Introducing the first whole-muscle seafood alternative created through fermentation.
Aqua Cultured Foods has developed a novel new tech that creates an alternative seafood option through the use of fermentation. Traditional fermentation has been used for hundreds (if not thousands) of years to make foods like kombucha or sauerkraut. Now, we use it to make our alternative seafood products.
We start with widely available, affordable, unprocessed organic matter and add a nutrient-rich solution to “feed” and nurture the microbes. We then introduce a strain of fungi to begin the transformation. By controlling environmental factors like heat, humidity, and moisture – and nailing the formula – the end result is a whole protein with a realistic texture and taste to traditional seafood. We’ve developed formulas for tuna, whitefish, squid, and shrimp.
