Using Artificial Intelligence
algorithms for olfaction and
taste molecular discovery

the sensorygen method

Sensorygen has digitized the ingredient discovery process for the flavor & fragrances industry by using Artificial Intelligence algorithms for olfaction and taste molecular discovery. Gone is the inefficient trial and error process – Sensorygen has built digital screening platforms that accurately preselect desirable chemical properties of substitutes that are important for utility in formulations, i.e. toxicity, solubility, pH, vapor pressure, and others.




Laborious & expensive; limited by chemistry and not modern biology; very limited to synthesized chemicals & sensorial testing; an inefficient trial & error process.




Powered by Artificial Intelligence, digitized, highly efficient, and cost-effective.

Using this approach, ½ of the sugar in a product could taste like 100% sugar.

Flavors & Fragrances

The sense of smell has been digitized for 140 different characters (like floral, fruity, citrus, vanilla, etc.) and the digital smell signatures for >10 million small molecules across the 140 characters have been cataloged. Licenses to chemicals with a desired smell profile (i.e. orange, fruity, etc.) for use in food, beverages, cosmetics, & more are available.  Multiple candidates allows pre-selection for other physico-chemical properties.

Digital signature matching: identifies the closest matching natural or synthetic fragrance or flavor substitutes for the ingredient of choice.

The SensoryAI ultra-high throughput digital screening platform is offered as a service for customers with custom chemical libraries, for prediction of digital chemical signature  – scoring how each molecule will smell across 140 odor characters.

Odorant Receptor

Ligand prediction models for 30 key human odor receptors are available and >10 million small molecules have been computationally screened and multiple hits identified allowing for pre-selection based on other physico-chemical properties.


A digital screening platform for human sweet receptors with >350,000 natural compounds from plants, microbes, mammals, & food ingredients.

Identified natural Positive Allosteric Modulators of the sweet receptor that are predicted to enhance sweetness of sugars and sweeteners. Ready for sensorial testing and licensing. 

Identified natural sweetener substitutes that are ready for sensorial testing and licensing.
