Worldwide meat consumption continues to drop in response to concerns about environmental impact and animal welfare, as well as health. Vegan, vegetarian and flexitarian lifestyles are becoming increasingly popular.
Delivering convincing taste and texture remains a key challenge when developing plant-based alternatives. Consumers ask for natural, healthy alternatives with an authentic taste and mouthfeel. (Innova, 2023).

Although nobody doubts that plant protein is more environmentally friendly and sustainable, making it taste as good as meat can be a real challenge.
We harness the natural flavours of yeast to both deliver meaty notes and mask any undesirable off-notes from the plant protein. Plus, we also make sure that your products have that juicy and fatty mouthfeel of meat, which can be so hard to replicate.
Best of all, you only need to add a little to your products: our solutions work incredibly well at low dosages.
