The dry extraction process was invented by Doug Van Thorre, a former dentist with a physics and chemistry background. His work as an FDA clinical investigator on dentistry led to other medical research and eventually to carbohydrate fractionation. Menie met him in the early 1990s when Van Thorre was scientific advisor on a wastewater treatment project.

In the late 1990s, Menie learned of Van Thorre’s carbohydrate work; they decided to seek a patent and start a company.
