Real Vegan Cheese

Real Vegan Cheese, a non profit, intends to reduce dependence on commercial dairy in the production of cheese and casein-derived products by replacing the dairy cow with baker’s yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We are engineering the synthesis of Alpha-S1, Alpha-S2, Beta and Kappa casein proteins as well as a kinase enzyme that may help the process of making a solid cheese. We plan to synthetically produce cheese that is more ethical, healthier and produces lower emissions than traditional dairy.
