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.

Enzymatic biosolutions deliver benefits right across your value chain. And because they’re natural processing aids, they do it all in a consumer-friendly way. Unlike ingredients, enzymes transform your raw materials, unlocking inherent flavor, texture and nutritional benefits.

With biosolutions, the answers are inside.

The challenges

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

Our biosolutions transform flavor profiles to overcome bitterness and other off-flavors. In plant-based beverages and vegurts, they allow you to increase sweetness without adding more sugar. You can even use them to generate great flavor directly from the process of making plant-based meat alternatives.

The answers to great texture are inside

In plant-based beverages and vegurts, our biosolutions significantly increase solubility. Higher solubility means more consumer-friendly textures, with less grittiness.

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.
