Ripple Foods to Develop Sustainable, High-Protein Nutrition Options for the Developing World

Research Funded through Grand Challenges Explorations,
an Initiative of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

BERKELEY, CA – February 11, 2019 Ripple Foods, the non-dairy brand best known for its protein rich line of plant-based milks and nutritionals, is furthering its research to develop sustainable, high protein food options for people in the developing world. The research is generously funded through Grand Challenges Explorations, an initiative of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Protein malnutrition is a major health concern in poor regions of southern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, where protein sources are either too costly or simply unavailable. To fill these gaps, the Ripple research team will create low-cost protein isolates using locally sourced agricultural byproducts. The protein isolates can then be added to foods to increase their nutrition content, or consumed as a standalone high-protein broth. Most importantly, the foods will be taste-tested to ensure they have a limited impact on flavor when added to food and are delicious when consumed alone.

“We believe strongly that people in the developing world deserve food that both meets their dietary needs and tastes good, too. Nutritious food should be flavorful, no matter where you live,” said Amanda Stiles, scientist at Ripple Foods and lead researcher on the Grand Challenges Explorations project ‘Development of Low-cost Clean Tasting Plant Protein Isolates’, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. “We’ve created a highly successful plant-based food brand here in the U.S. and are committed to using those insights, in addition to input from people living and working directly in sub-Saharan African and southern Asia, to create sustainable solutions for people in need. We thank the Gates Foundation for their belief in our mission and can’t wait to see what we discover.”

In the U.S. and Canada, Ripple’s line of plant-based products are powered by Ripptein, the brand’s proprietary ultra-pure protein naturally sourced from peas. It offers consumers the smoothest, cleanest protein on the market today and is the engine behind the brand’s successful line of plant-based milks, half & halfs, barista blend, kids packs and protein shakes and powders. The highly popular dairy alternatives offer consumers plant-based alternatives that are high in protein and lower in sugar, without sacrificing any of the rich, creamy flavor kids and adults expect for their milks.

The research team will apply a similar process to creating protein isolates in developing markets, with input from local-based experts and researchers to ensure they are in line with regional tastes and flavor profiles. Additionally, Ripple will make their findings open-source, so that other researchers and food scientists can use their research to improve food systems for those in need.
