Food and Agriculture

Fermentöme’s technology platform enables the identification, extraction, and culture of previously unculturable microbial populations from agricultural and food sources. Examples include:

➢ Culture of strains isolated from indigenous or local samples that have unique enzyme systems for efficient hydrolysis of substrates to products: enzyme complexes enabling bioconversion of plant cell walls, starch hydrolysis, recalcitrant or high C/N ratio plant wastes

➢ Unculturable strains that enhance wine, cheese, and yogurt

➢ Novel strains that degrade common toxins in cattle, pork and poultry feed. Novel strains that increase nutrition and health profiles

➢ Microbial mining to enrich and improve the soils for a target crop
