About us


Cano-ela is a food tech company that aims to remove refined ingredients from the food supply chain by processing oil-rich seeds in an innovative way. Oil-rich seeds contain all of the building blocks to create foods. However, conventional extraction processes only extract one of these components (vegetable oil) from these seeds. This results in big streams with poor functionality. Our newly developed process allows us to extract innovative ingredients out of seeds that would enable food companies to create the next generation of plant-based foods, which are more natural and more sustainable.
