acib has also developed biocatalytic processes for the production of vitamins (e.g. natural Vitamin E) and antioxidants such as 3-Hydroxytyrosol from olive oil or nothofagin from Rooibos tea. Using similar enzymatic processes acib can also produce several important flavour & fragrance compounds e.g. Piperonal/Heliotropin, Lilial or (iso)borneol. For some other flavour/fragrance compounds acib has developed a whole-cell biotransformation using microbial cell factories to produce from simple sugars fragrant and tasty compounds such as the terpenoids nootkatone from grapefruits or ambrein from sperm whales.
