Cultimate produces a cultivated fat ingredient for plant-based meat that makes it taste like real meat.
Meat production contributes 15% of total greenhouse gas emissions, prompting 30% of consumers to consider switching to alternative proteins. However, plant-based meat lacks the authentic taste of real meat, preventing people from making the switch. Cultimate Foods addresses this issue by offering a cell-cultivated fat ingredient that replicates the lipid profile of intramuscular fat. Intramuscular fat has unique fatty acids, which gives meat its unique marbling and taste of high-quality meats like wagyu. Our ingredient creates the real meat experience for consumers.
