At the intersection of sustainability, technology, and nutritional bioactives, Brightseed is exploring new ingredients to benefit human health.

Sustainability, technology, bioactives, targeted health issues—all of these areas are seeing incremental growth in interest from industry and consumers, and they are increasingly interconnected. Brightseed sits at this intersection—founded to address the world’s health challenges with a focus on the natural world, using artificial intelligence via its Forager platform to identify new bioactive compounds and commercialize them for human health application. Most recently, it announced a $63 million Series B funding round, complementing its extension from tech into supply—commercializing one of its own discoveries. In this Vitafoods Insights podcast, Sofia Elizondo, co-founder and COO, offered insights into the company’s journey and its emphasis on the power of the plant kingdom.

Tune in to hear more about:

  • New ways that artificial intelligence is powering exploration based on research.
