Chuta® is a registered trademark of JatroSolutions denoting the nuts of edible Jatropha curcas cultivars. Because of its high nutrional value, Chuta® cultivation and production was included in our breeding programme and our business model. Since then, JatroSolutions has analysed, characterised and improved edible Jatropha cultivars through several years and developed a sustainable value chain for Chuta® production. Just as our non-edible Jatropha cultivars, the EdibleNut planting material (from which Chuta® is grown) allows easy-care of the plantation and provides many agronomic advantages:
- High yield stability
- Concentrated harvest period
- Reduced plant size for easy harvest
- Adapted to diverse environments
Completely lacking phorbol esters, Chuta® is suitable for sustainable production of food. Chuta® kernels contain 50-60% oil and 25-30% protein representing a good basis for valuable products in the food industry. Especially the protein-rich kernels offer a great component for athletes, vegetarians and vegans and a valuable supplement for regions with nutritional deficiencies. Chuta®’s features have a positive effect on health:
The registration process of Chuta® through the novel food European Regulation in on going. The novel food approval for Chuta® is expected by 2020.
