Natural Mold Inhibitors

Based on Propionic Acid (C3) & Derivatives

Use Case

Mold inhibition is key to extending shelf life of baked goods.  Propionic acid forms the basis of one of the most effective mold inhibitors available.  The propionic acid market is growing ~3% per year.   

Industry Problem

98% of propionic acid on the market today is derived from petrochemicals.  As consumers are driving explosive growth in clean label solutions, natural mold inhibitors -- often called “cultured products” -- have emerged, yet they lack the efficacy of the synthetic versions. 

BioVeritas Solution

BioVeritas’s innovative process of upcycling excess biomass via fermentation produces a cultured extract with high efficacy that shows superiority to other clean-label mold inhibitors, and similar performance with synthetic calcium propionate.

  • What does BioVeritas do?
    BioVeritas upcycles excess biomass, like broken pasta, into clean label ingredients for the food preservation, animal & human nutrition, and industrial materials markets.
  • What does “Mother Nature Approved” mean?
    BioVeritas pioneered a proprietary fermentation process, based on anaerobic digestion, that most closely matches what happens in nature, such as in a cow’s digestive system. In fact, our process has one big advantage over Mother Nature: our process does not release methane, a key greenhouse gas.
  • Who are BioVeritas’ financial backers?
    BioVeritas was acquired in 2021 by Ara Partners, a private equity firm focused on decarbonizing the global economy. With their financial backing, we are investing aggressively in scale up for our new plant, marketing, business development, and organizational capacity (systems/processes/tools, e.g. Microsoft Dynamics)
  • Where is BioVeritas in terms of commercialization?
    We have a market development unit operating in Bryan, Texas and we are actively planning for a commercial scale facility, with commissioning expected in 2025.
