Jean-James Garreau

Phd in Biologie, Researcher in Human Ecology & Founder of Sojami

When research rhymes with creation

Jean-James GARREAU, Phd in Biology and independent researcher in Human Ecology at the University of Sciences of Bordeaux, is interested in nutrition with a triple approach, dietetic-medical, economic and ecological.

After his studies in Biology, he began a series of trips during which he became a vegan. Among other things, he participates in development projects in Africa in collaboration with the United Nations.

Returning to France in the early 90s, an innovative idea germinated while watching his peasant parents make their goat cheese: making a “cheese” based on lactofermented “soy juice”.

After filing a patent for his invention, he won the AGROPOLE Agrifood Innovation competition in 1996. In 1997, he created his own company LE SOJAMI.

Consuming more organic vegetable proteins in the diet helps to preserve our health but also those of the economy and the environment.

A unique lactofermentation process

At Sojami, our lactofermentation process is the fruit of long years of research. Unique in Europe, it is inspired by traditional cheese technologies based on fermentation, but applied to soy milk.

Lactofermentation is a mode of fermentation that involves so-called lactic bacteria, transforming sugars into lactic acid, in the absence of oxygen. It is an excellent way of preserving food, protecting it from undesirable bacteria thanks to the acidification of the medium.

Thus, unpasteurized lactofermented foods, therefore “living”, are not only very digestible, but they also have the benefits of enriching the intestinal microbiota and strengthening the immune system.

Sojami selects specific probiotic ferments so that these benefits are found in its products, making them both more digestible and assimilable while giving them a unique texture.

A company committed to a real Food Transition

For more than 25 years SOJAMI has been seeking and providing answers to issues that concern us all

  • Global overconsumption of animal protein
  • Inability to meet the future nutritional needs of a growing humanity
  • Promote organic production and local sectors

These issues invite us to engage in a real Food Transition which involves a qualitative and quantitative revaluation of vegetable proteins in the diet of developed countries.

This Food Transition also involves a global transformation of our food system, i.e. the way in which we produce, process and distribute our food (from field to fork) by favoring seasonal, unprocessed or minimally processed foods and a distribution favoring short circuits.

It is in this perspective that each product of the Sojami range has been developed (without forgetting above all their gastronomic and nutritional aspect).

It is also to promote and encourage this Food Transition that Sojami supports the association IRÉNIS (law 1901), Research Institute for Nature, Individuals, Societies and its research work in Human Ecology.

Sojami notably contributed to producing and directing the documentary ” Comment Nourrir l’Avenir ? / How to feed the Future ? “, now available for free on Youtube, and which deals with themes related to the overconsumption of animal proteins.
