EvodiaBio was established as a commercial company in 2021 rooted in research conducted by three of its co-founders at the University of Copenhagen.

 

Our drive is to create a better future for our planet by re-inventing aromatic compounds and eliminate the need for extracting aromas from plants or synthesizing them using petrochemicals, harmful catalysts and solvents.

We started looking for a way to produce the molecules ourselves, naturally – and we succeeded. We have made a ground-breaking reinvention of the production of natural aroma that can completely replace the need for harvested aromatic compounds.

The long-term aspiration is being able to supply the market with aroma for everything … and that journey starts with Yops™.

‘Evodia’ is Greek for ‘pleasant scent’ – a name which links to the inspirational legacy of the Greek grandmother of one of our founders, who used herbs for food and medicinal purposes.

Our endgame is to create a sustainable future where everyone can enjoy great taste and smell without depleting natural resources.

More environmentally friendly More environmentally friendly More environmentally friendly

EvodiaBio is reinventing the production of natural aromas for a more sustainable world.
Our goal is to create a future where everyone can enjoy great taste and smell without depleting natural resources.

Yops™ has been tested by a professional beer testing panel at NIRAS

Source: Sensory Analysis performed by NIRAS

 

Our first Yops™ floral blend has been tested on a commercial non-alcoholic beer with great results.

The evaluation was done by NIRAS, one of the top beer sensory panels in Europe.

 

NIRAS professional beer panel evaluated commercial non-alcoholic beer and commercial non-alcoholic beer after the addition of the Yops™ floral aroma.

 

The result showed a remarkable improvement in beer quality upon addition of Yops™.

 

The overall score improved from satisfactory to good, bringing the Yops™-containing beer at the high-end part of the distribution of 7,000 different non-alcoholic and alcoholic beers assessed from the same panel.

 

The panel also reported a clear enhancement of hoppy flavors, together with a decrease in worthy and grainy off-flavors. We are very happy about these results as it shows the Yops™ aroma does exactly what it is designed to do.
