Plant Protein Taste Toolbox
When choosing plant-based alternatives over animal-based products, genuine taste is key. Our customers use Ohly®’s ingredients to create a genuine plant-based protein experience delivering umami, off-note masking, meaty notes, mouthfeel enhancement and sodium reduction.
The animal-protein replacement category has existed for centuries and with a few newer consumer buying factors that have emerged, is here to stay:
- Health concerns over meat consumption / healthy diet
- Concerns about the environmental impact of intensive mass animal farming
- A conscious choice towards a flexitarian lifestyle
While these consumer purchasing trends have also spurred the development of new related segments, such as meat hybrids or cultured meat; the main consumer and supplier focus has currently been improving taste and texture of plant-based proteins to delivery improved products to a new consumer segment.
Ohly® believes that for any consumer to return to any plant-based product it has to convince them with authentic taste and flavour.
With this in mind, we have developed our Plant Protein Taste Toolbox – a comprehensive selection of ingredients delivering key taste functionality for a wide range of products including vegan dairy and meat alternatives.
