Cutting-edge science driven by consumer demand

A protein ingredient without compromise

For decades, the pursuit of the perfect protein ingredient has been filled with compromises, with available products leading to trade-offs in nutritional value, sustainability, or transparency. These gaps have not been met by the market, where conscious consumers are torn between choosing either a clear conscience or a nutritionally complete protein product. Understory closes this gap and answers the conscious consumers' dilemma. 

Our ingredient is more than nutritionally superior and sustainably sourced, it’s also GRAS-affirmed and reliably in supply, ensuring quality and consistency. With certifications from MSC and Friends of the Sea, it underscores our commitment to environmental stewardship. Additionally, Understory is Norway's first clean-label certified ingredient, catering to the evolving preferences of premium consumers who value scientifically validated, high-quality, and pure products.
