Debuts integrated portfolio of solutions for winning plant-based meat alternatives
Dutch multinational firm Royal DSM has unveiled its complete portfolio of integrated solutions for creating stand-out plant-based meat alternatives. The range is designed to enhance taste, texture and nutritional value, while also managing sodium content in meat alternative applications such as burgers, sausages and nuggets.
Featuring a selection of yeast extracts, process flavors, hydrocolloids and nutritional ingredients, DSM’s full portfolio provides food producers with the tools they need to get to this thriving market fast, and meet growing consumer demand for an authentic, enjoyable and nourishing meat alternative experience.
DSM’s plant-based meat alternative solutions include: high nucleotide yeast extracts, such as Maxarome® Select, which help to mask the ‘beany’ off-flavors typically associated with plant-based proteins and create a rich umami taste; Multirome®, which increases juiciness and creates a succulent, fatty mouthfeel and experience; the concentrated Maxavor® flavor range to provide the desired meaty taste direction; and GELLANEER™ gellan gum, which enhances water binding capacity for improved juiciness, while also building an authentic meaty texture and bite.
For great-tasting products that also offer an appealing nutritional profile, DSM’s Quali® vitamins and Premix Solutions can be added to fill the gaps in the nutritional profile of plant based products, while the Maxavor® RYE LS range can deliver a meaty flavor with reduced sodium to manage salt content.
