Meat & Dairy Analogs

The Flexitarian movement is on the rise among consumers across the world. Driven by the belief that eating less meat and animal products is beneficial to individual health and environmental well-being, Flexitarians are keen on making a lifestyle change aimed at replacing meat with more plant-based protein alternatives. They are increasingly seeking healthy and memorable eating experiences beyond current flavor boundaries where animal derivatives are no longer ‘center of plate.’

 

The Firmenich SmartProteins™ portfolio of integrated flavor solutions is designed to perform in a range of protein bases while addressing the declaration challenges of cleaner and more transparent labeling. We enable you to create vegetarian and vegan-friendly alternatives to traditional meat and dairy based products in Savory, Sweet and Beverages without compromise.

Our Technologies

THE ADVANTAGE OF INTEGRATED SOLUTIONS

 

Taste Modulation

Our high-performance technologies help impart authentic flavor and optimize the taste profile of healthier products. The portfolio includes sugar, salt & fat reduction and removal solutions, mouthfeel enhancers, stevia maskers, acid maskers, and bitter taste blocking.

 

Functional Ingredients

Whether incorporating plant proteins in meat and dairy analogs or fiber for enhanced nutrition and wellness, our integrated solutions enable you to delight consumers with superior taste while delivering functional benefits

 

Masking

Great flavor sometimes comes from removing what the consumer doesn’t want to taste. Integrated solutions are ideal for minimizing off-notes and unpleasant after tastes through precise flavor masking.

 

Texturizing

We can re-create the right mouthfeel, bite and chew to mimic any experience to craft your product to your consumers’ expectation.
