The food industry faces ongoing challenges to find a balance between consumer preference for natural and sustainable products, regulatory requirements, and manufacturing cost increase. Ingredient manufacturers must therefore develop innovative, sustainable, and cost-efficient products to meet these demands. Tate & Lyle, a leading food ingredient solution provider sought a better-tasting sweetener that would fulfill caloric and clean-label targets in addition to ensuring speed to market, food safety, and low production costs.


Using high-performance enzymes, tailored specifically for an efficient production process enables companies to meet their sustainability and cost goals by maximizing utilization of raw materials and minimizing water and reagent use in the production of “clean label” and functionally advantaged products. Codexis partnered with Tate & Lyle and engineered a suite of enzymes that enabled a highly efficient production process and commercialization of a naturally sourced stevia sweetener within two years of starting the project.
