A method for cost-effectively and efficiently culturing Akkermansia muciniphilais described. High biomass yields can be obtained on chemically defined media. This allows for large scale production of A. muciniphila suitable for use in humans, such as for pharmaceutical or food applications. The A. muciniphila can be produced free of animal- derived products, thereby allowing a broad-range of applications.
