Alchemy Foodtech is a food innovation company with a mission to “Make Carbs Good” by helping to reduce the incidence—and improve the management—of chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity. Their patented fiber technology, Alchemy Fibre™, combines food science and biochemistry to improve taste profiles while enabling key enhancements to nutrition: reduced carbohydrates and sugars, increased fiber and prebiotics, and decreased glycemic index scores.

Headquartered in Singapore, Alchemy Foodtech has collaborated with food manufacturers like Subway—helping to reduce sugar in their chocolate chip cookies by 50% while maintaining taste and texture—and Dingdong Maicai, the largest e-commerce grocer in China, launching a sugar-free, lower-carb bread toast for their house brand, Bao Bakery.

Notable Achievements

  • Launched a sugar-reduction solution with Subway, a major international fast food chain—the first startup in the world to do so with any fast
  • Forged strategic relationships with market-leading and publicly listed food companies like MAMA Noodles and Thai Union.
  • Made approximately 18 million meals made healthier as of Q1 2023.
