Next-generation ingredient development: Protera’s Natural Intelligence™

Today’s challenges:
Feeding a growing population with nutritious food.
Current industrial-scale food production technologies have negative and long-lasting consequences on the environment.
One-third of food produced worldwide is wasted every year.

We have developed a unique process called Natural Intelligence™ to carefully craft ingredients that are safe, sustainable, economical, and without any of the damaging effects associated with today’s production methods. Food and ingredient manufacturers can now do the right thing for people and the planet without compromising on quality.

Protera’s Natural Intelligence™ process uses a predictive algorithm named madi™ to identify and reveal proteins that would exist in nature. Using madi™, we can discover and craft new protein-based ingredients faster and more affordably than ever before, unlocking a revolution in human health, the environment, and preventing food waste.

Curb food waste with food that naturally lasts longer.

Food waste in the US is estimated to be between 30-40%  of the food supply—approximately 133 billion pounds and $161 billion worth of food.

To combat waste, we’re developing Protera Guard, a new ingredient to extend food long-term shelf-life.
