Tasty and delicious plant-based alternatives to dairy? Who would say “no” to that!
The demand for plant-based dairy continues to grow. Consumers are seeking alternatives to dairy for a number of reasons, and that means plant-based dairy products need to deliver on all fronts, including taste, texture, health and sustainability.
And the variety should be as broad as traditional dairy too, including:
- Fermented products e.g. yogurts
- Frozen desserts
- Whipped toppings and creams
- Spreads and butter
The challenge? Take plant-based cheese as an example; one size doesn’t fit all! The best pizza needs a plant-based cheese that stretches and browns just like mozzarella. In a sandwich or on a cracker, should it be grated or sliced, or mimic the spreadability of cream cheese?
Made with people who know a thing or two about taste & texture
While a lot of focus is placed on the choice of plant-based protein or starch, did you know that the oils and fats you use also play a major role in:
- Enhancing taste, texture and flavor carry
- Improving the melting and browning of plant-based cheese
- Improving the creaminess and whipping properties of plant-based toppings
