Through his talk, Dr. Amadeus Driando wants the world to know what they’re missing out on, a reliable and delicious food source that is renewable, all-natural, packed with more proteins and nutrients than that of most meat, and most of all that is affordable for everyone. Dr. Amadeus Driando or Ando for short, is the co-founder of the Indonesian Tempe Movement, UK-based startup Better Nature, and an avid consumer of tempeh. Ever since he was little consuming tempeh was second nature to him, seeing it everywhere, and like all Indonesians, took it for granted.
Growing up in a family of food scientists made him appreciate all kinds of food made him realize the awesome potential of this overlooked food source. This was what drove him to take his studies in biotechnology and eventually on food technology, to see what benefits tempeh fermentation has that awaits unlocking. In his studies, Ando has invented 4 patents and written 5 texts on tempeh fermentation, including the forefront guide on tempeh fermentation, the Tempeh Bible. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
