The answers to better plant-based food and drinks are inside
You’re looking for answers to multiple, complex questions to help you succeed in the plant-based space. But in fact, the answers are inside the plants, waiting to be found. Best of all, you can find them with just one toolbox: biosolutions.
Plant-based food and drinks are a significant opportunity, but giving consumers everything they want can be a challenge. Turn the challenge into an opportunity with our biosolutions.
Consistency and texture are what consumers most dislike about plant-based foods¹
What if all you needed to overcome these challenges was inside?
The answers to great taste are inside
The answers to high protein are inside
Consumers want higher protein from plant-based foods and beverages. But higher protein levels often lead to off-flavors. Our biosolutions unlock significantly more protein while delivering debittering benefits. They can even boost umami flavors.
The answers to more natural products are inside
Consumers are increasingly demanding less processed plant-based foods with fewer ingredients. Enzymes are biological proteins. They work to transform substances throughout nature. As natural processing aids, they’re not functional in the final product. That makes them the consumer-friendly choice for meeting these market demands.
Find the answers to more sustainable plant-based proteins
Our biosolutions can reduce your environmental impact in a range of ways, including local raw material usage. Many consumers choose plant-based foods and beverages as a more sustainable option. But transporting raw materials or finished products over long distances undermines their sustainability benefits. With one of the broadest portfolios of biosolutions on the market and extensive raw material optimization experience, we can help you get the most from your local crops.
Get answers across your value chain with biosolutions
Our biosolutions boost protein yields so you can reduce raw material inputs. And through raw material optimization, they could enable the use of local crops. Reduced inputs and local sourcing don’t just improve your cost control. They also make you less vulnerable to raw material supply shocks and shrink your environmental footprint. By valorizing side streams, biosolutions boost your margins. They could even reduce your dependency on certain ingredients and help you optimize your processes.
