Portfolio of integrated solutions for meat alternatives
Imagine the perfect meat alternative: a plant based product that looks, feels and tastes like meat, whilst being nutritious at the same time; packed with meaty umami flavor with a juicy, substantial mouthfeel; and containing added nutrition and with managed sodium levels. Here at DSM we didn’t just imagine it. We created it – with our portfolio of integrated solutions for plant-based meat alternatives.
Appealing taste, texture and nutritional value
For a clean taste with a meaty umami flavor, try our Maxavor® process flavors and Maxarome® yeast extracts – which also help in masking off-taste. If you want a juicy, satisfying mouthfeel, our Multirome® yeast extract and GELLANEER™ Gellan Gum are ideal. We can even pack added nutrients and protein into your meat alternatives with our Quali® vitamins and life’s®DHA and life’s™OMEGA algal lipids. In fact, whatever your challenge – and wherever you are – we have the tools and the team to tackle it.
