The Pongamia tree is a nitrogen-fixing tree that grows wild in India, Australia and South Asia. It is well adapted to hot, arid, and semi-arid regions. The tree is very resilient and hard with a deep tap root system. Historically, the Pongamia tree has been commercially farmed for the production of Biodiesel. However, with latest technology the process of de-bittering the pods have enabled high value pea protein products used for plant-based food and edible culinary oils. Pongamia based products include, vegetable oil, pongamia flour, pongamia protein, pongamia milk, and pongamia animal feed.
