Fy Protein™ Safe For Use as Food Ingredient and Alternative Protein Source in Canada

Health Canada has notified Nature's Fynd that it has no objection to the food use of Fy Protein™ from Fusarium sp. strain flavolapis as a food ingredient and alternative protein source.

The Department conducted a comprehensive assessment of Fy Protein™ according to its Guidelines for the Safety Assessment of Novel Foods.

The origins of Fy Protein™ are interesting - the product is the result of research into extremophiles found at Yellowstone national park in 2009.

Fast forward 14 years, and the clever team at Nature's Fynd has developed a proprietary technology to manufacture Fy Protein™, and you'll find their delicious patties and cream cheese in stores in the USA.

The Health Canada assessment considered the development of Fy Protein™, the specifications and manufacturing method, the intended use, nutritional composition, microbiological and toxicological information, as well as the presence of potential allergens and found the ingredient to be safe.

Fy is a nutritional fungi protein that’s created using breakthrough fermentation technology. Packed with all twenty amino acids (including the 9 essential), it’s a good source of fiber and low in fat. And growing Fy uses just a fraction of the water, land, and energy of animal protein sources.
