Biteback Biotechnology

We are creating an alternative to palm oil with insects. We transform insect fats into highly functional ingredients such as cooking oil, butter, fatty alcohol and biofuel. Giant mealworm (Zophobas morio) reproduce so rapidly that outdo palm in yield by 37x within the same area of land. The fatty acid properties cover what most available in palm with an advantageous combination of rich in unsaturated fats and omega-3.
We are developing an insect bio-refinery capable of transforming biomass from agro-industrial waste into a drop-in replacement for palm oil
