The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Remilk GRAS (generally recognized as safe) accreditation.

Remilk is the first Israeli firm in the alternative dairy market to receive FDA certification for the production of dairy-identical milk proteins derived from plant-based sources.

The Israeli farmed dairy startup is now allowed to market its products in the US. However, it must go through a lengthy procedure to get regulatory marketing permission in Europe and Israel. The firm aims to begin selling to the global food sector in the upcoming quarters.

Remilk protein is similar to milk protein derived from cows, but it is manufactured without using a single animal cell. Remilk protein’s GRAS classification implies that it is safe for ingestion in food and drinks. Therefore, it may create non-animal versions of popular consumer items like ice cream, yogurt, and cream cheese.

Unlike plant-based dairy substitutes, Remilk proteins are bio-equivalent to traditional milk. This means that dairy made with them tastes and works exactly the same as conventional dairy.

Aviv Wolff, co-founder and CEO of Remilk, said, “Regulatory approval in the US represents another major milestone for our team and great news for the dairy product manufacturers and consumers seeking non-animal real-dairy products. We are working diligently with regulators around the globe to be able to offer Remilk-made products to consumers in other countries. We strongly believe that the first regulators to adapt approval processes to alternative protein production systems will be those who benefit most from the availability of a stable, reliable supply of nutritious, affordable, sustainable foods in their countries.”

Aviv Wolff and Ori Cohavi founded Remilk in 2019. A year later in December 2020, the company raised $11.3 million in a Series A round-headed by with participation from food manufacturers Hochland, Tnuva, Tempo, CPT Capital, OurCrowd, and ProVeg.
