We biodesign the next generation of natural ingredients.
Reinventing the food industry one ingredient at time.
When it comes to promoting health and sustainability, the products that we consume hold so much more potential. Sophisticated formulation isn't the problem, but rather the quality of everyday ingredients. That’s why we are leading the transition to a new era of ingredients, moving past petrochemical-derived synthesis, plant extraction, and the use of animals. Leveraging the power of science and technology, we are creating a future of abundance and naturality.
"We leverage the power of biotech to build a more colorful future"
We believe in the creative capacity of science.
In 2019, fates united when Dr. Mauricio Braia, an expert in industrial biotechnology, met Ricky Cassini, an entrepreneur and business consultant.
Inspired to reimagine the health and sustainability potential of our food system, they began a shared journey focused on discovering how to transform what we consume for the better.
Michroma sees that vision become an exciting new reality.
Meet our team.
We can do better. That’s why we've gathered a group of experts, exceptional talents and change-maker who want to create an impact in the world.
We are introducing novel natural colorants to meet consumers demand of better & healthier products.
We use advanced computation, algorithms, and predictive models to leverage our synbio toolbox and novel fungi strains.
Our cutting-edge fungal synbio toolbox and chassis strains allow us to unlock the full potential of filamentous fungi using precise and efficient engineering.
Our robust fermentation processes harness cutting-edge bioreactor design, progressive bioengineering principles, and growth kinetics modeling. The result is exceptional productivity from lab to industrial scale.
Organic Chemistry & Formulation:
With the help of traditional and computational chemistry, we study the structure, properties, and reactivity of each molecule in order to develop ingredients that meet the highest industry standards.
Our R&D team boosts results through creative experiment design, data analysis, and informatics, optimizing and accelerating the development of Michroma products.
We are not alone
We’re proud to share our journey with world-class supporters.
