Founder & CEO, Amai Proteins

Building a new category of computationally-designed proteins.


Tasty, healthy, sustainable designer proteins.

Amai Proteins makes computationally-designed proteins. Thanks to their Agile-Integrative Computational Protein Design, Amai -- which means "sweet" in Japanese -- bridges the gap between the amazing functionalities of proteins found in the wild and the harsh conditions of the mass food and beverage market. Their first product, sweelin®, slashes added sugar up to 70% in food, drinks, and supplements. It's a win-win-win: kind to your health, gentle on the planet, and cheaper than sugar in sweetness units. Amai won Extreme Tech Challenge, the world’s topmost startup competition where 2,000 companies are assessed by market disruption, impact and team.
