Functional Technologies’ acrylamide-prevention yeast set for pilot scale production

Related tags Yeast

Functional Technologies has received a letter of commitment from a global yeast production and technology specialist for initial production and supply of its acrylamide-preventing strains.

The US firm had its acrylamide-preventing yeast strains ‘Acryleast’ GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) approved earlier in September. (See HERE​)

The collaboration will see the unnamed yeast firm produce and supply Functional Technologies’ product at a pilot scale level.

“This supply arrangement enables major food processing companies and collaborators, including in the baking, snack food, cereals and potato processing sectors, to evaluate and confirm the feasibility and effectiveness of the Acryleast platform in various commercial processes,”​ Functional Technologies said.

It will also enable both companies to work together to evaluate the production and optimization of Acryleast yeasts, it added.

In light of this initial letter of commitment, there is clear potential for future longer term arrangements and agreements, including the large scale production and supply of the yeast strains, Functional Technologies said.
