Our goal                   

 
 

is to create a sugar-smart community. Our platform technology based on yeast fermentation allows us to create rare, functional sugars which carry health benefits far beyond the sweetness that sugars are usually associated with. 

 
 
 
 

We make

 

complex sugars with prebiotic functions. These sugars are not energy sources for humans; instead, they selectively feed the beneficial bacteria living inside the human gut. This, in return, promotes the immune system and the nervous system. Read more about the health benefits here.
