Xylome is an industrial biotechnology solutions company

Xylome’s genetic tools, metabolic engineering and adaptive techniques can modify a range of unconventional yeast platforms for new metabolic pathways and the biosynthesis of advanced products such as Palm Oil Substitutes, Enzymes and Fish Meal Substitutes.

Unconventional yeasts have metabolic capabilities that go well beyond Saccharomyces in substrate utilization and product formation profiles. Our proprietary strains and genetic toolbox can enable more efficient formation of established products and open doors to novel biosyntheses. Xylome can provide custom yeast technologies for the fermentation of cellulosic hydrolysates and for the production of yeast oil and palm oil substitutes from industrial sugar byproducts

Xylome’s proprietary strain of a native, non-GMO yeast that efficiently co-ferments glucose, xylose and cellobiose from a wide range of cellulosic hydrolysates and other organic waste streams

  1. Dear Xylome Team,

    My name is Durai, Senior Technology Scout at StartUs Insights.
    We are looking for a biotechnology-based platform/product service provider who can collaborate with our client who are one of World’s leaders in Sugarcane and Sweetener industry in their Low KCAL Sweetener innovation project.

    We came across Xylome and found your services for Biotechnology related to food industry very interesting and highly relevant to our research. We would like to inquire if you are interested in collaborating with our client to develop a novel solution for Sweetener to solve a global pain point in calorie reduction and fiber enrichment.

    Can you send me a service brochure, customer references, and related to the above-mentioned use case?


    1. Dear Duraipandian,

      Thank you for contacting us. I apologize for the slow reply, which has been due to travel and other duties.

      Given the nature of this inquiry, I will respond directly to your email address.
