Amai Proteins

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. The Amai solution is currently fit to most of the sweetener market.

Amai is working on the world's leading health threat of sugar over-consumption.

The healthy, tasty, food-compatible and cost-effective hyper-sweet designer protein (x11,000 sweeter than sugar in 5-brix equivalent) was externally validated by leading multinationals. 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.

Amai targets the large sweetener market with the first healthy, tasty, cost-effective and food-compatible sweetener which is produced via fermentation in a sustainable way. 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.
