Healthier food and natural product preservation

BRAIN’s Nutrition unit allies natural resources with an ingenious portfolio and the determination to deliver value. We develop and offer enzymes, natural ingredients and high-performance microorganisms.

We help customers worldwide to...

  • make food healthier by reducing sugar or salt while retaining sweetness or savor;
  • make food tastier more efficiently by creating and enhancing natural flavors or masking off-tastes;
  • support gut health in humans and animals by providing functional probiotics;
  • reduce food waste and maintain freshness of foodstuffs thanks to the use of natural bioactive antimicrobials.

We provide cost-effective innovations – from hit identification to production, scale-up and supply.
