It’s time to transform the food system. Here’s how we are doing that.

Shiru uses cutting-edge technology to develop functional food ingredients which enable and promote sustainable food production.

At the heart of Shiru is Flourish™, our patent pending discovery platform. Flourish™ finds the best ingredients nature has to offer, using machine learning and bioinformatics to mine our proprietary database.

But Flourish™ is more than a tool—it’s a process; one that is constantly getting smarter and functionally richer.

Millions of Proteins, Infinite Possibilities

Nature has everything needed to create alternatives to meat, dairy, eggs, and gelatin without having to compromise on taste, nutrition, or quality. We’re on a mission to create functional ingredients that enable animal-free food products to taste, feel, and cook just like their traditional counterparts.
