Evolva discovers and provides innovative, high value, sustainable ingredients – in particular for health, wellness and nutrition. Evolva has a proprietary, fermentation-based platform that allows radically different approaches to the production of ingredients for the food, beverage and consumer health sectors.

Evolva’s technologies are based on yeast. Every day, all over the world, yeast is used to make food and drink. Evolva’s approach bridges the modern and the traditional uses of yeast. On the modern side, Evolva creates yeasts with the ability to make existing and new ingredients. On the traditional side, Evolva’s production methods would be recognisable to any brewer.

In the collaboration with Lipotype Evolva was interested in the quantitative analysis of the lipid composition of yeast cells. With its ShotgunLipidomics technology, Lipotype delivered detailed information on the structural and quantitative lipid composition of yeast cells. The information on the lipid composition facilitated strain optimization and adjustments of culture conditions to ensure maximal production efficiency for the compound in question.
