Comet Bio has developed a way to upcycle farm waste to produce healthy sweeteners and supplements. The process uses a two-step conversion method to sustainability upcycle leftover leaves and stalks from harvests.

The sweeteners created by Comet Bio -- Sweeterra 95DE and Sweeterra 63DE -- have passed an independent safety assessment. The findings concluded that the upcycled Sweeterra provided a sweet taste while decreasing sugar content and calories. Moreover, it increased the amount of dietary fibre, increasing health benefits. The sugar-replacing product can be used by the food and beverage industry with the potential for other uses as well.

The upcycling technology is available to all farmers with off-the-shelf modular equipment. Comet Bio's technology is easy to install with low operating costs. This makes it more accessible to farmers to encourage upcycle and reduce waste.
