The transformative power of enzymes

We use enzymes to transform how our bodies use food.

The status quo

From chemical modification...

The conventional approach to improving nutrition in processed food focuses on reformulated recipes and substituted ingredients.

The result is unsatisfying food that just doesn’t taste as good.

The Zya way biological transformation.

With Zya, what you eat is just the start of the story.

With the help of naturally-derived enzymes, we can enjoy food we love while achieving better nutritional outcomes - after we’ve eaten it.

Our approach

With small additions comes better nutrition

We’re inspired by the extraordinary powers of natural enzymes.

By harnessing these transformative powers, we make food healthier - at the point of digestion.

The power of enzymes

Our first ingredient

From sugar to fiber

We found an enzyme with a remarkable power: it converts up to 30% of sugar into fiber in our gut. That’s less “bad” and more “good” for all of us.
