We are a new company comprised of industry veterans dedicated to modernizing the formulation and delivery of plant-derived functional ingredients.

What We Do

We solve the Solubility Problem.

Many desirable plant-derived functional ingredients (cannabinoids, hops compounds, coffee compounds, etc.) are inherently oily ("lipophilic") and do not dissolve in water. Consumer products companies currently rely on archaic methods to include these ingredients in their products - using large volumes of harsh solvents or surfactants. These impart unpleasant tastes, result in inconsistent amounts of active ingredient, and create manufacturing challenges.

How We Do It

Spoke has developed multiple technologies that allow us and our partners to incorporate effective amounts of lipophilic compounds into beverages, functional foods, skin care and other health and wellness products.

Our approaches are water-based, affordable, sustainable and designed to integrate into existing manufacturing flows.

Who We Are

We are experts in the Pharmatech, natural products and CPG industries.
