WHO WE ARE

We enable CPG companies to precisely tune
the sensory and functional properties of
their products using natural biology.
We re-assemble nature's microbes into new
combinations, creating plant-based foods
that taste like dairy, low-alcohol
beverages with full flavor, and natural
preservatives that work as well as artificial
ones.

We work with clients across diverse industries including
food, beverage, personal care, beauty and more. Our
technology comprises an expansive biobank of GRAS
microbial strains, high resolution strain
characterization, and new algorithms for predicting and
assembling microbial communities.

Su-per-cul-tures
(noun)

1. A precisely-designed community of natural microbes with entirely new functional and sensory properties.

The world's first platform for natural microbial culture design.

WHAT WE DO

We take in your product specifications and success
criteria, and develop a customized culture or fermentate
solution. Unlike other biodesign companies, we deliver
against the end specs and consumer benefits that you
care about, not just the production of single molecules.
We have the ability to impact a diverse range of product
functionalities, and can use the full diversity of biology
as our toolkit instead of just single metabolites or
proteins.

We go from concept to commercialization in as little as
6 months, and work closely with our clients across
definition, iteration and deployment. Supercultures
allow you to clean up ingredient labels, deliver
consumer products with new functionalities, improve the
taste/texture of plant-based foods, and more.

ABOUT US

We’re a team of world-class microbiome scientists
and engineers. Our work is defining an entirely new
field of science, in which we rationally design
natural microbial communities with emergent
functionalities.

Launched at Y-Combinator’s Summer
2020 Demo Day

We participated in Y-Combinator’s seed accelerator
program and presented at the Summer 2020 batch’s
Demo Day.

Fermented sauces featured by Michelin-
starred restaurants

We invented a new fermentation process that yields
sauces with entirely new flavors, and began selling to
Eleven Madison Park, Gramercy Tavern, and Crafted
Hospitality.

Received grant from the National Science
Foundation

We received a Phase I Small Business Innovation
Research grant from the federal government to develop
new foods made naturally by microbes.
