Solutions to Improve the Taste and Texture of Plant-Based Meats - a NewProtein Special Focus


While the plant-based market continues to grow, alternative protein food technologists are still faced with some tough challenges. Popular meat substitutes such as veggie burgers and sausages generally have a long list of components, some with complex chemical names that customers don't recognise. To compete with traditional, animal-based equivalents, plant-based meats must feature not only great taste and mouthfeel but also a clean label.

In this newprotein Special Focus, we showcase some solutions to help you achieve the right texture and mouthfeel, and with that holy grail of a clean label!

Perhaps replacing methylcellulose is proving problematic? Meala, Alver, and Merit all have solutions to help overcome this challenge.

Is achieving a juicy texture important to you? Then you will want to learn more about Innophos phosphates, Herbafood's citrus fibres with their water-binding functionality, and Loryma's range of solutions to help you achieve a meaty texture.

Find out about IFF's versatile soy protein pieces. DSM's textured vegetable protein and Beneo's portfolio for plant-based meat, including a textured wheat protein.

Plus Givaudan and Firmenich have the perfect flavour solutions to help you deliver a mouthwatering and delicious product.

And last of all - should you find you need some help, then Azelis will be delighted to work alongside you in their application centre.
