Do you only use Soy Protein in your meat substitutes?

No, we utilizes various protein bases in our products, cate ring to different dietary preferences and needs. Some of the protein bases commonly used by us, besides soy protein include:

  1. Pea Protein: Pea protein is derived from yellow peas and has gained popularity in recent years. It is rich in essential amino acids, making it an excellent choice for plant-based products.
  2. Wheat Protein: Wheat protein is extracted from wheat. It provides a chewy texture and is commonly used in meat analogues.

 Pea and wheat protein complement each other to a complete protein.

  1. Rice Protein: Rice protein is derived from brown or white rice and is suitable for individuals with allergies or sensitivities to other protein sources. It is easily digestible and provides a good amino acid profile.

These protein bases are carefully selected and incorporated into Schouten Europe’s products to create a diverse range of plant-based meat substitutes that meet the demands of consumers seeking alternative protein options.
