Consumer trends in plant-based foods
Boost flavor and reduce added salt
Plant-based meat alternatives producers are struggling to achieve the texture and taste that consumers love. They’re also challenged by plant-based meat alternatives being highly processed and having long and complex ingredient lists. None of which resonate with consumers who have a desire to be more sustainable and health-conscious.
Our enzymes are inherently sustainable and have no effect on your labeling, except maybe for shortening it. They help you create a savory boost, improve texture, and reduce the amount of added salt you’d normally use to create flavor. All by releasing what’s already there inside your plant materials.
Make delicious plant-based dairy
Plant-based dairy alternatives are gaining traction and supermarket shelves are starting to pile up on these more sustainable beverages. But while plant-based dairy alternatives generally are more sustainable than dairy, they can be equally delicious.
Our biological solutions for plant-based dairy alternatives can help you achieve the smooth texture that consumers love and unlock the natural sweetness of your plant materials. You can also release or add more nutrients like proteins which are abundant in many plant materials and increase the health profile of your product.

Sensory benefits of our solutions for plant-based foods
Plant protein hydrolysates with better functionality
Plant proteins are used in many different food applications for improving texture and taste and making food and beverages more nutritious.
The challenge with plant proteins is that they often come with off-flavors that need masking by some other ingredient. Plus, they take long to absorb and digest.
With our solutions for plant protein hydrolysates, you get cost-effective plant protein that tastes better, is easier to digest and have no impact on your ingredient list.
Flavors enhancers with a sustainable touch
Whether your version of flavorful foods is plant-based meat, chips, dips or other snacks, your savory product needs flavors with depth. Why not used what’s already inside the plant materials?
Our solutions help flavor houses, ingredient producers or plant-based food companies release the formidable flavor potential of plant proteins, so that you can reduce added salt and make your ingredient list more recognizable.
Meanwhile consumers get a scrumptious eating experience that will leave them hungry for more. It’s a win-win.
