Company information

We’re Aquible, and we’re making plant based foods the norm rather than the exception. We cultivate responsible, sustainable, and accessible plant-based nutrition, leveraging aquacultural farming practices and proprietary cultivation and cold-pressed extraction technologies. Aquible produces ingredients that provide functional and nutritional benefits to finished applications without compromising on clean, soluble and vegan nutrient content.

Why Water Lentils:
- They are an excellent source of digestible protein, vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients
- Water lentils are a sustainable source of plant-based nutrients. Using no arable land, our crop yields 400,000 KG of fresh produce per hectare per year
- The year-round growth of water lentils allows for daily harvests, stable extraction volumes, and predictable supply
- Our water lentil cultivation and extraction processes require no pesticides, hexane, or other chemicals, and result in ingredients that are non GMO and free from all main allergens
