Amai Proteins is the Tasty Designer Protein Company, curing our food and beverage system, one protein at a time. The first focus are sweet designer proteins as a mainstream sugar substitute, with the sweetest protein in the world. The protein has a sugar-like taste, high stability and shelf life and good synergy with other sweeteners e.g. Stevia.
Competences & Capabilities
Amai takes sweet proteins that are found in the depth of the jungles and redesigns their amino acid sequence to fit to the mass food market. Just like one brews beer, the proteins are then produced by fermentation.
The platform company is expanding to other types of proteins by entwining computational protein design to production by biotechnology thus bringing healthy and sustainable tasty solutions to our table.
