Future prize goes to Fraunhofer food researchers

Three scientists have won the German government’s Zukunftspreis for their work on creating meat and milk substitutes from lupines.

The prize went to Stephanie Mittermaier, Peter Eisner and Katrin Petersen, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging in Freising. Their work could result in the creation of meat and milk substitutes that are tasty and have a lighter carbon footprint, according to the Stifterverband, an association of German research funders.

The award, which translates as Future Prize and comes with €250,000, was awarded last week by Joachim Gauck, the president of Germany.
