Let me start with #insulin. In the 1970s, insulin was extracted from the pancreas of animals. In the 1980s, @Genentech, working with Eli Lilly (@LillyPad), developed insulin using a new technology that I call #PrecisionFermentation. It wasn’t animal insulin. It was human insulin.
The mainstream would say: “health care is slow, it can’t be disrupted.”

Well, here’s the S-curve of #PrecisionFermentation human insulin. Human insulin disrupted animal insulin in about 13 years.
#PrecisionFermentation is a concept that I coined in my @rethink_x report ‘Rethinking Food and Agriculture’ with @CatherineTubb in September 2019.

Did you know that the earliest chemical evidence of BARLEY #BEER #BREWING was discovered in the #Zagros mountains of Iran? A big part of why I decided to start @BackHomeBeer was to change the narrative about alcohol in the #MiddleEast. 1/5
Yes, #alcohol was outlawed in Iran in 1980 - but that was just 40 years ago. When my parents & grandparents lived in #Iran, there were #Breweries, #Distilleries and beautiful #Vineyards. 2/5
Before 1980, there was a rich history of #Fermentation that dates back thousands of years in the #MiddleEast. So when people ask me how I can brew a #Persian inspired #Beer….it’s because I want people to know these facts about the history of #Brewing in the region. 3/5

There's a lot of justified concern over whether #fermentation capacity can ever meet the promises of biotech at #scale. It's a real challenge, and one likely to present massive roadblocks to promising new companies, even with immediate action. 🧵
So much of #biotech is about proving that a microbe or genetic alteration can achieve X result in the lab, followed by the promise of what's possible "if you just scale this up…". Naturally, that last bit is where the true value proposition (and difficulty) lies.
Making lots of stuff, even with microscopic agents like yeast, requires gigantic steel tanks, and lots of them. For anything that offers global-scale solutions, we're talking many times more capacity than currently exists. But who's going to own and run all the tanks?

The most important factor in how much dietary iron you absorb is not whether it is heme or non-heme, plant🌱or animal🐮 - it is your current #iron #status.
If you are iron #deficient you may absorb 25% from plants, if you are iron #replete you may absorb less than 1%. Image
#IronStatus (is your body low in stores?) is the main factor determining how much iron you will absorb from your diet🌱🥩. The body doesn't want too much so high absorption ONLY occurs if your #storage is #low. The body is smart🩸🧠🫀🫁💡! Image
The body is very good at recycling #iron from dead red blood cells.
Only 5-10% of our iron needs come from our #diet🍽️

#Praj thread
Praj is not just an Ethanol Play. Found this bit to be the best, creating mind map of optionalities requires in-depth understanding and use of knowledge from multiple domains... @ishmohit1 @soicfinance @unseenvalue 👌🏻🤟🏻💯

#Wine #Brandy #Beer
ஏற்கனவே #Whisky பற்றியும் responsible drinking பற்றியும் எழுதியுள்ளேன்.

இப்போது #Distillation
மற்றும் எல்லா மது வகைகளையும் ஒரு அறிவியல்(வேதியியல்) பார்வையில்.

வாழைப்பழ #பிராந்தி வடிப்பதை தெளிவாக விளக்கும் வீடியோ
அனைத்து மதுக்களுக்கும் மூலப் பொருள் சீனி சக்கரை இனிப்பு Sugar தான். அந்த இனிப்பு பொருளை (starch source)எதில் இருந்து பெறுகிறார்கள் என்பதும், அது எந்த வேதியியல் முறைக்கு உட்படுத்தப்படுகிறது என்பதைப் பொறுத்தே பிள்ளைக்கு பெயர் வைக்கப்படுகிறது.
👉 #Beer க்கு பொதுவான "Starch Source", malted #barley (அரிசி,கோதுமை,மக்காச் சோளம்-Corn எல்லாம் சேர்க்கலாம்) அதனோடு சுவைக்கு #Hops சேர்த்து தண்ணீர் கலந்து fermentation செய்து வடிகட்டினால். பியர் ரெடி.

ஊரின் தண்ணீருக்கும் ஒரு சுவையுண்டு. எனவே ஒவ்வொரு ஊரின் பியரின் சுவை வேறுபடும்.

During the Civil War, #MaoZedong had seen his troops fell in large numbers by diseases like dysentery, which was fatal when penicillin was unavailable.…

North #China became the centerpiece of Chinese government’s larger, state-directed plan for self reliance on Chinese #antibiotics.
