Liven creates protein ingredients without involving animals by upcycling food and agriculture by-products. Liven’s technology involves genetically engineering microorganisms, such as yeast, that transform agriculture and food by-products (pea starch, spent grains, etc.) into protein ingredients (collagen, gelatin, egg proteins, etc.) through a fermentation process. Animal-free protein ingredients help plant-based foods achieve their full potential in delivering taste, texture, and cooking experience. Liven’s mission is to enable a circular economy in the food industry to make it more sustainable.
