We use the power of biology to create healthy, non-petroleum-based taurine.

Clean sustainable, eco-friendly taurine molecule made by fermentation.
Turning Away from Petroleum

Not all ingredients in “healthy” products are derived in healthy ways. Petroleum-based chemicals are used as the building blocks for a vast number of compounds that are used in our everyday living. Drilling for oil and natural gas, using petroleum-based chemicals, and burning fossil fuels have widespread human and environmental health impacts. Why should we support health threats in the production of compounds that we trust for our health and well-being?


A Natural Process

At Natáur, we use renewable resources. Our process does not use hazardous or toxic chemicals, nor does it use fish or animal parts, and it does not leave residual metals. Our proprietary technology uses harmless microbes as factories to produce taurine from a simple sugar and natural compounds.

Taurine Production
Natural taurine made with renewable resources not petroleum-based with toxic and carcinogenic substances and hazardous waste.
The Science Behind the Solution

A Proprietary Solution for a Natural Taurine Product

Using modern biotechnology we fashioned the molecular blueprint used by animals to make taurine in microbes. Our process has resulted in safe microbial strains that produce taurine and transport it outside the cell.


The microbes are grown in a fermentor, a large stainless-steel vessel, with simple sugars and natural compounds. Taurine is released into the solution, collected and crystallized using reusable materials and
non-hazardous material.


Our fermentation process  is similar to the processes used to make hundreds of safe and environmentally friendly products used in everyday life, such as the enzyme, rennet, for cheese production, alpha-amylase for corn-syrup production, insulin for diabetes, and many amino acids and sweeteners.
