Fermentation is derived from the Latin word "ferver", which originally meant to froth, to gush, because of the boiling and gushing of gases produced by microorganisms during fermentation. Technology is derived from the Greek word "techne" and is defined by the Encyclopaedia Britannica as "all activities and means by which human beings transform their environment", distinguishing it from science and technology and expressing the simplicity of practical knowledge. The HSF Fermtek™ brand was established with the same goal in mind, that is, to make our uncomplicated fermentation technology like the bubbles in the fermentation broth, rising slowly in the tumbling fermentation broth to its peak and finally blossoming gently. For more than a decade, HSF has been in the industry not only as a raw material producer focusing on technological innovation, but also as a high-tech company offering personalized and customized services to customers with different demands or ideas in a patient, open and inclusive manner. As the first professional service provider to propose customized fermentation, we have a professional R&D team with specialized platforms such as the Molecular Biology Laboratory, the Modern Fermentation Laboratory, the High Efficiency Separation Engineering Laboratory and the Modification Engineering Laboratory, to turn requests or ideas into possibilities for our customers.
Rich Experience of Fermentation
HSF Fermtek™ divides fermentation into two categories, one is to make the production of microorganisms purely controllable, standardizing and shortening the process of fermenting food, but still giving it the flavour and texture precipitated by time, such as fruit and vegetable fermentation, herbal fermentation, etc. The other is to use fast-growing metabolizing microorganisms as cell factories to target the production that are difficult to obtain in large quantities in nature, for example, DHA oil, Beta-carotene, Lycopene, Coenzyme Q10.
For instance, in the product development of FermHerb™, the partner customer as a raw material supplier needs to innovation and breakthrough in product technology, after improving the application performance of the product, according to the customer's demand to improve the efficacy of the product, the team accurately selected the appropriate strain of bacteria for its biological fermentation, the customized product, compared with the raw material DPPH free radical scavenging ability increased by 5 times, the total phenolic content increased by 1 time, 57.23% higher total protein content and significantly improved palatability.
Comprehensive technical capabilities
In order to enhance the controllability and sustainability of the fermentation process as well as the safety and nutritional properties of the products, we have optimized and reconstructed the research methods and fermentation processes of food fermentation with the help of modern biotechnology, information technology and engineering equipment, including: (i) the isolation and identification of the original bacterial flora, which have been isolated from thousands of samples, such as Bacillus, Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus, Lactobacillus, Lactobacillus, Bacillus (ii) the metabolic characteristics and functional analysis of relevant microorganisms, through screening to improve the metabolic pathways of microorganisms, regulate the metabolic flow, so that they can be directed to the efficient production of functional products, (iii) the prediction of the fermentation process, fermentation equipment intelligence: through analysis of strain growth, key enzyme characteristics, conducting a large number of experiments to optimize fermentation conditions such as temperature, oxygen, PH and the amount and manner of substrate and nutrient replenishment, using international advanced fully self-controlled fermentation equipment, precise regulation of fermentation technology to prepare functional factors, further discovering and extracting natural functional ingredients for application to functions, increasing the added value of products and expanding the breadth and depth of product applications.
One-Stop Customized Service
Smart production and customized fermentation: In the actual production process, as different enterprises have very different requirements for fermented products, the supply of finished formulations cannot fully meet the innovative needs of enterprises. In order to better serve our customers, with our professional research level and "always with our customers" service attitude, HSF has launched the Fermtek™ brand of product line based on the differences of market applications and actual demands of customers. We are committed to researching microbial fermentation technology and application trends, continuously investing in research and development of cutting-edge microbial fermentation technology, optimizing and improving microbial strains and extraction processes, providing the most professional microbial fermentation differentiation services for different companies in fermentation of natural products, fermentation intermediates, fermentation bacterium, fermentation plant extracts, fermentation of Chinese herbs, fermentation of fruits and vegetables.
