Related tags: Plant-based foods

Ingredients supplier Dupont has developed a new egg white replacement system for plant-based meat alternatives.

The Grindsted Plant-Tex Solution has been designed for meat alternatives, an area in which the business sees huge opportunity.

The Plant-Tex range consists of MA1201 for Burger Patties, MA1301 for Cooked Sausages and MA1110 for Cold Cuts.

Elisa Vimercati, regional product manager Europe at Dupont Nutrition & Biosciences, said: “We are proud to push the boundaries for high-quality, plant-based solutions for meat alternatives. Plant-Tex delivers best-in-class results for taste and texture. It will definitely help customers to meet and exceed end-consumer expectations for quality and taste.”

Plant-Tex is cholesterol- and allergen-free and has no ingredients of animal origin. It increases food safety by natural elimination of risk of bird flu or salmonella.

With characteristics similar as egg white, ease of use in production by adding directly into the mix, Plant-Tex makes both formulation and production process easier,”​ said Linda Yvonne Friis, global business development manager, Dupont Nutrition & Biosciences. “Today we offer our system only in Europe, Middle East and Africa, but in 2020 we are planning to make it available worldwide.​”
