3 new variations of vegan minced meat

At the same time, we see that many consumers now also prefer meat substitutes containing proteins other than soy. In addition, a “healthy planet” is the most important trend for 2022, so sustainable products and transparent communication. And last but not least: consumers like to be in control.
Discover how you can respond to this with our three new minced meat innovations:
1. Vegan Tempeh Mince
Tempeh Mince is a ready-to-eat vegan minced meat, based on 100% tempeh. This minced meat is made from residual flows from one production facility that produces the tempeh cubes.
Niek Jan Schouten – R&D director: “Because we want to prevent food waste as much as possible and the residual product is completely safe and usable, we put it on the market as Tempeh Mince after a small amount of processing.” The product is very easy to prepare and use. fit into existing recipes that normally use minced meat.
The benefits of tempeh:
Tempeh is a good meat substitute. Because tempeh is fermented, it’s easier to digest. It’s also high in protein, fibre, and various minerals.
