Vegan alternatives to cheese
With cheese substitutes as with any substitute product, consumers will only accept and repeat purchase products that taste good and meet their expectations of cheese. Hydrosol have developed stabilising systems for making sliceable as well as melting cheese alternatives.
Vegetarian and vegan sausages
With sausage alternatives that are meant to be eaten hot, getting a pleasingly firm texture is a special challenge. Our functional systems give meatless sausages the right bite.
Why are vegan meatballs so popular? Because they have a meat-like texture! They get it with HydroTOP High Gel 30, that turns any protein texturate into a formable meat analogue, comparable to a bound ground meat mass. Heating turns it into a product that is pleasantly firm to the bite.
Vegan and soy-free
There is a wide variety of vegan products, and so we don’t just address alternatives to cow’s milk, but also to soy. Current examples are oat, almond, sunflower and coconut-based drinks. Find out more in our new brochure.
Vegetarian and vegan alternatives to meat, dairy and deli foods
Modern system solutions combine enjoyment, convenience and healthy nutrition.
More and more consumers are giving up meat. The main growth drivers in this category are flexitarians, who are reducing their meat consumption for health or ethical reasons. The demand for alternatives to sausage and meat is rising accordingly. Worldwide, sales of substitutes for dairy products have also risen sharply in recent years.
Soy meat, tofu, seitan and tempeh were the alternatives of first resort, but consumer expectations have risen. The success of modern vegan and vegetarian products is due to the fact that they offer consumers familiar flavours and textures despite not containing meat. For cheese substitutes, along with appearance, taste and technological equivalence, economical and production technology factors play a key role in development.
Vegetarian and vegan meat alternatives
Hydrosol’s all-in compounds for vegetarian and vegan cold cuts, and for alternatives to scalded sausage and ground meat, provide familiar bite, authentic mouth feel, appetizing appearance and a pleasing basic seasoning. They also have clear health benefits. The resulting meat substitutes have much less fat and a good fatty acid profile, and are free of cholesterol, nitrites and phosphates.
