Posted: December 8, 2011

Allylix, Inc. has begun production of nootkatone for the flavor and fragrance industry in large-scale commercial quantities, utilizing 200,000 liter fermentation tanks. Allylix has developed a unique fermentation process to biosynthetically produce large, stable supplies of valencene in its natural state, which is converted to nootkatone in commercial quantities at a reduced cost.

“Our novel development process allows us to supply customers with high volumes of this decidedly useful compound at an ensured high quality level,” said Carolyn Fritz, Allylix’s CEO.
