Superbrewed Food has received a no-questions letter from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding its patent-protected postbiotic cultured protein's Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status.


Postbiotic cultured protein is the first FDA-notified, bacteria-derived biomass ingredient, similar to nutritional fungal proteins, and builds upon the acceptance of probiotics and prebiotics.


Superbrewed’s GRAS covers diverse food and beverage uses, facilitating broad adoption by brand owners. It ensures new food ingredients or additives are safe for consumption under intended conditions and levels of use.


Superbrewed has applied for market authorisation of postbiotic cultured protein as a "novel food" in the European Union, Great Britain and Canada. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) evaluates the safety of any microorganism in the novel food to determine its suitability for Qualified Presumption of Safety (QPS) as part of the European Commission's approval process. Superbrewed's microorganism was added to the EFSA QPS list in January due to the absence of safety concerns associated with the species for humans, animals or the environment.


According to Superbrewed, postbiotic cultured protein provides healthy, sustainable, non-GMO, animal-free and allergen-free nutrition without sacrificing flavour, texture or affordability. It serves as a versatile replacement or addition to animal and plant proteins in various food and beverage applications.


Postbiotic cultured protein has over 85% protein content and is rich in essential and branched-chain amino acids. Unlike protein isolates, it contains beneficial minerals and vitamins like iron, zinc, phosphorous and B12. It boasts a neutral taste, minimal colour impact, excellent pH and temperature stability and strong functional properties.


In addition, it functions well in sports and lifestyle beverages, baked goods, confectionery, meat alternatives and healthy snacks, as well as in dairy and alternative dairy products.


Bryan Tracy, CEO and co-founder of Superbrewed Food, said: “This is truly a transformative moment for food ingredients and our company, accomplished by the persistence of our amazing team at Superbrewed. The FDA no-questions letter, coupled with our recently announced manufacturing partnership with Döhler, allow Superbrewed Food to expand into new markets and reach more consumers through iconic and emerging brands.”
