Industrially-proven technology for dairy proteins production

Dairy proteins made sustainably

Beta-lactoglobulin (BLG) and caseins have attracted much attention in the food industry, for their coagulation and texturing properties, on top of their invaluable nutritional profile. Dairy proteins stand out for their capacity to elevate taste, improve texture, and introduce essential nutrients, and have become a cornerstone of innovation across diverse food products.  

As consumers and the industry seek sustainable and functional alternatives, producing dairy proteins with precision fermentation stands out as the most efficient solution, ensuring a resilient supply chain with limited impact on the environment.  

Welcome to the forefront

of precision fermentation

Working with 21st.BIO means accessing the world’s most advanced precision fermentation technology platform. In part licensed from Novozymes, our strains have been perfected for over 40 years, and used to produce dozens of food-grade products on the market today. 

Our promise: industrially-proven production technology

We are committed to offering a limited number of manufacturers access to our cutting-edge production technology. Working on beta-lactoglobulin for the past years, our strains have already reached unmatched productivity, and product quality. Our customers are already scaling, and we are now ready to onboard more pioneers and move the industry forward.
