Next-gen ingredients made by fungi — Michroma is a foodtech startup revolutionizing the way ingredients are produced by developing fungal-based biofactories to produce natural ingredients in a sustainable, scalable, and cost-effective way. Produced using synbio and precision fermentation, Michroma’s first product is a high-performance natural red colorant well suited for all diets and food applications with supreme pH and thermal stability. By leveraging the power of our fungal biofactories, Michroma is producing additional high-value-added ingredients such as flavors and fragrances in a sustainable and cost-efficient way to replace petroleum-based ingredients, which are harmful to humans and the planet’s health.
