Forget olive oil. This new cooking oil is made using fermentation and requires 99% less water to produce

Elissaveta M. Brandon writes in Fast Company about a new eco-friendly cooking oil.

The C3 Take
  • Vegetable oil is the third-most consumed food in the planet (behind rice and wheat), but it is having negative effects on our environment and health.
  • Zero Acre is a new company that is launching a cooking oil made entirely with fermentation.
  • The startup uses microorganisms to convert and ferment sugars in beets and other plants into a cultured oil that is light and buttery.
  • By using Zero Acres’ cultured oil, consumers are making a healthy decision for themselves and the planet.

“At $29.99, it’s significantly more expensive than its vegetable counterpart, but replacing just 5% of vegetable oils used in the U.S. with so-called cultured oil, the company claims, would free up 3.1 million acres of land every year.”
