MYCO.

natural nutrition for a healthy environment!

MYCO. is a high-protein milk product made of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus spp.) to provide global protein needs.

Use Case

ruminant animals provides highest animal protein to the global dietary protein. but , animal calories distribution and growing threat of trans disease or foodborne diseases. Because of the high protein in animal-based milk, resulting in higher risk of contaminated milk. from eating contaminated food and 420000 die as a result. Speaking of diseases, Livestock diseases contributing over 70% of human diseases originate in animal, human will expanding inhabiting more wilderness which ever more reliant on animals for food. while climate change is opening new pathways for more animal diseases to thrive. Futhermore, substituting dependency of animal product for meeting global's protein needs is essential. Therefore, using oyster mushroom (Pleurotus spp.) as protein source can be a solution.

Potential

Myco milk made from oyster mushrooms. besides the price Inexpensive Myco. Able to prevent foodborne illness showed that nearly 1 in 10 people fall ill each year from eating contaminated food and 420,000 die as a result. Speaking of illness, disease Livestock contributes more than 70% of human disease from animals, while looking forward to the 9 billion people by 2050, humans will expand more inhabit the wilderness that increasingly rely on animals for food. That means Livestock related trade and current will increase, while climate change opens a new path for developing animal disease more. Next, replace the dependence of animal products to meet the needs of global protein is important. Therefore, using the oyster mushroom (Pleurotus spp.) As a source of protein could be a solution.

Business Case

Myco in the development will be sold in offline then head online for people to spread widely. Myco sold in convenient stores and can also be obtained by members of the system so that it can generate profits as well as for the members. Myco will initially be promoted directly to the mother a housewife, and will be tested also in posyandu around. If the results are good and high demand Myco Ready for sale with several branches and has many distributors. In addition Myco will also be sold online via your account Myco account.

Objectives:

  1. Utilizing mushrooms as alternative protein sources to reduce dependence on animal products needs.
  2. Being sterile dairy products and reduce contamination of milk from the farm
  3. substituting dependency of animal product for meeting global's protein needs. Therefore, using mushroom as protein source can be a solution.

Our Mission

MYCO. is a high-protein milk product made of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus spp.) to provide global protein needs. This product is caused by world population is predicted to be increased from 7,2 billion people to be between 9 to 10 billion people. This causes the demand of food supply in animal agricultural to nearly double in 2050. Additional pressures such as availability of land, water, and energy needed for animal and crop agriculture, are crucial and limited because of the global enviromental changes and sustainibility considerations. On the other side, ruminant production leads to the production of the greenhouse gas methane that contributes to global climate changes. Each cow, release between 70-120 kg methane as air pollution per year. Whereas ruminant animals provides highest animal protein to the global dietary protein. Animal protein currently provides 26% of the world's dietary protein and 60% of dietary protein is from animal products. Worldwide, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that there will be a 73% increase in meat and egg consumption and a 58% increase in dairy consumption over 2011 levels by the year 2050. In fact, today's animal agricultural problem havent solve world protein deficiency issues, animal calories distribution and growing threat of trans disease or foodborne diseases. Because of the high protein in animal-based milk, resulting in higher risk of contaminated milk. First ever estimates of the global burden of foodborne diseases show almost 1 in 10 people fall ill every year from eating contaminated food and 420000 die as a result. Speaking of diseases, Livestock diseases contributing over 70% of human diseases originate in animal, while looking forward at 9 billion people in 2050, human will expanding inhabiting more wilderness which ever more reliant on animals for food. That means Livestock-related trade will and currently rising, while climate change is opening new pathways for more animal diseases to thrive. Futhermore, substituting dependency of animal product for meeting global's protein needs is essential. Therefore, using oyster mushroom (Pleurotus spp.) as protein source can be a solution.

Our Background

Started from five students of Brawijaya University under the roof of Faculty of Agriculture of Technology concerning about what will happen in future about the thing we love the most: food. Questions like "How can people meet the nutrients they need?", "what will food be formed like?" and even "will human be like 'decomposers' in the future?" are really thought for provoking for us to discuss the solutions Due to the increasing populations into 9 billion people in 2050, we started questioning about how can we fulfill people needs of nutritions, particularly protein, which is still depends on livestock and animal products. Even in today's world, animal agriculture challenged to ensure global food security. Current trends are being vegetarian, using insects as new sustainable source of protein, and tackling food wastes back into food already come across our mind. Then, we went back to one of our starting question, "Will human be like 'decomposers' in the future?". Simply, just by looking around we found our solution, mushroom. From there, we did a research, endlessly discussing ideas, and keeps on asking opinions from children to experts. Finally, we found our answer which is MYCO., a milk made of oyster mushroom. MYCO.'s main goal is to fulfill people needs of protein by substituting conventional animal-based milk with oyster mushroom which is sustainable, eco-friendly, has longer shelf-life, and can be cultivate in all around the world. MYCO. contains high in protein, zinc, iron and different types of vitamins.
