Swiss firm Firmenich has announced the launch of Dynarome® SR, its proprietary, natural, Sustained Release technology designed to deliver an even more authentic meat experience in plant-based analogs. Dynarome® SR mimics animal fat release to recreate the same juicy taste and succulence in vegan products.
"We are very proud of this latest breakthrough flavor technology, enabling our customers to further innovate in this highly transformative food segment," said Mary Clarke, SVP Innovation for Firmenich's Taste & Beyond business. "We believe it is testimony to the differentiated approach built on science that Firmenich & Campus bring to our customers."
Plant proteins and fats, while growing in popularity with their reputation as healthier and more sustainable than animal products, lack key components to create and release typical meaty, juicy notes. In fact, plant proteins can often be perceived as dry.
"Taking the example of a grilled burger patty, beef notes that generate while cooking and then mingle with the cooked fat melting in your mouth are key to an authentic burger experience. We wanted to re-create that same effect with a natural product that looks, cooks and smells like beef – but is vegan," said Mark Rubin, Principal Flavorist at Firmenich. "The Dynarome® SR flavor solution we invented does just that by mimicking animal fat and delivering the right cooking aroma and juicy taste."
