The ultimate ingredient to make animal-free foods irresistible
The key- recreating animal fats using precision fermentation to make mouth-watering foods that are better for the planet, and heavenly to the palate.
Plant-based foods deserve the best fats – we create them
Is it possible for a burger made without animal products to be equally delicious and satisfying as a burger that uses environmentally damaging beef? Absolutely!
Sustainable foods can be just as scrumptious and indulgent as animal-based foods. The secret is to design fats that deliver that irresistible, heavenly mouthfeel, without hurting animals or the planet.
At Melt&Marble, we use precision fermentation to recreate the best characteristics of animal fats.
We achieve this by rewiring microbial metabolism and altering the structure and properties of the fats produced by our microbes, using safe technologies that have been widely used for decades.
Our mission is to make sustainable animal-free foods just as tasty as beef or cheese- better for the planet, and guilt-free pleasure for people.
Doesn't that sound like a delicious idea?
Why we need an alternative to fat
There’s growing demand for sustainable foods: to meet it, we must find new ways to make highly palatable fats for the ultimate indulgent taste experience.
The commercially available plant-based fats used today are not guilt-free. They are often associated with deforestation and loss of bio-diversity.
At Melt&Marble, we offer a better way.
Lack of taste
The taste profile and functionality of plant-based fats cannot compete with animal fats, which are irresistible to the palate. At Melt&Marble, we can achieve fats that mimic animal ones through precision fermentation
It's high time to erase the taste gap between animal-based and plant-based foods. Melt&Marble's solution gives the entire plant-based industry a huge boost.
