Natural Green-Leaf Ingredients for Food and Perfumery

Ardra Inc. received a strategic investment from Bedoukian Research, Inc.. They are collaborating to bring synthetic, biology-based, natural flavour and fragrance ingredients to the market. Their first product is green leaf aldehyde, which is used in food and perfumery. Synthetic biology-based production has great potential as a foundational platform for sustainable biomanufacturing of natural aroma and flavour ingredients. The consistent, high-quality production of natural ingredients is a significant challenge, and this partnership focuses on developing biomanufacturing processes with the goal of leading to commercial-scale production.
