What is coffee flour® ?

Coffee Flour ®

Coffee flour® is…


“…An agricultural innovation with the potential to do some really great things for the world. And we don’t just mean the food world.”


From their website :

“Each year the billions of coffee beans that eventually make their way into the Americanos, lattes, and no-foam, extra-hot, triple-shot cappuccinos of the world are harvested by milling and extracting them from the coffee plant. The surrounding fruit, is discarded. It often gets dumped into rivers or left to rot in heaps. So we invented something better to do with it. Something that’s better for everyone.


For farmers and families in coffee growing countries, it will create sustainable jobs and a new revenue source for some of the poorest areas of the world. For the environment, it will remove botanical waste from streams and soil, strengthening the land and lives of the people and species there. And for the rest of us, it will add a nutritious and distinctly flavorful ingredient to the global menu.


We have a passion for coffee, and for the people, and communities who grow it. So finding a use for that discarded fruit became our purpose. We pioneered a process that converts this coffee byproduct into a nutrient-dense new super-ingredient we call CoffeeFlour® .


What we’re most proud of is that we’ve structured our business model so that the positive social, environmental, and economic impacts will be shared by all.


*CoffeeFlour® is set for commercial rollout in 2015. Please contact us if you are interested in participating.

Missing Permits Raise Stakes for Escape of AquaBounty’s Genetically Engineered Salmon | Cornucopia Institute

Washington, D.C.—AquaBounty’s experimental production facility of genetically engineered (GE) salmon in Panama is missing multiple legally required permits and inspections, including a wastewater discharge permit, according to an administrative claim filed today in Panama by the environmental group Centro de Incidencia Ambiental de Panama (CIAM).

The Centro de Incidencia Ambiental de Panama complaint comes on the heels of several other reports of major problems at AquaBounty’s Panamanian facility, including the company reporting “lost” GE salmon, which resulted from the region’s notoriously severe weather. The area around AquaBounty’s facility also experiences routine, destructive flooding.

“Once GE salmon escape, there is no retrieving them,” Dana Perls, food and technology campaigner for Friends of the Earth, stated. “It’s clear that consumers don’t want GE salmon, so why are we putting wild salmon and the environment at risk?”
