Innovation inspires sustainable growth.

From differentiated products to new applications, innovation is driving our team to deliver the future of food.

Phyto differentiates its food ingredient product offerings with these fundamental attributes:

  • Novel
  • Sustainable
  • Scalable

Novel Ingredients

We are answering the challenge of processing novel pulse crops into plant-based proteins and co-products: combining functionality, taste, and nutrition. The process we use yields protein ingredients with neutral taste, smell, and colour.

Our sustainability pedigree is also embedded in our products: we are extracting all components of pulses for human or animal consumption. Superior sensory profile, optimal functionality, and purity at its best: all products from our portfolio are optimized to deliver the best attributes for your food formulation.

Our complete portfolio of food ingredients will help achieve the best texture and sensory outcomes for your food formulations. Our R&D team is dedicated to help you with your product development.

Research Partnerships

Phytokana’s R&D collaborates with research centers and local universities to advance research in plant-based ingredients and food applications. We believe that engaging with students and universities is a great opportunity to share knowledge, contribute to the development of the food industry and to the mentorship of future food innovators.

Our current projects


A study aimed at identifying the compounds responsible for off-flavours in pulses to deliver superior products. This project is a precursor to our research to improve our process and mitigate sensory outcomes.


Phytokana is exploring extrusion recipe development using pulse ingredients.


Phytokana is sponsoring a student project at the University of Guelph, focusing on the development of a functional vegan milk.
