When Sabra came to Equinom seeking higher quality, locally grown, non-GMO sesame for their beloved hummus – Manna™ delivered.
Sabra requested high-quality sesame that could be locally grown and machine harvested.
Manna™ determined biochemical traits to meet sensory requirements and recommended optimal seeds to cross-breed from millions of options.
Equinom bred and validated several lines of sesame seeds.
Sabra R&D tested each line and selected one variety with the best performance.
The optimized sesame was grown and machine harvested in the US and milled into paste.
Sabra uses the superior sesame paste in hummus and sources all sesame using Equinom specs.
With the computational power of Manna™, a massive seed library, and a deep understanding of plant genomics and biochemistry, Equinom has food manufacturers rethinking what’s possible. We deliver highest quality, formulation-friendly ingredients, made to order – with a highly accelerated time to market.
