Here’s how one Mizzou discovery turned into a commercial product. O B S E R VAT I O N

Fu-Hung Hsieh, professor of biological engineering and food science, notices that people are seeking healthier foods, including high-protein, vegetable-based options that resemble meat. But the offerings lack meat’s taste, texture and consistency. I N N OVAT I O N

Hsieh has an idea for a process to create a soy-based food that will appeal to consumers.

TURNING POINT

Hsieh and researcher Harold Huff develop a specialized food processing method and determine the right combination of vegetarian ingredients. They create a soy-based food that has the texture and consistency of chicken. PAYO F F

With the help of MU’s Office of Technology Management and Industry Relations, Hsieh and Huff’s innovation is licensed to Savage River Farms and commercialized as Beyond Meat™. The product is now on retail shelves. U N I V E R S I T Y O F M I S S O U R I FA C T S
