(WebMD) Food Technology: What’s Coming Is Better Than Sliced Bread

Dr. Todd Mockler, Principal Investigator, was featured in a WebMD article on the future of food innovation. “Genomics, predictive rapid breeding, genome editing, we’re harnessing all of them to innovate,” says Mockler. “It’s not just about improving the seeds that get sold to growers – it’s also about improving the end product, whether it’s the whole food a consumer eats or an ingredient like soy protein isolate. Innovation doesn’t end with the seeds; it goes all the way to the product.”

Todd Mockler is a co-founder of Benson Hill, an agriculture tech company that has developed a variety of soybean that is high in protein and uses fewer natural resources to produce soy-based foods.
