Bio Milk is a company from utilizes a patented laboratory production process to create milk alternatives without a reliance on traditional dairy farms.
To create its milk alternatives, the company "isolates the milk-producing cells within a cow’s udders," and then moves the cells into a bioreactor—where they are exposed to a patented combination of materials that causes a reaction. Once the cells have gone through the bioreactor, Bio Milk uses them to create its milk product. With this unique process, the company is able to replicate the nutritious benefits that cow's milk typically offers—an aspect that many plant-based dairy alternatives can often miss out on.
By the end of 2021, the company hopes to produce breast milk using this technology as well.
