New Microbial Protein Is Launched for Animal-Free Food Market

New food company Superbrewed Food has introduced their proprietary microbe-based protein, which can create a variety of animal-free foods.

Superbrewed Food enters the market with plans to launch a debut line of affordable and healthy dairy-free cheeses that are high in protein, as well as dairy-free milk.

With $45 million in funding, the company has recently acquired a high-capacity production facility in Little Falls, MN.

What Is Superbrewed's Protein + How Is It Different?

The process of discovering Superbrewed's protein was sparked when Superbrewed Food's CEO, Dr. Bryan Tracy, questioned how some of the strongest and most impressive animals on Earth are vegans, herbivores that subsist almost exclusively on plant-based diets.

Animals like the gorilla, a primate at least six times stronger than the strongest human; the horse, which can spring at a maximum of 55 mph; and even the world's largest mammal, the elephant, are all herbivores.

The answer, it turns out, is in their guts. Animals have a mutually beneficial relationship with microbes called a microbiome - that lives deep in their digestive system.

The herbivore's microbiome is the envy of vegans, as it is perfectly tuned to convert vegetables, fruits, and fiber to essential nutrition that sustains incredible strength and vitality.

The herbivore eats plants, which feed the microbiome. These microbes anaerobically ferment the plant fiber to energy and complete protein, which the animal absorbs and thrives off of.

This insight encouraged Dr. Tracy and the Superbrewed team to seek these protein specialists. Taking advantage of world-leading expertise in anaerobic fermentation and industrial biotechnology, Superbrewed Food discovered just that, a microbe that anaerobically converts plant fibers and starches into more than 85wt% complete microbial protein, the highest concentration of protein in a single microbe ever reported.

Moreover, it is loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, notably vitamin B12. In fact, one teaspoon of Superbrewed's protein delivers more than 20% of our daily B12 need, a feat that cannot be accomplished by natural plant or microbial proteins today.

Using anaerobic fermentation, Superbrewed Food creates this superb product via the most well-known and globally scaled bioprocess on the planet, brewing.

The simplicity and familiarity of their process render Superbrewed's protein very cost-effective to produce. Moreover, it is allergen-free and non-GMO and exhibits remarkable versatility to create everything from cheese and yogurt to cold cuts, burgers, and fortified milk.
