About Cambridge Glycoscience:

The company was founded in 2017 by Dr Tom Simmons and Professor Paul Dupree from the Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge. Its mission is to develop functional food ingredients for a low-sugar, high-fibre, all-around healthy food system. Cambridge Glycoscience’s proprietary technology aims to disrupt the sugar industry by offering an economic incentive for sugar reduction by food and drink manufacturers in addition to the substantial public health benefit.

Cambridge Glycoscience was awarded a £60,000 grant by the Eastern Agri-Tech Grants Initiative to invest in the development of their sugar substitute technology.
