Innovation Partnerships for


Novel and Natural Bioactives

Brightseed enables partners to discover, develop, and commercialize natural, IP-protected bioactives with meaningful differentiation at a fraction of the time and cost compared to traditional methods. Through our AI platform Forager®, we’ve been able to bring novel, natural bioactive ingredients with science-backed benefits to market.

Our partners benefit from Forager’s capabilities as well, with tailored discovery programs that accelerate innovation pipelines. Today, Brightseed is innovating with over a dozen category-leading partners in the consumer health, CPG, and natural ingredient sectors. We work with our partners in two ways: novel bioactive discovery and plant profiling.

Novel Bioactives

Innovations Straight

From Nature

Our Novel Bioactives program enables partners to bring novel, natural, and clinically researched bioactives to market so they can lead and differentiate in specific health benefit categories.

We de-risk product innovation by allowing our partners to tap into proprietary solutions involving natural bioactive compounds. With 99% of bioactives still unknown to science, the opportunity to deliver novel and evidence-based health solutions is vast.

DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS

A Natural Supplement for Brain Health

Pharmavite, the makers of Nature Made vitamins, was looking for natural solutions that could support a specific area of brain health. Brightseed’s Forager was able to predict thousands of previously unknown compounds with potential impacts on human biological systems. Forager also uncovered hundreds of plants that contain these compounds, expanding natural sourcing options. With additional efficacy validation underway, the partnership will generate novel, IP-protected plant bioactives for Pharmavite’s portfolio.

PLANT PROFILING

Enhancing

Hero Ingredients

Our Plant Profiling program allows partners to generate more value from their natural hero ingredients by identifying health-promoting bioactive compounds already within the plant and therefore meeting the ever-growing consumer demand for healthy products that truly deliver on their promises.

Brightseed’s technology enables cost-effective ways to differentiate products by revealing unprecedented insight into ingredients, de-risking the clinical assessment of high potential health benefit areas, and generating clinically-supported structure-function claims for hero ingredients.

PLANT PROFILING CASE STUDIES

GLOBAL HEALTH

Improving Birth Outcomes with Bioactives

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation supports the development of balanced energy protein (BEP) food supplements for pregnant women in countries with high rates of undernutrition. To help further improve maternal health and birth outcomes, the Gates Foundation contributed a grant to Brightseed to use Forager to generate insights and illuminate the molecular underpinnings of bioactives contained in existing BEP products. This project enabled a better understanding of compounds that contribute to better health and identified potent plant compounds that can mimic the important benefits of azithromycin without some of the negative side effects of antibiotics.
