Industrial Biotechnology & Microbiology Markets We Serve.
Conagen is an industrial biotechnology firm that works in a broad range of research areas to support our partners’ product development and manufacturing goals. The fruits of our research and development—and the products generated by our microbial strain development, world-scale industrial fermentation and enzymatic conversion techniques—are used in natural sweeteners, food ingredients, flavors and fragrances, nutraceuticals, vitamins and supplements, pharmaceutical and veterinary products, and specialty and industrial chemicals.
Through careful enzymatic bio-engineering, leveraging our fermentation and synthetic biology processes, Conagen created the BESTEVIA® line of commercial Stevia products—natural food sweeteners that offer a superior taste profile and zero calories.
FLAVORS & FRAGRANCES
Conagen is a global leader in the development and manufacturing of natural flavors and natural fragrances. Through both enzymatic conversion and microbial cell culture, we have developed a portfolio of many natural ingredient products.
