Video-What does it take to develop an innovative ingredient via fermentation? [On-demand webinar]

Fermentation as a sustainable and efficient production platform is becoming a key approach for exploiting the full potential of existing and innovative food ingredients. However, are all ingredients “qualified” to be commercially produced via fermentation?

The answer is embedded in the combination of the desired ingredient and the chosen production system. This on-demand webinar presents the story of ‘Phytolon’ as an example of a startup that leverages fermentation-based technology for production of food colours via the fermentation of yeast cells. Considerations of regulation, scalability, cost-efficiency and product quality are combined into a highly feasible system for bringing such innovative products to the global food market.
