Fermented foods have been a part of the standard diet in many civilizations for thousands of years but have always relied on spontaneous fermentations. Afineur is harnessing the latest breakthroughs in biotechnology to assemble designer fermentations and unlock some of the hidden potential of plant-based foods.

Designer Fermentations

Afineur has developed a platform enabling the use of tailored fermentations as a precision tool to naturally enhance the chemistry of food. It opens a new realm of possibilities to naturally craft healthier, tastier, and more sustainable food.

We assemble novel cooperative microbial systems to achieve very specific goals: crafting better food. Each microorganism is selected for its ability to naturally tailor a subset of molecules in the target food product and for it’s ability to cooperate with the other microbes.

Sensory analysis & molecular characterization

Afineur uses the latest scientific tools to get a molecular understanding of how specific microbes enhance food chemistry and refine its fermentations. 

The human touch is always here and we perfect our cultured products using trained professional and sensory analyses.
