We’re Getting Sweet Right

It’s time for a change.

Sugar is recklessly abundant in our food system, fueling a growing global health pandemic. Right now, 2 out of every 5 Americans struggle with obesity, and more than 140 million have type-2 diabetes or prediabetes. On average, Americans consume a whopping 17 teaspoons of sugar per day. That kind of demand has also resulted in over-farming sugar cane, landing it on the top 10 worst global crops.

We produce sweet proteins to rehabilitate foods.

At Oobli, we’re not just about creating delicious, guilt-free sweet foods. We’re on a mission to completely revolutionize the way we think about sweetness. We believe in a world where enjoying sweetness doesn’t come at the expense of our health or our planet. That’s why we’re creating healthy, no-compromise sweet foods from novel sweet plant proteins, a groundbreaking new way to deliver the sweetness we all deserve.

Unmistakably Oobli.

We’re a team of scientists, parents, and endlessly curious dreamers who believe that everyone deserves a little sweetness in their lives. Our goal is to do what so many others have tried: reclaim sweetness for us all!

Our Story

Founded on science, led by experience

Almost a decade ago, I discovered the world-changing potential of sweet proteins from fruits and berries grown near the equator. These plants produce special proteins that are up to 5,000x sweeter than sugar! Since then, I’ve been focused on perfecting a fermentation process to replicate and produce these sweet proteins as a means to reduce the impact on our planet and give people a healthy form of sweetness. Now, we’re ready to introduce the world’s first products made with these tiny but powerful sweet proteins.

Dr. Jason Ryder

Founder and CTO

I've spent my career at the intersection of technology and healthy living, working on ways to solve big consumer problems. So when Jason and his investors approached me to partner with him in commercializing Oobli, I jumped at the opportunity. Why? Because sweet proteins may be the most disruptive solution for rehabilitating our modern food system that I've ever seen. Delicious, great for the planet, affordable, plus a sweets & health game-changer. Who knew protein could do more than build muscle. Sweet tooth, meet sweet proteins!
