better predict which plant-based ingredients will combine best to emulate animal proteins. Founder and CEO of NotCo, Matias Muchnick, believes that "If we can map the genome of a lentil or whatever bean there is, you could easily understand and predict whether that bean could emulate an animal-based protein." NotCo claims Giuseppe can sort through food consumer needs such as nutrition, sustainability, texture, flavor, and color, in ways which help create plant-based products.
