Arcadia Biosciences

Healthy people. Healthy planet.

We innovate crops to provide high-value, healthy food ingredients to help meet consumer demand for a healthier diet. We’ve also developed a portfolio of agronomic traits that enable farmers around the world to be more productive amidst challenging economic and environmental conditions.


Our GoodWheat portfolio of specialty wheat ingredients delivers unique health benefits with advanced nutritional profiles, including increased fiber, resistant starch, reduced allergenic gluten, improved protein quality, reduced calorie and high amino acids. GoodWheat re-invents wheat as a “functional food,” adding value to the entire wheat supply chain, from seed to table, by enabling a wider range of choices to meet evolving consumer demands. We’re working with major food manufacturers and processors to develop healthy formulations of the wheat products people love.

More Productive Crops

Today’s farmers face many challenges, both environmental and economic. From a growing global population and warming planet to fluctuating commodity crop prices, farmers need tools to maximize productivity and mitigate environmental stresses. Our technologies add value for growers by increasing crop yields and input efficiencies and reducing the environmental impact of commercial farming. We continue to work with our partners to further develop and deregulate our nitrogen use efficiency, salinity tolerance, and drought tolerance traits in strategic world crops.
