Precision fermentation is an emerging alternative protein technology that uses microbes to produce functional food ingredients. The derived ingredients are typically combined with existing alternative protein products to improve taste, texture, and nutritional value.
Our precision fermentation study delves into the various benefits that this technology offers to businesses. We also demonstrate that precision fermentation is one of the most mature alternative protein technologies, following modern plant-based analogs and biomass fermentation.
Furthermore, as we explore the current state of the precision fermentation industry, we offer in-depth profiles of the most noteworthy ingredient developers, detailing their products and approval status. The study also maps companies along the precision fermentation process, identifying business opportunities, emphasizing the importance of partnerships, and highlighting various examples of successful collaborations.
