GW Nutrition

GW Nutrition is working to make alternative proteins easier to incorporate into food formulations. With not enough good land to grow crops to feed animals, animal-based proteins are not enough to meet demand. In addition to this problem, consumer demand for sustainable microbial and plant-based ingredients is growing. However, people are often discouraged by the undesirable color, flavor and odor of alternative proteins. GW Nutrition’s patent-pending CleanSense™ technology uses a proprietary light delivery system to reduce microbial contamination while simultaneously moderating the color, flavor and odor of microbial and plant-based food ingredients, making them easier to incorporate into traditional food products. The company’s president, Anita Norian, explains, “GWN’s vision is to address the global shortage of food, especially protein, by utilizing CleanSense™ technology to make alternative proteins more accessible worldwide.”
