EvodiaBio's precision fermentation-derived aroma offers cost-effective solutions for the nonalcoholic beer industry

January 26, 2023 | Case Study

The market for nonalcoholic beer is increasing rapidly, but most consumers still consider it to be less tasty than regular beer because of lack of aroma from hops. Besides massive water requirements, hop cultivation requires vast amounts of agricultural land and inputs. Precision fermentation makes it possible to produce animal-free agrochemical products with fewer greenhouse gas emissions and reduced environmental impacts, driving the growth of this space. YOPS is a patented, monoterpenoid aroma solution for nonalcoholic beer formulated by the Copenhagen-based startup EvodiaBio. It uses a yeast-based precision fermentation process that secretes the individual aroma compounds that are then combined to mimic the aroma compounds of different hops. This solution eliminates the need to extract aromas from plants, thus, significantly lowering costs, waste, and storage needs compared to those of traditional methods.
