Structuring of plant proteins towards meat analogues - technologies and ingredients [On-demand webinar]

Video-Structuring of plant proteins towards meat analogues - technologies and ingredients [On-demand webinar]

Plant-based food consumption can only be achieved if the available alternatives are appealing and tasty for the consumers. This on-demand webinar provides an overview of the (existing and upcoming) technologies that enable structuring of plant proteins towards meat analogues and on the ingredients being used. Watch it free here.

The appeal of the meat analogues increases the chance of a ‘first’ buy, and a ‘tasty’ product increases the chance of coming back for more. Consumers are choosing plant-based foods more often, as demonstrated by recent rapid market growth of meat analogues, for example. Still, consumer studies indicate that the sensory quality of meat analogues needs to be improved for these products in order to become a regular choice for the broader population.
