By ingredient type, the whey & casein protein segment accounted for the second largest share.

The burgeoning awareness of animal-free options, veganism, and plant-based lifestyles has driven manufacturers to introduce an array of dairy-free ingredients. In the precision fermentation ingredients market, whey and casein play pivotal roles with versatile applications across industries. Companies like Modern Kitchen, based in the US, utilize precision fermentation-based whey protein from Perfect Day to produce animal-free cream cheese. Brazilian company Up Dairy specializes in precision fermentation to create dairy ingredients, with a focus on whey protein and casein. Up Dairy employs advanced technologies such as Cell Line Development, Host Strain Development, Target Molecule Selection, Bioprocess Design, and Ingredient Optimization. Formo Bio’s approach to crafting animal-free cheese through precision fermentation showcases the intersection of traditional practices and innovative technology. By sourcing whey and casein from microorganisms inspired by cow DNA, they tap into both heritage and innovation, providing a sustainable alternative to traditional dairy cheese.

By microbe type, the fungi segment constitutes around one-fourth of the global demand.

Extensive research and development activities in the field of precision fermentation helped food producers in evolving the landscape of animal-free protein alternatives using microbes such as bacteria, yeast, and fungi. One advantage of utilizing fungi metabolic engineering is that their eukaryotic origin allows them to tolerate and functionally express heterologous eukaryotic proteins and enzymes, resulting in proper protein folding and post-translational modifications. Better Meat Co., a US based company, developed a process for biomass protein from the filamentous fungi Neurospora crass In February 2022, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland developed egg white protein (ovalbumin) from fungi using precision fermentation.
