Interview with Amai Proteins - Category winner - Fi Global Startup Innovation Challenge 2019

Watch the interview with Amai Proteins, winner of Most Innovative Food or Beverage Ingredient category in the Fi Global Startup Innovation Challenge 2019

Amai Proteins combines Biotechnology with Agile-Integrative Computational Protein Design (AI-CPD) to produce tasty, healthy and food-compatible proteins for the food and beverage (F&B) market. The first application is a hyper-sweet designer protein that tastes like sugar, is healthy (zero calories, zero glycemic index) and is food compatible (stable for pasteurization and low pH).

Amai (means sweet in Japanese) collaborates with several leading F&B multinationals. The Amai proteins are produced by food-grade fermentation resulting in a GMO-free sweetener which is the sweetest protein in the world and is significantly cheaper than sugar. The Amai platform is targeting digestible proteins, hypoallergenic proteins, alternative proteins as meat and milk vegan substitutes and other tasty and healthy proteins.
