Overview

Kingdom Supercultures designs and supplies a new class of natural ingredients that make it easy for food and beverage manufacturers to create exciting products that are healthier and more sustainable. These Superculture™ ingredients are composed entirely of microbial strains found naturally in food, which Kingdom rearranges into new combinations with exciting new functionalities. Manufacturers then use Superculture ingredients to create plant-based yogurts and cheeses that taste like real dairy, fermented beverages with no sugar, and natural bio-preservatives to replace artificial ones.
