The Game-Changing Green

Mankai is a whole leaf vegetable-protein source plant with extraordinary nutritional value—higher than any whole protein on the market. The vitamin- and mineral-rich Mankai plant was bred from a species whose origins trace to Southeast Asia. Hinoman’s exceptional cultivation system makes Mankai a promising, reliable food source for large-scale growth and consumption thanks to the  Company’s ability to consistently deliver this non GMO plant at stable  composition.

With an exceptional array of nutrients, Mankai is in a league of its own—even more potent than standard superfoods, such as kale, spinach and spirulina. The plant comprises  a complete protein, a mighty 45%+ on a dry-weight basis. Mankai is a tiny plant — at 0.5 mm. Mankai has a neutral, mild taste, which is not overpowering like green aquacultured algae. Mankai can be used in its raw form as a fresh vegetable, whole food supplement, or food ingredient.

Tiny Plant. Huge Benefits.

Mankai boasts a well-rounded nutritional profile, rich in minerals, such as iron and zinc; vitamins, such as A, B12 and E; and fatty acids packed in its astonishingly compact leaves. It contains all 9 essential amino acids that the body must source externally.  Its protein profile is extremely close to that of egg, the Gold Standard.  Mankai’s growing methods and superior strain produce very predictable nutrient levels, delivering the following health features:

Quality Credentials

Mankai  has a high digestibility profile, at par with beef and soy, and high nutrient bioavailability according to PDCAAS tests.

Benefits that Surpass the Star Performers*

The science says it all: Mankai’s nutritional profile eclipses other superfoods, such as Soy, Spirulina and Kale.

State of the Art Production: Like Manna from Water

Mankai is produced in a covered outdoor hydroponics system that optimizes growth. It ensures that the plant is pure: clean, uncontaminated and free from pesticides. The proprietary Cultivation Algorithm along with other technological elements allows for precision aquaculture which is transparently controlled, 24/7, including a remote cultivation module and calibration under the strictest standards.

The continuous year-round production method makes this rapidly flourishing plant a non-depleting high-yield resource. Harvesting can be done daily for peak freshness. The entire hydro-culture process consumes minimal water and energy, which caps costs and simplifies cultivation, with a near-zero ecological footprint.

Upon being harvested 100% of the leaf is used, which eliminates waste. Labor costs are also kept to a minimum with the automated state-of-the-art agro technology.

In Synergy with Nature

Mankai’s production process makes do with no pesticides, fungicides or growth stimulators (including hormones) added to the growth media.

Since Mankai does not sprout from seeds, it grows quickly and there is no germination-failure risk. The crop is ideal for daily harvesting. Cultivation does not require arable land or flat terrains, therefore, Mankai can enable global reach, growing in places where traditional agriculture fails. This means that Mankai enables self-sustainability for populations living in climatically challenging areas.

The agricultural platform exceeds food safety requirements. Its durable growing environment and predictable yields make for stable pricing. Hinoman’s sustainable production methodology permits efficient scalability, ensure continuity of supply as well as meet immediate and long-term demands fluctuations.
