A British designer has invented a food regenerator named Re_, that turns waste into insects - creating a sustainable source of protein that can be used as food. As Western economies start recovering from this global pandemic, we are expecting to see a rise in consumer awareness around food—specifically its environmental impact and its nutritional benefit.

BRIGHTON, UK, July 9, 2020 / EINPresswire.com / -- Foodtech company BeoBia , launched its first to market, insect growing pod, 'Re_', on Kickstarter , and generated over 120% of its funding target in 24 hours while also achieving status of 'Project We Love' on Kickstarter.
The disruptive foodtech brand that aims to empower users to reduce their carbon footprint, reuse food waste, and rethink their relationship with food, is offering consumer's the opportunity to produce their own protein at home. Not only is this an impressive feat in itself, but Re_ has the capacity to produce protein that's 22,000 times more water-efficient than beef.
With over two billion people around the world already enjoying edible insects, the market is ripe for growth. With the company also launching an insect recipe book as well as an insect growing starter kit.
Using sophisticated 3D printing techniques to manufacture the product, Re_ is made using recycled plant-based plastics from renewable resources, such as corn starch, that can be easily composted using industrial methods.

He continued: 'We believe that we are living through a food-enlightening period, with consumers aiming to become more self-sufficient, reducing pressure on the global supply chain. It's all about what is available, sustainable, and affordable. Edible insects are well-placed to solve this global issue. Already, over two billion people around the world eat insects, and we expect to see the edible insect industry continue to grow in Western countries throughout the 2020s.'
Re_ 's modular, cable-free, and user-friendly design means it can be placed anywhere that's dry and at house temperature, encouraging people of all ages to take an interest and get involved. The user simply needs to feed each tray with fruit and vegetable waste, wait for the insects to develop, harvest them, and then turn them into sustainable, healthy, and delicious food. They can be eaten whole or as a powder, and used in all meals, salads, and baked goods—from pizzas to cookies, to delicious smoothies.
Re_ produces food, without compromising the planet's health. Currently, the Beobia team has opened the website for early backers with over 40% OFF discount.
