Single Cell Protein (SCP)

With an ever-increasing population, it is being predicted that agriculture will not be able to sustain the demand for food by as early as 2050. Single Cell Proteins (SCP) is one of the disruptive developments in modern food industry. As the name suggests, SCPs are single celled or unicellular microorganism cell mass, which is dried and used as protein supplements. It has a high nutritional value since its rich in vitamins and nutrients however high nucleic acid content makes it unsuitable as a replacement to food and is currently limited to use as supplements. Latest developments in the research on SCPs, their bright future prospects and uses are included in the Food Summit 2019 agenda.
