From meat to plant-based ingredients

Despite the increased use of plant-based ingredients in the industry, many products are still based on animal proteins. When new products are developed, they are often given a limited period of time on the retail shelves to prove successful. That’s why proper knowledge of developments on the market, raw materials and product characteristics are important. Plant-based protein ingredients, for instance, react differently in a sauce than diced ham, bacon strips or minced meat of animal origin.
