Plant-based Meat Alternatives
Consumers are critical when it comes to foods and beverages they want to repurchase. Unwilling to compromise on taste or texture and looking for value for money, manufacturers of plant-based alternatives still have challenges to overcome.
A broadening marketplace demands innovation
Today’s European plant-based meat alternatives market features a broad range of product choice already. From cold emulsified and sliced products to hot consumed emulsified meat alternatives and coarse ground & formed plant-based products, like sausages, many subcategories are now being catered for.
While each product requires a different formulation approach, and different ingredients, in essence the same building blocks are always required, including proteins, fats & oils and binders.
Through careful formulation it becomes possible to create tasty meat-like consumer products that deliver on taste, texture, and nutrition, while being friendlier for the environment too.
