Innovative food ingredient!
Nutritious and sustainable!
Did you know?
You would need an entire tennis court to farm enough soy to feed 1 person for a whole year. With Promyc, you only need a small apartment.
Promyc needs 9 times less!
To make 1 kg of Chicken, you use about 10 bathtubs full of water.
1 kg of Promyc uses almost 10 times less!
A single (beef) burger creates as much CO2 as a 50 Km car drive.
You would need to eat 23 Promyc burgers to be this bad!
How it's made!
Promyc is produced through a fermentation process, quite similar to brewing beer or making yogurt. We grow our fungus in a modern and innovative way!
Who are our customers? What do they make?
We provide promyc to any company that wishes a different, exciting and more sustainable vegan protein source (and aligns with our vision for a better future). There are currently not many plant protein options out there from which commercial products are made, and that’s where Promyc plays a large role.
But what are our customers currently using, and what kind of products are they making? Check our flipbook below with the answers to these questions:
Promyc is a B2B product that can be produced anywhere in the world, and does not rely on climate or geographical conditions.
Mycoprotein is a protein made from fungal species, naturally occurring in nature. “Myco” is Greek for “fungus”. In the production process, the fungi is grown on a substrate typically consisting of some type of sugar and nutrients, in a fermentation process. Our Promyc product is comprised of the biomass of our unique filamentous fungi, and it can be offered either fresh with a certain moisture content, textured/dehydrated, or as a completely dry powder. It is odorless, light in color, fibrous in texture and very easy to manipulate in terms of shape, form and composition.
Promyc is produced by fermentation, so the process is in a way very similar to the production of beer. After this part, we collect a biomass which is already naturally fibrous and nutrient-packed. We then slightly process the biomass and test it to ensure everything is tasty, safe and healthy. Compared to other products that rely on for example soy and pea protein, Promyc is much less processed!
Fresh Promyc contains per 100g: 85 kcal, 15.07 g protein, 1.49 g fat (SFA: 0.34g, MUFA 0.4g and PUFA 0.68), 0.94 g carbohydrates, 3.08g fibers, 0.3g salt.
As with most sources of protein, it is possible for an individual to have an allergic reaction to mycoprotein. However, previous studies have shown that allergic reactions to mycoprotein are drastically less than for other protein sources such as soy.
Regarding nutritional composition, Promyc has several benefits as compared to other plant-based options. Compared to soy bean and pea, protein content is significantly higher in Promyc and it contains higher levels of essential amino acids. Also, both fat carbohydrate content is lower. Finally, Promyc has a unique texture with high chewiness and strong consistency, which is acquired as the fungi grow naturally. This is different from plant protein sources which are usually heavily processed.
No. Promyc is made from sustainable, safe and reliable raw materials for its fermentation process. At Mycorena, we offer a separate industrial solution where mycoprotein can be produced in a circular way, using food-grade side-streams from the food industry.

Mycorena creates sustainable protein for food using a proprietary fungi-based process.
