Eternal

100% animal-free fungal base food, with amazing health and nutritional properties. 

Eternal is solving the absence of a properly sustainable and cost-effective protein ingredient that is flavor neutral. Eternal uses state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence and robotics for automatic experimentation, analysis, and optimization. Moreover, their proprietary Computer Vision system can analyse images 20.000 times faster than traditional techniques, with a higher level of detail. This way, working hand in hand with Eternal's scientific team, the team can refine the fungi fermentation techniques of existing and approved strains, improving their quality, scalability, nutrition, taste, structure, and cost.

The Eternal team has achieved:

  • A 17% reduction in culture media cost.
  • An 80% reduction in energy consumption in the production process.
  • A 50% reduction in water consumption in the production process.

Mycofood™ is Eternal's proprietary fungi product. Eternal estimates that Mycofood™ has 97% less impact than beef, 82% less impact than Chicken, and 11% less impact than soy — estimations determined by combining carbon dioxide emission, water consumption, and land use. 

In 2022, Eternal raised over 15 Million in funding.
