DISCOVER HOW TO MASK THE OFF-TASTE OF PLANT PROTEIN
The food industry is struggling with challenges within the plant-based market.
Especially in imitating that typically juicy, savoury, meaty flavour that people love about meat.
CHALLENGES & MASKING TOOLS
You probably know the typical off-taste from the plant based proteins. Plant-based proteins which are often applied are wheat, soy, peas and faba beans. These products have a typical, bitter, beany, carton off-tastes.
A long list of masking tools, like artificial aroma’s and taste improvers are used to make the plant proteins tasty. Resulting in a long list of ingredients which are not the healthiest ones. A lot of meat replacers are high in herbs & spices, salt & yeast extracts. This is costly and unhealthy.

SALT, SUGAR, SPICE REDUCTION
The taste enhancing effect of umami makes salt saltier, sweet sweeter and certain spices and herbs intenser. This allows you to lower salt and spice blends up to 50%.
Umami and especially the umami from mushrooms are well know to give this typical savoury meaty flavour. Perfect to add additional meaty notes to you plant based product.
JUICINESS / SALIVATION
Plant proteins are well known about their typical dry/astringent mounth feeling. Umami triggers the sustained secretion of saliva. Saliva produced with umami is more viscous and seems to wet the inside of the mouth more. This effect creates a mouth- watering sensation and makes dryness of plant proteins less.
