Evolva Pursues New Route To Resveratrol

June 2, 2014 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 92, ISSUE 22

Swiss synthetic biology firm Evolva says it has begun commercial production of resver­atrol via yeast fermentation.

Most resveratrol products on the market are low-purity extracts of Japanese knotweed that are made in China, the company says. Resveratrol can also be made synthetically. Evolva is also commercializing fermentation routes for stevia, vanillin, and saffron.
