Amai Proteins combines computational protein design with precision fermentation, to produce cost-effective, stable, digestible and environmentally-friendly sweet proteins.

Amai Proteins aims to reduce humans’ sugar consumption and replace the sweet flavour with healthier protein substitutes which offer similar flavour but without the same negative impact on the body, calories or carbohydrates. 

Sweet proteins are already found in nature. Some plants found in the equatorial belt produce very sweet fruits that don’t actually contain sugar. However, the sweet protein found in these fruits aren’t stable and difficult to use in food preparations. Amai Proteins harnesses their sweetness to produce sugary-tasting alternatives. Some of the company’s sweetened food and drinks products include whipped cream, protein shakes, soy drinks, ketchup, chocolate and yoghurt among others. 

Watch as Amai Proteins pitch their sugar alternative to our investors.

The next Food Tech Matters event is from 29 – 30 November 2021. To pitch at the event, please email tilly.staubyn@foodmatters.co.uk or book online here.
