Myconeos Limited is a fungal biotechnology company. We are able to breed new strains of fungi for a wide range of applications including food, bio-remediation, bio-fermentation and production of enzymes and colours.
Penicillium roqueforti (a fungal starter culture used in the production of blue cheese), was perceived by the industry to be asexual. We have not only found the sexual mating cycle but also discovered the optimum conditions for sexual reproduction. We have bred over 120 new strains and through working with cheese producers selected the optimum strains for cheese production. The launch of a natural and novel range of starter cultures is an industry first.
These unique new cultures are predicted to re-invigorate the blue cheese category that has seen little innovation or differentiation for decades. Not only is this a worldwide first to market but it is a first-time production of blue cheese starter cultures for the UK.
We are first to market with a natural and unique range of Penicillium roqueforti starter cultures used by blue cheese producers worldwide.
Our Mycoforti® blue cheese cultures will be available to purchase in the UK and Ireland imminently. Register your interest with www.JKM-foods.com .
We have a pipeline of research looking at additional fungal food cultures and beyond. So come and talk to us about your needs.
